Regarding air travel, the new ruling provides that “foreign passengers visiting the country for up to ninety days will be required to provide their carrier, prior to boarding the aircraft, with proof of health insurance valid in Brazil and covering the entire duration of their intended stay, otherwise they will be impeded from entering the national territory by the migration authority, on grounds of non compliance with the health authority.”

International flights via the states of Mato Grosso do Sul, Paraíba, Rondônia, Rio Grande do Sul and Tocantins are prohibited.

The new ruling extends restrictions on entry by land or water for an additional 30 days, with further extension possible as per technical advice from the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa).
