How To Obtain a Pet Passport (Import Export or Transport Pet) In Argentina
Pets that are imported:
- You must submit an health certificate. This certificate confirms that the animal was examined prior to departure and is free of any illness that is typical for the species.
- Animals that meet all specifications set out in the Import Regulations for Cats and Dogs are not required to undergo quarantine at the point of import. If they suspect that the animal is having been affected by a disease which is contagious or infectious Zoonotic or at a significant risk to being a threat to the Argentine Republic, the personnel of the Service will determine the appropriate methods to prevent its isolation or the appropriate precautions for quarantine.
- It is recommended that you connect with authorities in the country that your pet is coming from and ask about export procedures prior to arranging the transfer of your pet.
- Pets coming into the UK it is recommended to legalize all UK documents that must be submitted to Argentina along with an Apostille in the British Legalisation Office, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and then translate the documents into Spanish.
