Virginia regulations govern the entry of animals into the Commonwealth. Details are available in Virginia’s Cattle Entry Requirements.
All cattle entering Virginia must bear official identification, and the official identification number must be noted on the Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) or other movement document approved by the State Veterinarian. Permits are not required for cattle entering Virginia unless the cattle are originating from an area that is considered positive for tuberculosis or brucellosis by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
If you are planning to ship cattle to Virginia from a tuberculosis or brucellosis positive area, additional testing requirements apply and a permit is required; please contact the Office of Veterinary Services.
