Bringing Your Pet Guide
It is fairly easy to bring your pets with you to Argentina at this time.
The requirements are:
- Full information on the owner, including first and last name, country of origin or departure, countries in transit (if any), and address (there is no standard form, you just need to have this information ready);
- All information on the pet, including breed and sex, date of birth, size and weight, color, and any defining markings (again, just have this information readily available);
- For any animals over 3 months old, a valid rabies vaccination (for animals under 3 months old, if they are coming from a country without rabies or where the vaccination is prohibited, this must be stated in writing on the certificate issued by the official sanitary authority of the country of origin), issued by your vet;
- A zoo sanitary certificate issued by the official sanitary authority of the country of origin stating that prior to departure, the animal: had no signs of infectious-contagious diseases, parasitic diseases, or any other diseases characteristic of the species, which is issued by your vet.
Bring this information with you when you come to Argentina, and you will take care of the animal’s entrance upon arrival. Nothing needs to be sent beforehand. If the animal meets all of the above mentioned criteria, there is no quarantine period. Continue to check the National Office of Animal Sanitation (SENASA) for any changes in legislation or updated information.
