Importation of household pets into Chile is permitted. To import a dog or cat, the owner must have a rabies certificate that is not less than one month old but not more than twelve months old prior to shipment, as well as a health certificate issued by a veterinarian. The certificate must be officially certified by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Services (APHIS). Rabies and health certificates must be presented to the Chilean Animal Health Department upon entry into Chile. Just prior to travelling to Chile, your pet must have a Ticks & Tapeworm Test. There is no quarantine required.
Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet will be refused entry or returned to the country of origin or placed in quarantine, all at the expense of the person responsible for your pet.
All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Chile. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.
Birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibian, mammals such as rodents and rabbits are not subject to requirements of rabies vaccination, but may have to meet other requirements and should have a health certificate to enter Chile. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of Chile.
