I am interested in relocating my pet (8-month-old Labrador Retriever, weighing about 25 kgs) from India to Costa Rica. Could you give me details on the paperwork required, other procedures required, quarantine details, best flight plans, etc. for such a relocation?


Hi Elizabeth,

Thank you for your question! Here is some information about importing your dog to Costa Rica from our site, and here's another helpful source. You'll need to secure a few documents, including an Import Permit and Rabies Vaccination Certificate, and we always recommend choosing a pet-friendly airline.
