Brazil will not require a vaccination certificate for tourists from neighboring countries
According to the regulations, people who want to enter the country must only present a negative COVID-19 certificate, issued by an authorized laboratory
The Brazilian government continues to eliminate restrictions on the entry of tourists from abroad, and on Tuesday (5) published an official resolution in which it exempts travelers from presenting vaccination certificates against COVID-19. According to the regulations, people who want to enter the country must only present a negative COVID-19 certificate, issued by an authorized laboratory.
The entry ban was also lifted for passengers whose flights of origin are the United Kingdom, South Africa and India, previously considered high risk due to the Coronavirus outbreaks of various reported strains. Air transport is conditioned, from now on, to the presentation before shipment of the negative result in the antigen test (carried out up to 24 hours before) or PCR, carried out in the previous 72 hours. To the certificates, the passenger must attach a health declaration available on the Anvisa website.
The prohibition on the entry of foreigners to Brazil by land, however, remains in force, if it is expected to be modified in the coming weeks. Currently, the only country whose border is open for transit to Brazil is Paraguay; residents of cities neighboring Brazil are also allowed to cross the border, provided they present biosafety documents.
Argentina is the main source of international tourists to Brazil (almost two million travelers in 2019, before the pandemic). The ties of proximity and camaraderie have united the two countries for decades and for many Argentines Brazil is an ideal vacation destination, since its beaches and natural attractions are always in the imagination of travelers.
