General Information on COVID 19

Brazil is one of the countries to have suffered the most from Covid 19 with 5.1 million people infected and 150,600 dead as of October 12, 2019. However, the health situation has improved in recent weeks with a number of deaths dropping from 1,100 to 300 on average day and a number of infected from 45,000 to 8,500.

Most tourist sites have reopened since mid-September (including Christ and Sugarloaf) but with limited attendance and a health protocol to be respected. Ditto for natural parks and museums.

Foreign tourists have been allowed to enter Brazil since August without a PCR test requirement but this may change. The restriction on presenting compulsory health insurance in the amount of at least R $ 30,000 was lifted on October 10. There is therefore no longer any administrative constraint on entry into Brazilian territory.

For your information, in Rio, the fireworks over Copacabana have been canceled for New Years Eve as well as Carnival in February 2021, the latter being possibly postponed to a later date that we do not know for the moment.

You can now consider traveling to Brazil although we advise you to wait a few more months, that is to say in 2021, to come and discover, in the best possible conditions, Rio the “Cidade Maravilhosa” and this magnificent country.



The city of Rio de Janeiro with the Brazilian Ministry of Tourism launched in June 2020 a certification program for travel agencies and guides that respect a protocol related to COVID 19 to ensure the health safety of tourists in Brazil.

Good Guide In Rio joined this program and received the “TURISMO CONSCIENTE” certification on June 28 which commits to respecting the following rules:

  • Use of masks by our guides and drivers when they are in contact with our customers, the latter being encouraged to wear them without obligatory nature except in closed environments (cars and vans, closed rooms, elevators etc …). Customers must have their own face mask.
  • Respect for barrier gestures.
  • Respect for social distancing, as far as possible, during guided tours.
  • Commitment to use hydro-alcoholic gel to clean hands and make gel available to customers.
  • Complete sanitation of vehicles before each visit.
  • Health vigilance for guides and drivers with regular PCR tests. Those with symptoms like fever or cough will be quarantined. The guide reserves the right to exclude any visitor showing these symptoms and invite them to return to their hotel in order to protect the group from a risk of possible contamination.
  • Communicate good health practices to customers and monitor compliance with these practices during visits to places that have specifically set up a health protocol (Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, Museums, Churches, etc.)
