Virginia regulations govern the entry of animals into the Commonwealth. If you are bringing an animal into Virginia, please click on the appropriate link below to find out what is required.
Virginia regulations govern the entry of animals into the Commonwealth. Details are available in Virginia’s Cattle Entry Requirements. Please indicate on the CVI if bulls younger than 18 months of age are virgin or nonvirgin. Non-virgin bulls under 18 months of age and all bulls 18 months of age or older moving to a farm or exhibition must have a negative PCR test for Trichomoniasis within 30 days prior to entry.
Beginning June 1, 2019, accredited veterinarians responsible for certifying the health status of cattle, bison and other bovines being shipped to the Commonwealth of Virginia must obtain an entry permit. An online animal entry permit system is available at no cost for accredited veterinarians to submit required information and obtain an entry permit. A permit is not required if veterinarians submit an electronic Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (eCVI) from an approved commercial application. Currently, only eCVI submissions from GlobalVetLink or Vet Sentry are approved. Additional information is provided below:
