Dog Travel to Costa Rica

Dear PetRelocation,

What forms/certificates do I need to get my dog to Costa Rica?

Thank you,



Hi Maxi,

Thanks for contacting us. Take a look at the pet import requirements for Costa Rica as outlined by the USDA. Among other things, you'll need to have your dog vaccinated against rabies and you'll need to fill out the APHIS 7001.

We recommend flying with a pet friendly airline and working with your dog beforehand to make sure he/she is comfortable in the travel crate. You can find lots of general information and answers to frequently asked pet travel questions on our blog, and if you have more questions or would like to receive an estimate for our services, you can fill out our consultation form.

Hope this helps! We look forward to hearing from you, and good luck with everything.
