Colombia pet entry regulations state that the country does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements:
To enter Colombia with a pet, your cat or dog must be vaccinated for rabies at least 1 month but not more than 12 months prior to entry into the country. Rabies vaccination is not required for pets entering from a rabies free country or dogs and cats that are less than 4 months old. Pets must be vaccinated for Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis and parVovirus.
Within 14 days of travel, a USDA (or CFIA) accredited veterinarian must then complete the Colombia Veterinary Certificate for endorsement by the USDA or CFIA if traveling from the United States or Canada. If you are traveling from another country, the Governmental Authority of your country should endorse the forms. A copy of the Rabies Certificate should also be included.
It is highly recommended that your pet be on a flea and tick prevention program prior to entering Colombia.
No Import Permit is required for personal pets accompanied by their owners. Animals imported in commercial lot numbers must first obtain an import permit.

Failure to comply with these regulations will mean that your pet may be refused entry and the relevant authority in consultation with an authorized veterinarian can decide to return the pet home, or place the pet in quarantine at the expense of the owner or natural person responsible for pet, or as a last resort, without financial compensation, put the pet down where the return trip home or quarantine cannot be arranged.
All other pets (birds, invertebrates, tropical fish, reptiles, amphibia, mammals such as rodents and rabbits) are not subject to the regulations in respect of the anti-rabies vaccination but may have to meet other requirements as to a limit on the number of animals and a certificate to accompany them in respect of other diseases. Pet owners are strongly advised to seek further information from the relevant authority of their country and/or that of the country of destination.
