I just got my K1 visa and I will be moving to the US in late January with my fiance. We adopted a dog in Albania about half a year ago and he will be moving with us. We are currently in Serbia with him, so he won't be needing the CDC dog import permit as these countries are not on the red list for dog rabies.
We are considering using a pet transport agency, but we would rather get him there ourselves. All advice is welcome though.
The best option for us to fly is transiting in Turkey (rabies red list), for 2.5 hours, but since he will not be going through customs, he should be good to enter the US.
We are 6 weeks away from flying, so any and all advice is welcome!
