Okinawa bound? Your four-legged family members can make the move too!

“Good Day Everyone,

Attempting to keep everyone in the communication loop, I wanted to provide you with a quick update regarding bringing pets to Okinawa. In the past, we advocated against this since not all housing was considered pet friendly. Since that time, we got a new housing chief and as a result all military family housing is now pet friendly. Within the towers specifically, cats are allowed on all floors and dogs are limited to the first two floors.

Also, in the past, people left their pets behind per the suggestion only to be penalized once they arrived with being assigned a non-pet friendly house based on the fact they did not bring their pets. Again, this will not likely occur now since all military family housing is pet friendly. However, considering all of this, we are now not suggesting or advertising that people leave their pets behind. If people have more questions regarding this issue, please refer them to our housing office or to us for further clarification.

Also, please ensure members understand the pet importation process by referring them to this link: http://www.maff.go.jp/aqs/english/index.html.

I hope everyone is enjoying the busy relocation season! We are preparing for an incoming super typhoon, so pray that it doesn’t relocate us back to the states! LOL!!!

Respectfully Submitted,”

I didn’t want to include names but there’s a handy link above to grab additional information.  I’m not positive off-hand what the policy is for Hawaii but, of course, there’s still vet files, shots and quarantine to consider so dont’ forget to take that into account.
