Pet Import Regulations in Peru



If you are moving to Peru with your pet, you must prepare them. Pet relocation to Peru requires the owner to have his pets microchipped, which is the only acceptable form of animal identification in the country. The chip must be compliant with ISO Standard 11784 or Annex A to ISO standard 11785. If the chip is unavailable, the owner may also send his pet to Peru but the animal must come with its own scanner attached to its crate.

When relocating pets to Peru, all animals need to have full vaccinations. For dogs, vaccines should provide protection against parvo, rabies, hepatitis, leptospirosis and distemper and must be administered one to twelve months prior to the pet's arrival. For cats and other felines, calicivirus, feline viral rhinotracheitis, panleukopenia (FVRCP), and rabies vaccinations are advised. A Health Certificate should also be issued by a government-licensed local veterinarian and must bear complete information regarding vaccines given and the name and license number of the animal doctor who issued the certificate.

These vaccination requirements may be processed by providers of pet relocation service to Peru. Those who don't want to go through the tedious pet transport process of preparing necessary documents for international pet relocation to Peru can always find professional help from the various companies that offer the service.
