FAQ - Can I bring my Pet to Belize?

Posted by David Kafka on 01/06/2015 02:29 PM

Yes. The following are the requirements:

  • A valid import permit must be submitted to the BAHA (Belize Agricultural Health Authority) office.

Other documents accompanying the application are:

  • A recent Veterinary health certificate, no older than 14 days.
  • A recent Rabies certificate (not less than a month and not more than a year since last checked)

Any Animal arriving at a port of entry into Belize without a valid permit and any dog or cat without a valid rabies vaccination will be placed in confinement until its rabies vaccination is valid (any cost associated with this will be charged to the owner/importer.)

Dogs and cats coming from countries considered of risk, will need to undergo veterinary inspection at the port of entry. There is an additional fee for veterinary inspection.

Two days before entering the country, the Director of Animal Health must be notified to meet u at the port of entry to inspect the animal. Note: Inspection of live animals are only done from 9am-4pm.
