Pet Passport Panama
This package contains information and detailed step by step instructions on importing your dog or cat to Panama. If your pet is not traveling to Panama, then you can select the country your pet is traveling to by selecting a pet passport for another country.
Carefully following these instructions will make clearing customs easier and quicker. The instructions will also help to avoid having your pet denied entry, put into quarantine or returned to your country of origin.
Our information is constantly being updated to keep it current.
Your pet can enter Panama with proof of current rabies vaccination between 30 days and 12 months prior to transport as well as a health certificate. Included are both English and Spanish versions of the Veterinary Certificate.
You must then have the health certificate endorsed by the State USDA or CFIA Office depending whether you are transporting a dog or cat from the United States or Canada. If you are traveling from a different country, the instructions will advise you of the proper procedure. Home quarantine is expected.
With the package, you get detailed instructions, USDA endorsement instructions and FREE unlimited email support both for you and your veterinarian, should either of you have any questions.
Also included at no additional cost are the necessary forms for your pet to enter Panama.

While my cat and I have yet to leave for Panama, the information I received needed to allow him into the country seems more than complete per my research. My vet recommended Pettravel since she has had continued success with them for the travel needs of other patients. Fingers crossed!

The only other thing that would be helpful is the phone number to call the Panamanian Embassy or address to send the forms too. Otherwise a great form and presentation.
