Things To Know Before You Go

Rio de Janeiro​ is known as the ​Cidade Maravilhosa​, the Marvelous City, and for a very good reason. There are plenty of beaches and samba that Brazil offers for both humans and pets. Traveling to this country is fairly simple, cats and dogs that enter Brazil require an International Veterinary Care Certificate that meet Brazilian Sanitary requirements.

If you want to move to Brazil with your beloved furry friends, you may wonder about the requirements. 


Brazil requires all dogs and cats being imported into the country to be microchipped. The microchip should comply with ISO 11784/11785 standards. Ensuring the microchip is registered with accurate owner information is crucial for a smooth entry into Brazil.

Vaccinations & health certificates

Before your pet can embark on the journey to Brazil, certain vaccinations and health certificates are mandatory. Dogs should be up-to-date on vaccinations against rabies, distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and leptospirosis. Cats require vaccinations against rabies and feline viral rhinotracheitis.

Blood Tests

Some pets, particularly dogs, may require blood tests to confirm their antibody levels for rabies. These tests should be conducted well in advance, and only pets with satisfactory results are eligible for importation.


Securing an import permit is a vital step in the pet relocation process to Brazil. This permit is issued by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, and Supply (MAPA). Initiating the application well in advance is recommended.


Brazil does not have a mandatory quarantine period for pets arriving from most countries. However, specific regulations may vary, and it’s crucial to check the requirements based on the country of origin.

Approved Travel Crates

Choosing the right travel crate is essential for your pet’s comfort and safety. The crate should adhere to international standards and provide adequate space for your pet to stand, turn around, and lie down comfortably.

Dog Shipping to BRAZIL

When it comes to shipping a dog to Brazil from the USA, Airpets International ensures a seamless process. Their expertise in international pet shipping guarantees a stress-free experience for both you and your canine companion.

Cat Shipping to BRAZIL

Securing an import permit and ensuring precise documentation are vital when transporting your cat to Brazil. Approved crates are mandatory for cat travel, with a preference for direct flights.

Hands down the best company we used in a move from the US to Spain. Best care, greatest attention to detail, and a very happily delivered dog. Definitely recommend; Dakota was incredible in her attention to detail, care, and communication. You’re in good hands with her.

We had a particularly challenging, short notice posting from DC to Italy. Commercial airlines did not accept the oversized crate. The Airpets America Team is very responsive and the international carriers used are exceptional. At no time were we concerned for the health of our pup. The Team also recommended the specific crate to meet airline requirements and reviewed the international health paperwork with our Vet. We recommend Airports American to anyone traveling overseas!

Miranda was absolutely amazing and helped us get our two basset hounds to Germany a month after we moved there with the Army. She answered every question my family had and made this process so much easier on all of us. I would definitely recommend her!

After receiving different quotes and different information from other companies, it took me only one call to Airpets to make me feel comfortable and trust them with the relocation of my Husky from Dallas to Frankfurt. Monty and Courtney were very helpful, very responsive and were able to answer all my questions. Without doubt, I will choose Airpets for my next move. Highly recommended.

Airpets America was the cheapest company to help relocate my animals. I shopped through a lot of pet relocation services. Brent from Airpets America responded the quickest and got the ball moving quickly. Airpets America was very flexible about last-minute/fast relocating when it came to my specific needs. Loved John the driver who drove both my cats from Dallas Texas to Vermont. He picked up Thursday afternoon and delivered my pets to the door Saturday morning.
