International Air Travel with an ESA

An ESA, or Emotional Support Animal is a not a pet. Rather, an Emotional Support Dog is a companion animal that provides therapeutic benefit to an individual with a psychiatric or mental disability.

Recommendd by a licensed mental health professional or physician, your Emotional Support Dog can travel in the cabin of the aircraft. When it comes to the Air Carrier Access Act, there are no breed, size, or weight restrictions. Therefore, such restrictions are not applicable to any individual who is undergoing emotional support animal treatment for their qualifying medical condition.

Our legally-recommended an Emotional Support Animal letters ensure you and your furry friend can travel together abroad together.
