    Here is some information - obviously in Spanish

    You need to bring all the required documentation and I think you need prior approval. I know not that long ago importation of birds was banned.

    Yes, the category of the kinds of Emotional Support Animals is a very broad. It does not have to be a dog or a cat. Maybe you are confusing "Service Animals" which are usually dogs. Thanks.

    In the other thread on this topic I posted how I gave up. Way too frustrating and expensive. To import a living animal, other than dogs/cats, one needs to apply and pay for an importation permit. The animal needs vet certificates from the country of origin, cannot be on an endangered species list, will undergo mandatory vet checks here, a period of quarantine and an inspection of where the animal is to be housed. Foreign species are not permitted in captivity where there is a significant risk that they can escape into the environment. The importation of birds, fish, amphibians, reptiles and exotic insects are all but banned unless for research purposes or for display in a zoo.

    Once here, a renewable license to keep these animals comes into play and there are steep fines should these animals somehow go missing. In the event of death, a vet from the environment ministry needs to certify such for the cancellation of the license or it is assumed that the animal is now loose on the island.

    Too much hassle for me to justify an automatic weed eating tortoise.
