Regulations for taking a pet dog or cat to Aruba from a rabies free country or a country with a low incidence of rabies:

To enter Aruba, your dog or cat must have resided continuously in a rabies free country or another country with a low incidence of rabies for 6 months immediately preceeding the date of travel, or was born and lived in the country of birth continuously until the date of travel to Aruba. If this is not the case, you must obtain a written exemption from this requirement by the Head of the Veterinary Service of Aruba.

Pets may not enter Aruba from any country with a high incidence of rabies.

Here are the requirements:

This completes a passport for your dog or cat to enter Aruba.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet will be refused entry or returned to the country of origin or placed in quarantine, all at the expense of the person responsible for your pet.

Inspection: All domestic dogs and cats must be free of evidence of disease communicable to humans when examined at the port of entry to Aruba. If your dog or cat is not in apparent good health, further examination by a licensed veterinarian may be required at your expense.

Other Animals: Birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits are not subject to requirements of rabies vaccination, but may have to meet other requirements and should have a health certificate to enter Aruba. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.

If your pet is not a dog, cat or ferret, and especially if it is a turtle or parrot, you should verify that it is not protected under Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITIES).  You will need to apply for additional permits if this is the case. Search their database. Over 180 countries participate and enforce CITIES regulations. Read more about CITIES.

Veterinary Certificate: All countries have unique veterinary certificates. This form may differ from the veterinary certificate issued by veterinarians in the United States. (APHIS 7001) It is an essential part of the cat or dog passport.
