All animals that comply with the above requisites will not be put into quarantine.
- Consulate Stamp
Currently, it is not required to put a Consulate stamp in the certificate.
- Import Permit
No Import Permit required for dogs and cats with country of origin other than Asian or African countries. (for such countries an Import Permit is required, and some additional text has to be included in the health certificate as well). Please, check with las lunas about such countries.
Valid only for ASIAN and AFRICAN export countries
Apply for an Import Permit 10 days before planned arrival
Accompany pet with one health certificate, dated not more than 10 days before arrival
Also, accompany pet with a valid rabies vaccine, dated not less than 30 days and not more than 360 days before arrival.
In Country of Origin
In order to apply for the Import Permit, we need you to send via fax a Health Certificate, signed by a veterinarian and also stamped by the official Sanitary Authority in the country of origin. This health certificate must be dated not more than 10 days before planned arrival.
Health certificate must include the following text:
- Name & Address of owner. Breed, sex, birth date, color, size and special signs of the animal.
- Country of origin, country of destination and countries of transit, where applicable.
- Statement certifying that “there has been no cases reported of African Horse Sickness and/or Rift Valley Fever diseases for the last three years in the area of residence of the animal and in an area of 50 kilometers within it.”
- Statement certifying that “the animal has not been during that period of time in any area or region where those diseases were present”.
- Statement certifying that “the animal has been examined within 10 days prior to departure, not showing any signs of clinical disease”.
You can have it done in English and we will translate it into Spanish in Argentina.
Rabies Vaccine Certificate
You should send via fax with the Health Certificate the Rabies Vaccination Certificate. It is not a difficult paperwork, but you need to be very careful to include all the text needed. If any part of it is missing, we will not be able to process the Import Permit. Also, as important as that, is that the health certificate you issue MUST have the official stamp and signature of the Department of Agriculture of the country of origin.
What Our Customers Say
Tina- Buenos Aires to Anchorage, Alaska
Thank you and everyone else who was involved in Tina’s safe trip from Buenos Aires to Anchorage, Alaska. You were very helpful and your team was always professional and responsive. I felt comfortable knowing that you were watching out for Tina.
During her very long trip, I was very worried about her, especially during her overnight stay in Houston. One United service representative provided me a number for the Houston kennel and I was able to speak to one of the people who was scheduled to walk her and receive an update.
My very dear friends, Ray and Dyanne Brown, are thinking of traveling from Buenos Aires to Anchorage with their older dog. I have copied them with this email so they know how to contact you for information.
Regards and best wishes,
ENZO – Martin Barreiro dog from Argentina to Mexico
Cuando llegó el momento de planificar nuestra mudanza a México DF, lo primero que nos preguntamos fue “¿Cuántos trámites y dolores de cabeza implicará el traslado de Enzo, (nuestro labrador de dos años) …?” Por suerte, dimos con “LATAM”, quienes se hicieron cargo de todo el proceso. De punta a punta; desde la preparación de la documentación, pasando por conseguir la jaula de trasporte (algo no tan simple …) y terminando con el despacho de Enzo en Ezeiza.
Todo fluyó sin el menor contratiempo y siempre con la mejor predisposición por parte de “LATAM”.
Enzo y sus dueños les recomendamos ampliamente este servicio!

Courtney, Stella, and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude for the service that you guys provided in helping getting Stella from Richmond, Virignia to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since day 1, you guys have been nothing but professional and it only got better as we progressed. The contact with Mariela on the days leading up to her leaving and the day she left was nothing shy of exceptional. The contact with my wife and I during her flight and upon her arrival showed you guys are extremely passionate about what you do. I will be sharing your information with all of our friends in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We look forward to working with you all in the upcoming years to move back to the United States.

Buenos Aires, Argentina to New Jersey, USA
I used Las Lunas to transport my three year old Cocker Spaniel, Charlie, from Buenos Aires to New Jersey, USA. As most pet owners can relate to, this was an incredibly stressful time and I was really anxious about him making the trip. From the beginning LATAM Pet Transport was responsive and organized; proving helpful information and answering the multitude of questions that I had. After they picked him up to take him to the airport they sent me photos and videos during every stage in the process until he was turned over about two hours before the flight to the airline personnel. I feel like they people with LATAM Pet Transport really care about the animals and are sensitive to the stresses that owners face during such times. I would definitely recommend this company. Here is a photo of Charlie very happy in the US.
