How do you import a pet into Saint Lucia or any other eastern caribbean island?
I want to import a pet ferret into Saint Lucia. I moved there a while back, and I've searched every pet store on the island for one, but to no avail. How do I import one to Saint Lucia? A friend of mine is willing to send one down for me, but how do I import it?
I'm NOT talking about a dog here. I'm talking about a ferret.
Try getting a health certificate, an import license, and the animal must be checked by a vet. Good luck.
