State Department – Pet Policy

“If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.” – Mark Twain

At Executive Apartments, our goal is to make you and your pet’s stay a pleasant, trouble-free experience. We have teamed with our “Pet Friendly” communities to ensure this happens. The information provided below should answer many of your pet questions and help you prepare for your stay while attending the Foreign Service Institute.

PRIOR TO ARRIVAL

  1. Work with your veterinarian to ensure all paperwork is in order prior to shipping your pet. Advanced planning decreases the chances of last minute issues or concerns. Here is a useful PDF:  “How to Ship your Pet Overseas to the United States.”
  2. Coordinate directly with the EAI Reservation Specialist about your upcoming stay. Our personnel will work directly with you to ensure we get you and your pet(s) into an appropriate community and apartment. You can contact us or click here for a pet application form.
