Passport requirements for movement of horses

21 Apr

To many of you this may already be common  knowledge but it seems not all know which passports are acceptable as a movement document for horses into and within the AHS controlled area.

For any horse that needs to be moved between AHS zones, and from the infected zone into the AHS controlled area, ONLY the following passports comply:

The SAEF passport: FEI group IX passport (the old blue ones and the new green ones)

The NHRA passports (green jockey club passports used for thoroughbreds)

The import export council passports (Red passports issued by the NHRA)

And since September 2015 the Red Studbook passports, but only the new ones.ALL THE OLD STUDBOOK PASSPORTS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR MOVEMENT, AND ACTUALLY HAVE NEVER BEEN ON THE ACCEPTED LIST OF PASSPORTS.

The vaccinations for AHS must have been done by a veterinarian, and the ID page of the passport must have been completed by a veterinarian.

FOR THOSE GOING TO SHOWS OUTSIDE OF THE CONTROLLED AREA, ALSO PLEASE NOTE THAT A MOVEMENT APPLICATION FORM MUST BE COMPLETED.  This application  is also required for any other movement of horses from the infected zone into the AHS controlled area.
