Traveling with Pet out of State Requires Documents Issued by Mapa


To travel with your pet outside the country, it is necessary to issue an International Veterinary Certificate (CVI), which guarantees its safety, as well as compliance with the sanitary measures of the country of destination. Each country has different legislation for the reception of animals in its territory. This is because animals can carry diseases, including zoonotic diseases that are already controlled or even eradicated in a particular location.

A CVI must be issued for each flight the animal makes. The document was issued by the federal agricultural tax controllers of the International Agricultural Control Units (Vigiagro), attached to the Secretariat of Agricultural Defense of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA).

For travel within Brazil, by plane, car or other means of transport, the owner must have the animal’s vaccination card at hand, certifying anti-rabies vaccination and a health certificate issued by the veterinarian registered with the Regional Council of State Veterinary. If the certificate indicates that the anti-rabies vaccination is recent, the certificate is sufficient.

CVI online

A CVI may be issued electronically for some destination countries. The last day for the issuance of the document is 72 hours if the attached documents are valid and the application form has been completed.

The following destinations are already eligible to issue an electronic certificate: Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, the United States, Japan, Mexico, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Switzerland and Norway, as well as the countries of the European Union.
