Panama's Pet Relocation Home Quarantine Process
The Pet Relocation Home Quarantine process is a way that you can bring a pet into the Country of Panama without having to put your pet in a quarantine kennel. With the right certificates and coordination with Panamanian officials you can process and take your pet to your new home shortly after arrival. This is called the Pet Relocation Home Quarantine Process. Bringing a pet to Panama to live with you is not complicated, but it requires knowing and following the procedures. It is important that you understand the process and follow the rules. The Government requires strict adherence to the rules. Here is a list of the requirements. We can help you with all of this.
  1. The pet must have a current up-to-date Health Certificate dated no more than 10 days prior to arrival in Panama. It has to be signed by the Veterinarian on the right side and the USDA stamp with signature on the left side of the document. Just having the Veterinarian sign it is not enough.
