Pet Carriers and Travel Arrangements

How to bring your pet safely and comfortably into Brazil...

Many of the major airlines serving Brazil cater for cats and dogs. Each has its own restrictions and requirements. It should be remembered that long-haul flights can be extremely traumatic for animals.

Depending on the type and size of animal and the airline used, the pet may be able to travel in the cabin or in the hold. The animal must travel in an approved container, which must be big enough for the animal to stand, sit and turn during the journey. The container must allow adequate ventilation. If the journey is longer than a few hours, food and drink may need to be supplied. Consult the appropriate airline or carrier for details.

On arrival in Brazil, the passenger passes through immigration control in the usual way and then proceeds to the luggage collection area, where any animal travelling as cargo can be collected. Then proceed to the veterinary station near luggage collection, where a vet examines the pet and approves and stamps the documents. A vet may not be necessary or available for this examination and another official may process the paperwork.

Travelling with Pets on Coaches within Brazil

Small domestic pets may only travel on coaches in Brazil if the following documents are presented:

  • Valid vaccination certificate
  • Recent health certificate from a veterinarian

A container any larger than 20cm wide, 25cm high and 40cm long is not permitted.
