If you have a four-legged family member and you will likely have questions about bringing your pet to Mexico. Luckily, moving to Mexico with a pet isn’t particularly difficult, if you are prepared with all the necessary documentation for the Mexican Agricultural Office (SAGARPA) when you arrive at the airport.

Here is a current list of requirements for bringing a pet to Mexico:

• A current Certificate of Health from a licensed veterinarian;
• Dated proof of rabies vaccination;
• Proof that within the last 6 months, including the name of the specific product used, that your pet has been treated for parasite prevention and is free from external parasites.

In the case you arrive in Mexico and something is amiss with your documentation, SAGARPA will assist you with bringing a veterinarian to the airport to examine your pet and certify any additional requirements or information missing from the health certificate.

However, after traveling, waiting at the airport for the vet is an added inconvenience and expense, so ensuring all your furry friend’s travel documents are in order will get you to your beach condo or home as quickly as possible.

Yucatan is a very pet-friendly city, and your loyal pal will love the laid-back lifestyle just as much as the rest of the family.
