and more, Out and about in Puerto Vallarta

Traveling with pets from The US & Canada to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico?

The only pets that you can bring to Mexico are dogs and cats and you will have to show a recent “health certificate” with a copy (expedited by you local vet) This certificate has to include the full information of the doctor and the clinic, if applies.  This certificate must include:

1 – Full name and address of the person in charge of the pet.

2 – It has to confirm that you pet has all the current vaccinations indicating the date they were applied and the time frame that they cover.  (for puppies under 3 months you won’t need disclose this)

3 – The vet has to certify that your pet is healthy.

At your arrival and once you show the certificate the official personnel (OISA) will give you an import certificate for your pet.

If you have 1 to 3 pets then there is no charge for this certificate but if you are bringing 4 or more pets with you then you will have to pay a fee of $1,800 pesos (around $130 USD) and they will be treated as an “import” and some taxes may apply.  They will be translated to the taxing area.

You can bring some food for you per but no more than enough for the day.  It has to be in a sealed bag and showing a USDA seal.  You will find good quality food in any of the local supermarkets.

NOTE: You pet can be in a Kennel but it will have to be clean and without a bed, toys or any other accessories.  So if you want to bring some of those for your pet then make sure you carry them in you luggage.
