Bringing Pets to Nicaragua

Pets must have a certificate of rabies vaccine, health certificate and certificate of origin (pet shop receipt, veterinarian's proof of origin, etc). The health certificate must be certified by the Nicaraguan Embassy or Consulate before departing for Managua.

Pet owners should send the following information to the relevant authorities in Nicaragua, in advance of arrival:

•pet's species;




•weight (in pounds);

•sex; and

•height (in inches).

Upon your arrival in Nicaragua, customs agents will request to see the letter from the vet with its notary seal and the authentication seal or document that the Nicaraguan consulate provides you. You will be charged $10 per animal. Bear in mind that airlines require you to have the veterinarian provide this letter within 10 days of your flight, which requires you to deal with the Nicaraguan consulate within that time frame.

Nicaragua does not impose a quarantine on imported mammals (provided they are arriving from the same continent – Europeans will have it different) but might impose quarantine on your bird with the mostly valid pretext that it needs to guard against avian flu.
