Bringing Pets to Guatemala

US airlines have instituted restrictions on carrying pets during the summer months. Regardless of the time of year, travellers should check and re-check with the particular airlines to be sure they will be allowed to board with their pets. This is especially important during the summer embargo months.

All incoming pets must have a proof of rabies inoculation and a health certificate issued by a veterinarian within 15 days of travel. The health certificate should be prepared by a licensed veterinarian and if possible, certified by the Department of Agriculture or equivalent agency in the country of origin. This process can take several days, so the certificate should be issued no later than one week prior to departure.

There are no quarantine requirements for dogs or cats in Guatemala. It is preferential to bring your pet with you on the same flight, as customs formalities are easier to complete when pets are accompanied.
