I have been reading and seem to find conflicting info. My question is, how much time is the vet certificate good for before entering the country - is it 72 hours or 10 days? -Fred M.

Hi Fred,

Thanks for your inquiry. View the Pet Import Requirements to Mexico here; the vet certificate (Form 7001) should be issued within 10 days of departure.
