Travel Update Health Alert
Commercial flights between the United States and Brazil continue to run on a regular basis. As flights are subject to change, please contact airlines directly for the most current schedule information. We continue to encourage U.S. citizens who wish to return to the United States to make commercial flight arrangements as soon as possible unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period. The U.S. government does not currently anticipate arranging repatriation flights from Brazil.
Regarding entry restrictions into either Brazil or the United States, Brazil has extended its decree that bans the entry of foreigners, with the following exceptions, from entering the country by air, land, and sea through July 5. Entry into the United States remains suspended, per Presidential Proclamation, of foreign nationals of all nationalities, including Brazilians, who were present in Brazil within 14 days prior to their arrival at the port of entry. The travel restrictions do not apply to U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents (Green Card holders), most immediate family members of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, and specific categories of individual visa holders who are identified in the Proclamation.
