Pet Travel Question: Shipping Pets to Costa Rica
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Mixed Breed
From: Hawaii, USA
To: Costa Rica
I am working on completing my dog's complete series of vaccinations. Should I obtain the Pet Immigration Form from the MAG in Costa Rica within a month from departure, or can I obtain that now (we are leaving in about 6-8 months)? Does it need to be notarized? Besides the vaccinations, the Pet Immigration Form, and the International Health certificate, what other forms do I need and how do I pay for all the taxes stated on your website?
Thanks for contacting us. The Pet Immigration form is good for a month from the time it's issued, and you will need to have a few documents endorsed by the USDA.
Take a look at the pet import requirements for Costa Rica for a full list of the requirements, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions or if you'd like some help with your move. Good luck!
