Brazil removes pre-travel COVID-19 test requirement for vaccinated travelers

Effective April 1, travelers who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are no longer required to get tested for COVID-19 prior to travel to Brazil. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for purposes of entry to Brazil if they received all required (non-booster) doses of a COVID-19 vaccine that was approved by Brazil’s Health Regulatory Agency (Anvisa), the World Health Organization or the governments of the countries where the vaccine was administered, at least 14 days prior to travel to Brazil. Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated travelers, including Brazilian citizens and residents, are still required to take a reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT PCR) or antigen COVID-19 test no more than 24 hours prior to travel, and test negative, to be admitted to Brazil.
