To ship an animal out of the country, it is necessary to have the proper certificates showing that the animal is healthy and that it has had all of the necessary screenings from a vet. An eCVI is an electronic version of a certificate of veterinary inspection that accomplishes this goal. In addition, you will still need to use the APHIS Form 7001.
In all cases it is necessary to submit an APHIS Form 7001. Some states also require a electronic form as well such as VetSentry. This electronic version of documentation typically provides for all of the needs of the airline or other transportation company to make moving the animal a bit easier in most cases, and it alerts a state about an animal movement faster. There is a box at the top of the VetSentry eCVI form that you check for international use.
Some states no longer use or accept the APHIS Form 7001. Each state sets its own rules and requirements for this type of travel. It is up to them to determine what is enough information as well as what type of information they need. They also may elect to use this type of electronic verification because it is easier to manage and use. A veterinarian can help you manage which states still allow the paper certificate.
This is an ongoing and changing process. If you are unsure if your state requires the eCVI, it is best to contact a shipping company to get more information. Many states are starting to require an eCVI such as VetSentry along with the APHIS Form 7001. A veterinarian can assist you with this requirement.
An eCVI provides important information about the health and wellbeing of an animal that is traveling over state lines. This helps to minimize the spread of illness among animals, and in some cases, there are regulations on how individuals can move animals. But it also is a faster means to communicate what animals are coming in and what possible concerns there may be impacting the import and possibly even catch issues before the animal leaves.
