Importing pets:

  • The animals meeting all the requirements established by the “Import Regulations for Cats and Dogs” will not be subject to import quarantine. If it is suspected of being affected with a disease, either infectious or contagious zoonotic or of high risk for the Argentine Republic, the personnel of the Service will arrange the necessary means to ensure its isolation and/or the corresponding quarantine measures.
  • It would be wise that you get in touch with the authorities in the country where your pet will be coming from and inquire about their exportation procedures before arranging for the shipment of your pets.
  • For pets coming in the UK: It is suggested to legalise all the UK documentation to be submitted in Argentina, with the Apostille at the British Legalisation Office, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and translate them into Spanish.
