The requirements for entry and documentation of animals are subject to change and may vary by destination. Volaris cannot keep up with all the requirements for traveling with animals, and assumes no responsibility for compliance with regards to this. We suggest contacting your consulate, embassy or government agency for more information to ensure that your pet will comply with all of the requirements of the destination. In case you purchased a round trip, your pet will be subject to requirements for readmission to the country of origin.
