Can I Bring My Pet to Costa Rica?

Yes, it is possible to bring your pet to Costa Rica. However, pets entering Costa Rica must have a health certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian stating that the animal is disease-free.

The examination of the pet and the final certification must be conducted 30 days prior to traveling to Costa Rica. Your veterinarian should be familiar with this documentation, so feel free to ask them about it.

The required vaccinations for pets are hepatitis, leptospirosis, distemper, parvovirus, and rabies for animals who are four months or older.
