Brazil imposes temporary ban on travel from Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe
The Brazilian Government recently announced that individuals seeking to travel to Brazil from Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe, and those who were present in any of these locations in the 14 days preceding their desired travel to Brazil, are temporarily inadmissible until further notice. The temporary ban on travel from the six southern African countries follows the discovery of the B.1.1.529 ("omicron") variant of COVID-19 and is designed to limit the spread of the omicron variant in Brazil.
