Bringing Pets to Venezuela

Venezuela does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:

• your pet must be vaccinated for rabies and other diseases between 30 days and 12 months prior to entry;

• shortly prior to travel, a USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must complete the Venezuelan Veterinary Certificate for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA, if travelling from the United States or Canada;

• if you are not travelling from either of the above countries, the relevant authority of your country responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms;

• the health certificate should be made out in duplicate and both copies signed by the veterinarian and endorsed by the Venezuelan consulate – it will be good for 30 days after it is issued by your veterinarian;

• a copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included for endorsement.

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Venezuela, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of your pet.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet will be refused entry or returned to the country of origin or placed in quarantine, all at the expense of the person responsible for your pet.

All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Venezuela. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.

Birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibian, mammals such as rodents and rabbits are not subject to requirements of rabies vaccination, but may have to meet other requirements and should have a health certificate to enter Venezuela. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of Venezuela.
