Information on COVID 19
Brazil is one of the countries to have suffered the most from Covid 19 with 5.25 million people infected and 154,000 deads as of October 19, 2020. However, the health situation has improved since september 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.
