Relocating Pets to Guyana
Guyana, a country on South America’s North Atlantic coast, is defined by its dense rainforest. Guyana is a beautiful tropical paradise. It has stunning waterfalls, virgin rainforest and vast river systems that combine to create a very exciting destination for adventures, travel and exploration.
Guyana is also a pet-friendly destination to travel to. While relocating with pets, it is important to keep the following things in mind-
- The first step is to microchip your pet with a 15-digit ISO-compliant pet microchip.
- While a rabies titer test is not required to enter Guyana from any country, your pet must be vaccinated for rabies between 30 days and 12 months prior to entering the country.
- A licensed veterinarian should complete a Veterinary Certificate for Guyana shortly prior to travel.
- An Import license must be obtained from the Ministry of Agriculture to enter the country.
- At the time of the permit application, it will be determined whether a quarantine is required or not. It is important to contact Guyana Livestock Development Authority to check about the availability of space.
- Pets must enter Guyana via Cheddi Jagan International Airport in Timehri.
- Pets can arrive in the cabin, as checked baggage or as air cargo.
- Upon arrival in Guyana you will present the documents and the Veterinary officer stationed at the entrance port will stamp them.
- All pets must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the entry airport.
- Guyana does not publish a list of banned breeds.
