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.

Inspection: 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 or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.

Other Animals: Birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, 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 the country of destination.

Veterinary Certificate: All countries have unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the veterinary certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.

Pet Microchip: Although Peru does not require a pet microchip, we strongly recommend that you microchip your cat or dog prior to traveling.

There should be no quarantine period as long as your pet is vaccinated at least 30 days prior to entry and has a veterinary health certificate.

Hello Amaya - there is no quarantine period for pets entering Peru when they have met the entry requirements. We don't recommend airlines unless it is route specific. (one airlines flies a better route than another.) What cities are you leaving from and arriving to?
