International Animal Export Regulations



If you have any questions or concerns regarding these regulations for exporting animals or animal products to a foreign country, you should contact the APHIS-VS Area Office in the State from which the animals or products will be exported.

Paraguay - Summary of Requirements

Paraguay requires that any exportation of animals, embryos, semen, and poultry chicks and hatching eggs must be accompanied by a health certificate legalized by a Paraguayan consulate in the United States. The exporter must consult with the consulate in case of any additional requirement. Information about the Paraguayan consulates can be found at: http://www.embaparusa.gov.py/consulado.html




  • Hatching Eggs - (health certificate 1 day old chicks) December 2005 (pdf 130kb)

For species not listed, the requirements are not known. However, exporters wanting to ship livestock or germplasm whose requirements are not listed in the IREGS, should have the interested party (importer/buyer) in the country of destination apply for an Import Permit at the appropriate ministry. This Import Permit will most likely outline the specific requirements.
