Bringing Pets to Peru

If travelling from countries with a low incidence of rabies, the requirements for taking a pet dog/cat to Peru are:
• your pet will need an Import Permit to enter the country (non-vaccinated pets only);
• your pet must be vaccinated for rabies between 30 days and 12 months prior to travel;
• shortly before travelling, a USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete a Veterinary Certificate for Peru for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if travelling from the United States or Canada;
• if you are not travelling from either of the countries above, the relevant authority of your country responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms;
• a copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included for endorsement;
• a ticks and tapeworm examination should be performed by your veterinarian shortly prior to travel and should be included with the Veterinary Certificate for endorsement.

Upon arrival at the Lima airport you must proceed to the SENASA office and pay a small fee for their pet certificate in the Lima airport.

Whenever you travel to a foreign country like Peru, it is always advisable to carry some form of identification indicating ownership of the 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 Peru. If your dog/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 Peru. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of Peru.
