Relocating Pets to Bolivia
Bolivia is a country in central South America, with a varied terrain spanning Andes Mountains, the Atacama Desert and Amazon Basin rainforest. Bolivia has the highest salt flats, lake, administrative capital city, golf course, Irish pub, road, and cable car in the world.

- Other vaccinations include, for dogs: Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, and Parovirus.
- For cats: Feline Vioral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia.
- An import permit is not mandatory for entering Bolivia.
- A licensed veterinarian must also complete the health certificate for Bolivia prior to travel. The health certificate must also be endorsed by the Bolivian Consulate.
- The health certificate must also be translated into Spanish.
