What is the *current* status on bringing a dog into Mexico.


Recommended Posts

I have a friend looking to come here. She is disabled using a wheelchair/walker, etc. and has a small service dog, not an "Emotional Support dog).

I'm going to guess that the customs person will tell her she needs this and that (She will get a Vet's health certificate showing vaccinations, etc.), and the dog must have an X days quarantine or some other bovine excrement and she must pay X USD, and she can pay it directly to him, etc.

Input appreciated.

As of 2019 a health certificate is not required... A current rabis certificate is required. Having crossed the border by vehicle with 2 dogs numerous times, we have never been asked for any paperwork...

Flying in is another matter... Best have your friend check on the web for official info...

That is good news about eliminating a health certificate, since it was a farce . When I drove down, I had to stop in Mission, TX to get one from a vet since at that time they required a valid health certificate within 72 hours of entry.  I was stopped at 3 Federale checkpoints.   I offered each time to show the health the certificate.  IT was never looked at. 

All the cared about was seeing the car permit (the TIP) each time and checked it against my VIN.

I flew recently on Alaska Airlines with wheelchair and service dog. Alaska air requested a Department of Transport certificate for the dog which I easily acquired online. She rode with me in the aircraft. Not once did anyone request her health certificate nor vaccination schedule but I had them ready.

What is required at the Guadalajara airport upon entering the Customs area? I had read that the certificate is no longer required, only a rabies vaccination record.
