REQUIREMENTS FOR CATS AND DOGS TO BRAZIL

2) You will need to apply for an import permit from the Department of Exports & Imports of the Central Bank Of Brazil, Rio Do Janerio. If the pet is traveling as excess baggage then they don’t require an import permit.

Upcoming changes in the Pet Travel Scheme!
From the 29th of December 2014, there will be a couple of slight changes to the Pet Travel Scheme:
There is no change to the order of preparation, or the list of countries to which the two types of scheme apply, but there are a couple of procedural updates. There is also the requirement that from 29th December any pets (cats. dogs or ferrets) MUST be over 12 weeks old when vaccianted against rabies.
The first major change is that in order to be considered as a pet, animals must arrive within (+/-) 5 days of the owner's arrival into the country, and the pet must be registered to the owner. At the moment there is no requirement to provide evidence of your arrival in relation to your pet's arrival, but this might change. You should consider this when arranging your move to the UK with your pet because if the arrivals do not coincide within the given period there will be extra charges in addition to the Pet Travel Scheme fees. At worst this would be a fee from APHA (Defra) for checking a "commercial" pet and in some cases quarantine may apply (if there are paperwork issues and the timing overruns). So please please please take care with this requirement.
There is also a change in paperwork. All pet passports issued prior to the change WILL remain valid for the pet's lifetime as long as they are completed properly, however there will be a new pet passport issued to pets in the UK when they sign up with their vet from December 29th. This includes a few changes to avoid counterfeiting and fraud, such as laminated pages and a space for the owner to sign.
"Third country" health certificates are changing too- there is a new certificate on the APHA website: https://www.gov.uk/pet-travel-information-for-pet-owners#documentation which we will upload to our own site ASAP.
As always, if in doubt, ask. Our staff are happy to help to avoid any issues on arrival. Please email the main office on firstname.lastname@example.org or call +44 1753 682244
We will add any further news or FAQs as we learn in order to try and keep everyone up-to-date :-)
