EECVI Update: California Joins Program

California Now Accepts EECVI

As of January 2020, the state of California accepts Extended Equine Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (EECVIs).

Extended Equine Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (EECVIs) provides equine practitioners and owners with an easy solution for compliant travel with horses in multiple states. EECVIs function the same as regular health certificates, but allow horse owners to move for up to six months.

Through the GVL software platform, veterinarians can create an EECVI online, submit it to their state animal health official digitally and provide owners with online access to retrieve their travel permits anytime.

If you have questions about your state participating, please contact your state animal health official. Contact information for each state may be found on GVL’s animal health regulations contact page.
