If you’re planning to travel to Chile with your furry friend, at BaggagePets, we put our accumulated experience since 2011 at your service to offer you the best route options for pet transportation to Chile from Spain, with the main airlines and all guarantees.
As is often the case with most pet transports to Latin America, the options for travelling with our furry companions are much more limited than what we have as passengers. In the case of a trip from Spain, we can only arrive at Santiago de Chile as an authorized airport.
Fortunately, over the years, BaggagePets has built a network of expert agents in Chile that allows us to make all kinds of internal connections, reaching many more points across the country.
Veterinary Requirements for Animal Transport to Chile
Similar to most destinations, the health requirements for travelling with animals to Chile from Spain are simple but strictly enforced. That’s why it’s crucial not to make mistakes when filling them out.
The Agriculture and Livestock Service (SAG) accepts the European Pet Passport for entry into the country. This passport must be correctly issued and indicate the microchip number, up-to-date rabies vaccination, relevant external and internal deworming, and confirm that the pet is in perfect health.
Just like in any trip abroad, this documentation must be presented to the Spanish government veterinarians for approval before the pet’s departure.
Regarding the customs processes upon arrival of our pet in Chile, it’s important to note that the Chilean government doesn’t require hiring a specialized agent to carry out the entire process.
We’ve mentioned this many times, and despite thinking about saving money, at BaggagePets, we always recommend hiring the services of a specialized agent since the process is complicated, and in many cases, advanced knowledge of the subject is necessary to correctly complete all documents. Any error, no matter how small, can lead to delays and issues that will prevent your pet from checking out as quickly as possible.
We’ve encountered cases where customers, during international pet transfers, haven’t sought help from specialized agents in preparing the trip and documentation, leading to mistakes that, although they might not seem significant, later result in serious bureaucratic problems that prevent the animal from being cleared through customs due to a poorly signed paper, an incorrectly placed or expired date, a missing stamp on a veterinary document, etc.
For this reason, at BaggagePets, we make every effort to take your pet to Chile with all guarantees and ensure that the experience is as pleasant as possible for both you and your furry companion.
