Airport of Arrival
Pets arriving in Mexico typically touch down at Cancun Airport (CUN). Pets may arrive in-cabin, as checked baggage, or as manifested cargo.
All pets arriving in Malaysia must be microchipped. Malaysia uses the same ISO 11784/11785 pet microchips as India. You need to do so before or while getting your pet vaccinated against rabies. If the procedure is not followed, entry to the country is denied and you will have to get your pet vaccinated again.
Your pet’s vaccination record must reflect the following: pet’s date of birth microchip number, date it was put in or read, and where it is on your pet’s body vaccination date, vaccine manufacturer and product name with sticker, vaccine batch number, date the vaccination & valid until, the vet’s signature and contact details.
Basic Vaccinations for your pet are as follows:
For dogs: Canine Parvovirus, Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Rabies, Leptospirosis.
For cats: Panleukopenia, Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, Rabies, Feline Leukemia.
Rabies Vaccination Certificate & Titer Test
Post their rabies vaccination, the pet must have a blood sample taken at least 30 days after the rabies vaccination, send the blood sample to an EU/ OIE approved blood testing laboratory. The results of the blood test must show that the vaccination was successful (rabies antibody level of at least 0.5 IU/ml).
An international health certificate is required for a pet to enter Mexico. Their pet passport (i.e., their vaccination record) must be filled, signed, and stamped by an authorized veterinarian. Ensure to carry copies of the same.
