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 Goat and Sheep Entry Requirements.
All goats and sheep entering Virginia must be officially identified and the official identification number must be noted on the Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (CVI). No goat or sheep infected with scrapie, or the offspring of a goat or sheep infected with scrapie, may enter Virginia.
If you are planning to ship goats or sheep to Virginia from a tuberculosis or brucellosis positive area, additional testing requirements apply.
Goats and sheep may be imported for immediate slaughter into Virginia without a CVI. Goats and sheep from a region considered free of tuberculosis and brucellosis may enter Virginia for the purpose of sale at a marketing facility without a CVI only if the sheep or goats are officially identified before leaving the facility and the facility maintains appropriate records.
