If you fly into Mexico more than once every six months with your dog or cat (the only animals considered to be pets), a new program can make the entry easier and faster. The program is called Programa Maskota Viajero Frecuente (Frequent Flier Pets Program), and it’s free.
The current participating airports are:
- Cancun airport (CUN)
- Guadalajara airport (GDL)
- Queretaro airport (QRO)
- Zihuatanejo airport (ZIH)
- Toluca airport (TLC)
- Mazatlan airport (MZT)
- Ciudad de México airport (AICM) – Terminals 1 & 2
At these airports, the representatives of the Oficinas de Inspección de Sanidad Agropecuaria (OISA) will only need to see the Certificate of Entry you will have received by email in advance.
Application for the program can be made at any of the above airports at the international salas. To apply, bring a health certificate issued by a veterinarian authorized by SENASICA, proof of current rabies vaccine and treatment of ecto- and endo-parasites. You will then receive a Certificate of Entry by email, good for six months.
For additional information at the Guadalajara airport, call 333-688-8175, or 333-688-8176, or 333-688-5811, or 3688-5921 between the hours of 9 and 8 on Mondays and Fridays, or between 9 and 7 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
