UIO - Traveling to Ecuador with Animals

JetBlue does accept pets (small dogs and cats) for transportation to/from Ecuador. Service and Emotional Support dogs and cats are also accepted.

Dogs and cats may only enter Ecuador from any country if they are fully compliant with the import requirements:

  • Your pet cat or dog must have a current rabies vaccination. If this is the first time your dog or cat    is being vaccinated for rabies, it must wait for at least 21 days after the vaccination before entering Ecuador. The vaccination must not have been administered more than 12 months prior to entry into the country.
  • Dogs should be vaccinated against Distemper, Canine Hepatitis, Parainfluenza,  Leptospirosis and Parvovirus
  • A USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must complete the Veterinary Certificate for Ecuador within 10 days of travel for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are not traveling from either of these countries, the Governing Authority of your country responsible for the import and export of animals should endorse the forms.
  • Ticks & Tapeworm test must be administered within 21 days prior to travel.
  • Calling the Ecuadorian Agency of Quality Assurance in Agriculture 72 hours in advance of arrival is recommended so there will be a veterinarian available at the time of clearance.

Dogs and cats may only enter Ecuador, from any country, if they are fully compliant with the import requirements.

Note: Failure to comply with any of the requirements may result in refusal of entry of the pet into Ecuador.
