Hi PetRelocation,

I am considering taking my dog with me to Peru for a year or so. Does Peru require quarantine?




Hi Eileen,

Thanks for your question! There is currently no quarantine required for pets traveling into Peru from the United States. Please take a look at this overview of the import requirements via the USDA for more specific information about what you'll need to do.

In addition to securing a health certificate and proof of an updated rabies vaccines (you'll find more details in the above links), you'll also want to book a flight with a pet friendly airline and make sure you have an airline-approved travel crate. When you return to the United States, you'll need to follow these pet import requirements in order to be accepted back into the country (these are pretty comparable rules and there is no quarantine here, either).

Hopefully this helps to start you on your way, Eileen. Please let us know if you're interested in finding out about our door-to-door services, and either way, good luck with everything.
