Brazil COVID Restrictions
Brazil like most Covid-19 affected countries have formulated certain restrictions and policies to prevent a further spread and a new wave of Covid-19 and these entry and travel restrictions include;
- Travelers entering Brazil by air must present a negative PCR test performed within 72 hours, and a traveler’s health declaration form to their airline before boarding (the airline will distribute the form).
- Land and sea borders are closed to non-citizens with exemptions for travelers who are en route to fly home. In that case, travelers must get authorization in advance, present a note from their own embassy or consulate authorizing their crossing at the border, show the plane ticket, and go straight to the airport.
- There is no quarantine on arrival. Even quarantine for those with symptoms is voluntary.
Who Can Travel To Brazil?
