Some ground rules are:

The total weight (animal + container) must be a maximum of 5 kg, the animal must be clean, healthy and without unpleasant odor.
In order to transport animals with Azul, two types of packaging are accepted: the rigid container or the flexible bag.The dimensions must be no greater than 43 cm long X 31.5 cm wide X 20 cm high.

Choosing the right packaging for your little buddy:

  • The rigid container must be of hard fiber or rigid plastic; The flexible bag must have internal metal rods to reinforce the frame and be made of waterproof material.
  • Packaging of other materials - such as wooden or thatched containers, or flexible bags other than waterproof material - will not be accepted for shipment of animals.
  • To ensure the comfort of the animal, the package must have internal dimensions that match the size of the animal, allowing the animal to stand and move around in a circle (360°).
  • It should also have openings that guarantee the entry and circulation of air.
  • They must have a device that prevents accidental opening, internally or externally.
  • During the flight, the pet needs the same attention and care you give on land.Therefore, the inner floor must be covered with a material that contains and absorbs urine and feces, avoiding leakage during transportation.
  • The packaging for the transport of live animals must be durable, safe, waterproof and comfortable for the animal.
  • The packaging must be provided by the customer.
  • Azul must receive the packages totally clean, disinfected and sterilized, avoiding the contagion of diseases to the own animal and to third parties. If any of the above conditions are not met, Azul may deny the shipment of the animal.

If any of the above conditions are not met, Azul may deny the boarding of the animal.

  • Vaccination card signed by the veterinarian, including the rabies vaccine with the name of the producing laboratory, the type of vaccine and the number of the ampoule.The vaccine is mandatory for animals from 03 (three) months of age and must have been applied for more than 30 days and less than 01 year in relation to the date of the flight.These limits must be adhered to at every dose of the rabies vaccine.
    NOTE: Sedation is not mandatory, check with your veterinarian for the actual need for the procedure.
  • International Veterinary Certificate (CVI) valid for 60 days from the date of issue.VIGIAGRO also created the Animal Passport, which is also an official document for the animal's travel and can be used instead of the CVI, see note below.
    NOTE: The MAPA website (Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply) there are countries that already accept the Animal Passport and it replaces the Animal Health Certificate and the CVI, speeding up the release of the animal in the destination.

IMPORTANT: It is up to the client to look for an embassy or consulate of the country where he intends to take his pet, and confirm the documentation required in this locality. Azul will not be responsible for problems regarding the acceptance of the animal in the country of destination nor for the correct completion of the certificates.
