Not in my recent experience coming into Gdl a week ago Monday...Each pet was still physically inspected after they asked for proof of rabies, de-worming, antiparasitic etc, they just do not require the previous AHPHS 7001 or vet-derived health "certificate"....you still have to have proof of those requirements.  I called and spoke to Sagarpa myself before I headed out and this is what they told me and, shore 'nuff, the process at the airport in Guadalajara for me was unchanged other than not needing the certificate.

Amazing that I got off so lightly. They never looked at my dog or asked to see any papers or proof of rabies, etc. at Guadalajara. This was in December. They did want to see the papers for the dog when we checked in at Vancouver.

We arrived into GDL on 1/30 with 2 cats in tow.  The vet did ask for their health certificates and her assistants did a thorough examination of both cats.  Fortunately we came prepared and had all the paperwork in order.
