Pet Passport Argentina
REGULATIONS FOR TAKING A PET DOG OR CAT TO
Argentina does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
Your pet cat or dog must be vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days but not more than 12 months prior to entry into the country. Within 10 days of travel, A USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete the Argentina Veterinary Certificate for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, the Governing Authority of your country should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.
These certificates must be submitted to the consulate for legalization ONLY if you are importing animals for commercial purposes. Personal pets DO NOT require the consulate stamp or approval.
The airline must notify the station manager, at least 24 hours prior to arrival, at the point of entry giving notice of pets on board in order to ensure attendance of veterinary surgeon at the arrival airport. There is a $25 USD customs fee that will be added to your airway bill if you are traveling in or out of Argentina.
Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorized veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place your cat or dog in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for the pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.
All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
Many countries have a unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the International Veterinary Certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.
