It is the exporter's responsibility to ensure that the animal meets the importing country requirements.
An import permit is required.
Information about the process required to import animals into the Republic of Panama can be found at the
Department of Zoonosis Control website.
Some authorities may not recognise or accept a foreign document until it is legalised. The Health Certificate for the importation of cats, dogs and ferrets into the Republic of Panama must be legalised by an Apostille of the Australian Government or authenticated by the Panamanian Consulate in Australia.
Refer to the
Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Smartraveller website for more information about how to have your Australian documents legalised for use overseas.
The importing country may have specific transport requirements and you should check this.
If your animal is returning to Australia, you should make yourself familiar with the
Department’s requirements for importing live animals into Australia. This is important as your animal may have been exposed to diseases that do not occur in Australia.
