How long are Coggins papers valid?

In general, Coggins papers are valid for up to one year; however, some states or shows may require a negative Coggins test within six months of the event or transportation.

In addition to Coggins papers, a CVI (Certificate of Veterinary Inspection), or horse health certificate is also required when transporting horses. GlobalVetLink provides a seamless digital solution for the Extended Equine Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (EECVI) program, making it easier for veterinarians and horse owners to travel in compliance.
