Border transit information  

The entry of foreigners into Brazil, in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, is governed by interministerial ordinances, which are updated monthly by the Federal Government. In its last update, Ordinance 470, of October 2, 2020 (click here to access), maintains the authorization for foreigners to enter into Brazil through any airport in the country, provided that the migratory requirements are met, such as having an entry visa when it is required.
The Ordinance maintains the exceptional and temporary restriction on the entry of foreigners of any nationality into the country by road, other land or waterway transport and extends it for 30 more days.
