Peru Pet Import Rules and Requirements

Are you planning pet transport to Peru? Get started by learning about the pet import requirements as well as general tips for international pet travel. Though this process can feel overwhelming, know that thousands of pets travel safely each year and plenty of resources exist to help you on your way.

Bringing pets to Peru means visiting a USDA accredited vet (if you're starting in the United States) and making sure your dog or cat is properly microchipped and vaccinated against rabies. Experts also recommend crate training, choosing a pet friendly airline and discussing any health concerns you may have with your vet.
