Exporting Pets from Brazil to Thailand
Brazilian and International airlines require that you get an International Zoosanitary Certificate (CZI – Certificado Zoosanitário Internacional) before you can be allowed to travel with your pet.
STEP 1: Make your flight reservations and confirm with the airline(s) that you’ll be travelling with a pet (regulations differ from airline to airline).
STEP 2: Update your pet’s shots.
STEP 3: Contact the Quarantine Office at the Bangkok International Airport (Suvarnabhumi Airport) via e-mail: email@example.com informing age, breed, sex, color, etc. of your pet as well as full name of the owner that will bring the pet to Thailand in order to obtain a permit to be used as a supporting document to request for a zoosanitary certificate (CZI) from Brazilian authority. The permit is released/issued in 72 hours after requested.
STEP 4: Within two weeks of travel, visit veterinarian to obtain Health Certificate (remember to take the vaccination card with you). The Health Certificate is valid for three days from the date of its issuance.
STEP 5: Within three days of issuance of Veterinarian’s Health Certificate, visit the Brazilian airport to get a zoosanitary certificate (CZI) from the International Agriculture and Animal Unit (VIGIAGRO – Vigilância Agropecuária Internacional). The CZI is valid for ten days from the date of issuance and it will be required by the airline.
STEP 6: Provide the CZI when you check in at the airport for your flight (we encourage you to also hand-carry the Veterinarian Health Certificate and the Vaccination Card).
