Christoph Savannah catsGuardian Angels and World Pet Travel have been relocating pets since 1998 with proven successful results. We know well the requirements for getting your pet into and out of Costa Rica and other parts of the world. The documentation involved must be handled with expertise and precision to insure a minimal amount of time that each pet is away from their owner.

Your pet will NOT sit on a tarmac or be left unattended while in the care of World Pet Travel. All documentation is checked and tracking in place to insure your pet is monitored at all times throughout their journey.

Documentation will vary from country to country so it is important to contact a representative of World Pet Travel for the most recent country requirements of the country you are traveling to or from.

Some airlines will allow pets to be tendered as checked baggage in lieu of a suitcase when flying on the same flight as the pet. Not all airlines will allow this and certain times of the year there are no airlines that will permit pets to travel as checked baggage because of extreme temperatures. Check with your airline before making your own reservations if this is the type of travel that you plan to use for your pets.

If you are unable to fly with your pet or need to send them on their own ticket, this is called manifest cargo and will require an import permit when arriving in Costa Rica. It takes several days and documentation preparation in advance to secure a quick release for your pet upon their arrival in Costa Rica. Paperwork will vary depending upon what country you are destined for and your relocation specialist can assist you with all that you need to insure a safe arrival for your pet into the country of your choice.
