BAHA fax - 09/30/10 09:10 PM

I've been trying for 2 days to fax my application to import my dog. I've tried 2 different fax #s. One I got of the web the other one I called to get. I can't get either to go through. Anyone have a # that works....I'm faxing from Illinois.

The best way is to scan it and then email. I had trouble with the fax# as well, I think maybe the fax line & phone line are the same line.

I emailed mine as well. However, they will fax the approval back to you and I had quite a bit of trouble receiving the document (multiple fax machines later, I had it in my hand for the flight).

I have found that following up with a phone call each time I fax or e-mail seems to keep the process moving....My dog and I have made the trip several times (she now has a BAHA passport) and the guys at the airport are super great to me and to my Sophia....Thank you BAHA

emailing the information is what I have always done,it is best as you receive a writen reply which I suggest you print for your travels. You need to specifically request a reply in your email. You need as much documentation leaving the states and arriving Belize, both ends have given me trouble yet we've flown over 5 times and meet all requirements.

I just faxed an application today and it went through. The number was 011-501-824-4889 attention Ms Melody Robateau who is Administrative Assistant/Permit officer. I asked in my cover letter to fax my permit back to me when it is approved. Now the question is will I get a response. I will let you know. Please let me know how the email route goes because I may have to try that if I don't hear back from them. Good luck.

That's the same number I tried to fax. It wouldn't go through tried at least 4 times and 2 different days. Maybe I'll try faxing again if I don't hear anything in a couple days.

I am posting this on behalf of a friend who is trying to get permits for their dog.

Any advice would be appreciated!

"I am becoming a little frantic with the dog import problem. I sent emails as you suggested then called BAHA. When I asked for Ms Nadime Hegar, I was told that there was no such person at BAHA. I find this very odd, because I have delt with Ms Hegar for the last several years. She has always been helpful. I was refered to Juliana Guerra. She gave me her personal email address and told me the information needed for the permit. I sent the information to her and to [email protected] but I can get no response. I do not know whether anyone has received my emails. Do you know if Nadime Hegar is still at BAHA and how I can reach her? "

Thank you!

Wow, If I didn't know better I would have thought I was the one writing that. Besides being told there is no one by Ms Nadine Hegar they tell me the person I need to talk to is out for lunch or just stepped away.
I asked to just let me know they have received my e-mail...nothing.

Sounds like this is an opportunity for improvement! Can anybody out there help? My friends (and I am sure changosgal) are on a schedule and need to get a response from them. Thanks!

I don't know if the girl I worked with at Baha is still around but her name is Jerlyn Forman and her e-mail is [email protected] She would write back to me within one day.
Good Luck

Re: BAHA fax - 10/15/10 02:21 AM

Thanks for all the help. I received my permit today as promised.
Snoopysmom I hope your friend was also able to get theirs.

Re: BAHA fax - 10/15/10 12:44 PM

I'm planning on going through this for a flight down about Jan. 15th. How soon should I start this process? Do I just Email BAHA and they will send me an application? I kind of dread the heartburn that I know is ahead with getting my best friend down there with me.

One of the first problems is going to be to find a fax near me where they can fax the permit but I guess that will be the least of it. I wished they would just scan it and email it.

I've started by reading everything available on this subject and buying a kennel which I now have Zeke trained to go into on command. I leave him in there for up to an hour so far and he seems comfortable. I will extend the time soon and move on to the next steps.

Thanks

Jim I printed the application off the BAHA website. Scan and email it and asked them to email it back. After using Jerlyn for a contact it only took a couple days.

Re: BAHA fax - 10/15/10 07:57 PM

Did they email it back to you? I probably misunderstood that it was faxed back to you. Thanks

Re: BAHA fax - 10/19/10 04:57 PM

Update from my friends that were trying to make contact with BAHA:

"Jerlyn Tucker proved to be a great contact. We have the permit. I
doubt that we would have ever gotten it without her"

Jerlyn Forman's e-mail is [email protected]
Thanks to all for sharing their knowledge!!!!

Re: BAHA fax - 10/20/10 01:58 AM

On the 15th I requested an application by email and I'm still waiting. I have plenty of time but I can see where this could turn out to be a real hassle. frown

Is there really a BAHA passport? If so, how do you go about getting one? I bring my dogs down every year, and would love to expedite the process. We're always the last ones through after going through customs, BAHA inspection and then paying for everything. Last time, even though we had everything in order, and didn't slow the process down at all, Tropic ended up having to bring in another plane for us as we missed the last one of the day. (Gotta LOVE Tropic!!)

Mayahouse
We bring down our dog 4-5 times each year
Yes there is a pet passport which is valid for 1 year it costs $100. You will need to provide a US vet certificate of health. Once you have the passport you just pay a BZ 20 "inspection fee" each time you arrive and you need to have a current US certificate of health.
Jerlyn Tucker at BAHA is always helpful getting our pet passport. We arrived yesterday and our passport was waiting at BAHA for us.
If you contact Jerlyn she can E mail you a application form or E mail me at [email protected] and I will send you a copy

Does anyone have the phone number for Jerlyn Tucker? None of the three BAHA numbers I have used in the past have been answering since I started calling yesterday morning.

Re: BAHA fax - 11/19/10 10:55 PM

Jerlyn's number is 226-4794

Re: BAHA fax - 11/19/10 11:25 PM

Thanks again! (That's why I tried calling them starting yesterday, but I'm sure it's the same everywhere, we all like to start those holidays as early as possible!) ;-)
