NEW RULES FOR ENTRY OF TRAVELERS IN BRAZIL

On Monday (12/09), the federal government published new rules on the Official Federal Gazette for the entry of travelers into the country.

International travel to Brazil is permitted if travelers show a COVID-19 vaccination certificate or a negative RT-PCR/antigen test. The certificate, as well as the test, must meet the requirements to ensure entry is allowed. Before the new rules, non-vaccinated travelers were only allowed to enter the country if they showed a negative RT-PCR/antigen test and if they fitted specific conditions defined by law, such as being ineligible to vaccinate due to health conditions.

Vaccination requirement

Only international certificates for full vaccination against COVID-19 using an approved vaccine are valid. The final dose must have been administered at least 14 days before departure. The certificate must be in English, Portuguese or Spanish and can be printed or in digital format, they will not be accepted exclusively in QR code format. Authorized vaccines include those approved by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Medical test/certificate requirement
