    current vet good health certificate showing all current on vaccinations AND the certificate from the VET is only good for X amount of days. can you check with Aruba immigration or customs? when leaving aruba, another certificate is necessary, so another vet visit in aruba would be needed to leave.

    X = unknown by me. i am guessing it is 7 - 10 days.

    some airlines do not allow underseat in cabin pets. (air tran for example)

    you can also private message LIZZARDO , she used to run the Aruba Kitten Rescue group and maybe she can help you with questions

    from http://www.pettravel.com

    Pet Immigration Rules Aruba
    Aruba Pet Passport & Quarantine Information
    The information contained herein is believed to be accurate however it is essential that you confirm with the Embassy of the Country to which you are traveling.

    The pet must have a microchip. The recommended chip is the 15 digit non-encrypted microchip that meets ISO standards 11784/11785.
    The dog or cat must have resided continuously in the USA or another country with a low incidence of rabies for 6 months immediately presiding the date of travel to Aruba, or have been born and lived in the country of birth continuously until the date of travel to Aruba, or you must obtain a written exemption from the above by the Head of the Veterinary Service of Aruba.

    Pets may not enter from the countries of Southern and Central America, Cuba, Haiti, Africa, the Dominican Republic or any other country with a high incidence of rabies.

    A licensed veterinarian must complete the veterinary health certificate not more than 2 weeks prior to travel to Aruba. If the pet is traveling from the USA then USDA State Veterinarian certification is required.

    The pet must be vaccinated for rabies at least 30 days prior to travel to Aruba and not more than 12 months prior to travel.

    The veterinarian should complete this form providing all of the information requested. The veterinarian is certifying that that the pet is healthy, free of parasites and that there is no evidence of diseases communicable to humans.

    The only other thing we have to do with Max is after the VET inspection we have to take the paperwork to the Agriculture Canada office.

    http://www.inspection.gc.ca/english/anima/heasan/export/petcom/petcome.shtml

    This Canadian international health certificate available in PDF may be used to accompany pet dogs and cats to other countries. This certificate must be printed on legal paper (8.5" X 14"), no other format will be accepted.

    As far as I know this is really for bring your pet home. Although when we show it, with the Canadian Stamp, to Aruba Customs we get waved right through.
