The International Veterinary Certificate issued by Senasa at the “Lazareto Capital” Quarantine Station according to this Procedure, uses a model that only allows details of one animal per certificate.

Likewise, the Health Certificate issued by the Private Veterinarian can only be for one animal.
The sanitary requirements detailed in this Procedure for issuing an International Veterinary Certificate for cats and dogs with destination the Republic of Peru are based on the regulations in force in that country.

The validity before Senasa of the International Veterinary Certificate to accompany and vouch for cats and dogs shipped to the Republic of Peru is ten (10) days from the date on which the Health Certificate is issued by the Private Veterinarian.

This detailed Procedure is in force for the issue of an International Veterinary Certificate to accompany and vouch for cats and dogs dispatched temporarily or permanently to Peru.

If the exit of the animal is temporary, said certificate will continue to be valid for the animal to reenter the Republic of Argentina for a period of thirty (30) days subsequent to its date of issue, if it is accompanied by a Sanitary Certificate issued by an Official Veterinarian of the Republic of Peru that certifies that the animal is in a satisfactory state of health and is fit to travel, Said Health Certificate may be issued at the point of exit of the Republic of Peru.

When this temporary exit had as its destination a place where animals of the species were concentrated (e.g. an international show) the Health Certificate must also state that, furthermore, in said location there were no animals with notifiable diseases.

When the animal dispatched to the Republic of Peru is going to stopover in a third country before the country of destination, this must be mentioned in the corresponding place in the form.
The Republic of Peru does not require that the Senasa International Veterinary Certificate be legalized or otherwise legally processed before the animal leaves the Republic of Argentina.

The interested parties in the interior of the country who find it expensive and impractical to come in to the “Lazareto Capital” Quarantine Station can consult the feasibility of carrying out the necessary procedures at the Local Senasa Office in their region.

The Private Veterinarian and/or the transport company must be consulted on the conditions and devices necessary for transporting the animal.
