Bringing Pets to Guyana

If you are bringing pets to post, paperwork must be completed well in advance of their arrival. If possible, pets should arrive with their owner/s. Pets may not under any circumstances arrive prior to your arrival.

Pets brought into the country must have a valid health certificate showing rabies inoculations at least 30 days prior to arrival and must have an entry permit from the Government of Guyana. The following information must be forwarded to the relevant Guyanese authorities in order to obtain the entry permit for arriving pets: breed, age, sex and a copy of the health certificate. The owner must have the original health certificate in his or her possession on the arrival of pets in Guyana. Pets may not/not be shipped to post without first obtaining permission from the Government of Guyana.

The Government of Guyana has a 90-day quarantine period for all pets entering the country. However, the official Government of Guyana quarantine stations are usually full; for most house pets permission for home quarantine is granted on a case-by-case basis.

The quarantine cost at the Government of Guyana, Ministry of Agriculture/police kennels is $10 daily or $900 for 90 days. Cats are automatically approved for a "home" quarantine.

Some brands of pet food are available locally.
