New NASW Practice Alert: New Travel Guidelines for Emotional Support Animals


As of January 2021, emotional support animals (ESAs) are no longer recognized as service animals and are prohibited from flying with their owners under the United States Department of Transportation’s Air Carrier Access Act. Clinical social workers should be aware of the changes especially when receiving requests to provide supportive documentation to patients wishing to travel with their emotional support animal.
