The All Nippon Airways pet policy is as follows:
Pets are not accepted in the cabin, but will be carried in the cargo section.
ANA welcome dogs, cats, small birds, and other small animals (e.g., rabbits, hamsters and ferrets) but cold-blooded animals (e.g., turtles and lizards), reptiles and fish are not allowed.
The transportation of short-nosed dog breeds is suspended between May 1 and October 31.
Quarantine Regulations for those passengers with dogs and cats:
You must submit advance notification to the Animal Quarantine Service of Japan (AQS) at least 40 days prior to arrival in Japan.
For dogs or cats imported from rabies-free countries or regions, the quarantine period will be completed within 12 hours if you have an export certificate that the animal is fitted with a microchip of ISO standards.
Please note that the maximum quarantine period will be 180 days in case the conditions does not meet the regulations.
Quarantine Regulations for those passengers with rodents (e.g., rabbits, hamsters and ferrets) and birds:
The notification document and the health certificate are required to be submitted to Quarantine Station of Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare upon arrival of the animal.
The Health certificate should be issued by the authority of the exporting country.
Taking a pet to a foreign country involves preparation and planning far in advance of your departure date. Requirements for pet travel to a foreign country are set by the destination country. If you are you traveling to another country and bringing along your pet you’ll need to meet the animal health requirements of the country you are visiting.
