Travel Advisory for Brazil Updated to Level 3:  Reconsider Travel




On September 13, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for Brazil due to COVID-19, indicating a high level of COVID-19 in the country.  This is a reduction from the CDC’s previous Level 4 Travel Health Notice for Brazil, which indicated a very high level of COVID-19 in the country.  

Concurrent with CDC guidance, the Department of State updated its Travel Advisory for Brazil from Level 4:  Do Not Travel to Level 3:  Reconsider Travel due to COVID-19.  Travelers are also encouraged to exercise increased caution in Brazil due to crime.  Some areas have increased risk.  

Your risk of contracting COVID-19 and developing severe symptoms may be lower if you are fully vaccinated with an FDA authorized vaccine.  Before planning any international travel, please review the CDC’s specific recommendations for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers.  Travelers to Brazil may experience border closures, travel prohibitions, stay at home orders, business closures, and other emergency conditions within Brazil due to COVID-19.  Visit the Embassy’s COVID-19 page for more information on COVID-19 in Brazil.
