PCR tests must be taken within 72 hours before travel, while antigen tests must be taken within 24 hours before travel. Additionally, the inspection report will only be accepted if it is written in English, Spanish or Portuguese.

Vaccination required

International tourists who want to come to Brazil for tourism purposes must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Most travelers aged 12 and over will need to show proof of vaccination to board a flight to Brazil. Brazilian authorities recognize that the Covid-19 vaccine has been approved by WHO and ANVISA. Brazil also recognizes all official vaccination certificates, including the EU COVID Digital Certificate.

Entry Rules for Children

Children are vaccinated

Fully vaccinated children are subject to the general travel regulations applicable to vaccinated foreign visitors.

Unvaccinated children

Children under 12 years old traveling with a parent or guardian do not need to provide a negative Covid-19 test report as long as the adult traveling with them submits a negative coronavirus test result.

Children between 2 and 12 years old traveling alone must provide a negative or undetectable test result (RT-PCR or antigen test) taken within the day before entering Brazil.

Important note:
Children under 2 years old are exempt from the testing requirement, while children under 5 years old do not need to show proof of vaccination.

Transit through Brazil

For connecting flights or stopovers where the passenger is not in a restricted security area and/or is moving and one day has passed since the antigen test or RT-PCR test was performed in the laboratory, documentation that the new test, RT-PCR, or antigen test, has negative or undetectable results for the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus , was made upon registration at the federal government of the Republic of Brazil.

Visa requirements

electronic visa

In June 2019, Brazil stopped issuing electronic visas to qualified visitors. The country introduced the eVisa system in 2017 to facilitate the entire application process for visitors from certain countries who do not need to go to the Brazilian embassy to apply for a visa.

The Brazilian e-visa allows a stay of up to 90 days per year and is issued as a multiple-entry permit valid for 2 years. Only four countries are eligible for the Brazilian eVisa, including Australia, Japan, Canada, and the United States. These countries have been added to the list of visa-free countries and it is possible to enter Brazil without a visa if they plan to stay there for a maximum of 90 days.

Other visas

Visitors planning a long-term stay in Brazil or wanting to live/work there as well as those from countries not covered by the visa waiver program must obtain the appropriate visa from the embassy or consulate nearest Brazilian restaurant.

Brazil Travelers Health Declaration Form (DSV)

During the current Covid-19 pandemic, Brazil has implemented a Traveler Health Declaration Form (Declaração de Saúde do Viajante) to monitor the coronavirus situation in the country.

This form is required for all passengers arriving in Brazil. However, as of April 1, 2022, Brazilian authorities no longer require visitors to fill out a form before arrival.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is not necessary to travel to Brazil. However, all travelers are encouraged to purchase insurance that covers Covid-19.

In case of Corona virus infection, all treatment and hospitalization costs will be covered by the insurance company. Choose the insurance that best suits your travel plans in Brazil.
