The kennel must have enough room for the animal to turn around completely, be made of strong material, smooth and leak resistant. The container must clearly display the passenger's name, address and phone number.
If the animal and the container together weigh more than 30 kg (66 lbs), it must be transported as cargo. In that case, the trip will be handled by Gollog, GOL's cargo service.
For GOL to transport animals as checked luggage, a R$90 (US$40) fee is charged plus the weight of the kennel and the animal multiplied by the amount corresponding to 1% of the full fare of the segment flown. It is important to keep in mind that the dimensions of the animal transportation container cannot exceed 86 cm x 122 cm x 135 cm (34 in x 48 in x 53 in).
Can I travel with a guide dog?

The passenger will need to present an International Animal Health Cerfiticate (Certificado Zoossanitario Internacional, or CZI) issued by the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture's International Agriculture Surveillance (Vigilancia Agropecuaria Internacional) unit, as per the requirements of the destination country.
