To bring pigeons into Oregon you must have a Certificate of
Veterinary Inspection (CVI).
In some situations, multiple owners bring their pigeons to a
central location where they are loaded into a vehicle and driven to the release
site. Each pigeon is identified on an entry form. They are shipped immediately
and released to fly home.
To simplify things for groups like this, a veterinarian can
be on hand to inspect the pigeons while they are loaded and can write a single
CVI for the load. The veterinarian must attach copies of the owner's entry
forms to the CVI so traceback is possible.
An import permit is required. Please call our office to
obtain an import permit prior to shipment.
