 Requirements to enter Mexico 

Origin Mexico, USA or Canada and origin USA or Canada


If you visit Mexico, upon your arrival your pet will be subject to a physical inspection to verify that there are no health risks. It is not necessary to present a Certificate of Good Health and vaccination record*


*It is the same procedure, if you enter through the border strip or on a cruise ship and you only stay for the time the boat travels.

Note:  If you do not have a Certificate of Good Health or vaccination card, you must request the services of a private Veterinary Doctor of your choice in Mexico, who must apply the corresponding treatments and issue the Certificate of Good Health.


The official personnel or Authorized Third Party Specialist (TEA) can, after assessment, certify the good state of health

Considerations During Physical Inspection

  • If ectoparasites are detected, you must contact a veterinarian of your choice, the expenses generated will be borne by you, so that they can apply a treatment.
  • If a tick is detected, the staff will send a sample to an official laboratory.
  • The Agricultural Health Inspection Offices (OISA) will protect your pet until the laboratory results are obtained to rule out that they are exotic specimens for Mexico or under the Campaign.
  • When it represents a risk, Senasica will determine the measures that must be applied. The expenses that are generated will be borne by you.
