Covid-related measures for traveling to Brazil:

  • Either the health pass with a complete vaccination cycle
  • Or a negative PCR test of – 24 hours
  • Children under 12 can now enter Brazil without any test or pass requirements.



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.)
