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. There is no quarantine required.
