Virginia regulations govern the entry of animals into the Commonwealth. Details are available in Virginia’s Avian Entry Requirements.
Before bringing a wild or exotic bird into Virginia, check with the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources to ensure that possession of the bird is not prohibited or restricted.
If you are a resident of Virginia or are moving to Virginia, there are no entry requirements for you to bring in your personal pet birds.
If the bird is intended to be used for any purpose other than being a personal pet (such as offering it for sale or adoption, breeding it, or using it for promotional purposes) the bird will need to be accompanied by a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI) issued within 10 days prior to entry into Virginia.
