Determine your eligibility for travel

To determine your eligibility for travel, please refer to the following conditions and requirements for Brazil:

If you are fully vaccinated, you do not need to take a COVID-19 test to enter Brazil. Most people aged 12 or older traveling to Brazil will need to present a vaccination certificate to the airline before boarding and during travel.

If you’re not fully vaccinated and traveling to Brazil by air, you’ll need to show proof of a negative PCR test or a negative antigen test, taken no more than 24 hours before boarding.

To avoid disruption to your travel plans, you should present either a valid vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test result.

Children under 2 do not need to present proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result to enter Brazil. Any unvaccinated children between the ages of 2 and 12 will be granted entry when flying to Brazil with their parents or legal guardians. Parents or guardians who are fully vaccinated are also exempt from presenting a negative test for COVID-19. However, if not fully vaccinated, they will need to present proof of a negative PCR test or an antigen test for COVID-19 taken within 24 hours of boarding. Details of exemptions can be found on the Brazilian government website (https://www.gov.br/anvisa/pt-br/assuntos/paf/coronavirus/viajantes/regras-para-entrada-portaria).

Not required

To qualify as a fully vaccinated traveler to Brazil, your final vaccine dose must have been administered at least 14 days prior to travel.

Brazilian authorities have confirmed that vaccines recommended and approved for use by the World Health Organisation are accepted for entry to Brazil.

Domestic travel

The situation varies around Brazil, each state will determine local measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, and this includes regulation on the opening of non-essential services (shops, restaurants, bars, beaches and other leisure activities). You should refer to official guidance in your location for details of what preventative measures are in place and how you can comply with them. It’s highly possible that public places likely to attract large crowds may be closed at short notice. For example, several cities have decided not to host the traditional street Carnival in 2022. These include Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Recife and Salvador, although controlled events are still expected to take place.
