Suriname or the U.S., for which the certificate must be issued 5 days before the boarding date and specifically state that the animal is not infected with myiasis (parasitic infection).
**In lieu of the health certificate and vaccination card. This document is accepted in countries with which Brazil has an equivalence agreement. It is the responsibility of the passenger to find out all required information from a Vigiagro office.
We do not accept proofs of vaccination from mass vaccination campaigns because this type of certificate does not include the contents of the vaccine nor a veterinarian’s stamp and signature.
Important: All of the documents presented for the animal must be originals (no photocopies).
