I'm going to Brazil for vacation for five weeks. I know that to depart from the US I have to have the rabies vaccination and the International Health Certificate endorsed by the USDA, however, I want to double check what I need to return to the US (rabies, health certificate, etc.).

Thank You,



Hi Mariana,

Thanks for the inquiry. For your information, here are the pet import requirements for Brazil as well as the pet import requirements for the United States. Yes, to return to the US you'll need to make sure you have proof of vaccines, and another health certificate will need to be secured.

Please let us know if you have any questions after reviewing this information. Good luck!
