Covid-19 in Brazil

Ban on entry nullified

- The Brazilian Government established by decree that from 30 July 2020 on, non-Brazilian travelers are again permitted to enter Brazil by air and may stay in Brazil for up to 90 days with a tourist visa. This was prohibited from 23 March 2020 until 29 July 2020.
- By new decree from 24 September 2020 the Brazilian Government established that non-Brazilian travelers are again permitted to enter Brazil via all Brazilian airports.
- On 5 October 2020, entry restrictions have been updated by a new ordinance that removes the health insurance requirements for non-Brazilian travelers to enter Brazil. Until then it was an indispensable requirement to show a valid health insurance for the entire stay in Brazil, covering at least R$ 30,000 and issued either in Portuguese or English. Before traveling, an insurance certificate had to be provided to the transporting airline. Brazilian Federal Police could deny entry into the country, if no adequate insurance certificate was presented upon arrival.
- Whoever counteracts the decree, may be pursued under civil, administrative and penal law in Brazil and will be repatriated immediately.
- Brazilian regulatory agencies may instal additional norms like certain sanitation protocols.
- Cases not covered by the decree, may be decided by the Department of Justice and Public Safety in Brazil.

It Is Your Obligation to Use a Mask

For the duration of the pandemic, individuals in Brazil are obligated to wear masks in enclosed public spaces such as banks, shops and industry and service companies. The same is true when using means of both public and private transportation services, including taxis. Masks of acceptable quality and standards can be manufactured industrially or at home.

Protecting Yourself and Others from Infection / Tips from the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health

In order to avoid the spreading of pathogens and protect others from infection, sick individuals should follow the rules of coughing etiquette, which also apply when sneezing:
- When coughing or sneezing, keep at least three feet (one meter) away from others and turn away.
- It is best to sneeze or cough into a disposable handkerchief, which is to be used only once and then immediately disposed of in a trash can with a lid. If a non-disposable handkerchief is used, it should be washed at 140 °F (60 °C) afterwards.
- Always remember to wash your hands thoroughly after cleaning your nose, sneezing or coughing!
- If no handkerchief is handy, keep the crook of your arm in front of your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing while turning away from others.

Thorough hand washing is done in 5 steps:
- Hold your hands under running water. You can choose a comfortable temperature.
- Thoroughly apply soap to your hands—including palms, the back of your hands, fingertips, finger gaps and thumbs. Don't forget your fingernails. Liquid soap is more hygienic than bars of soap, especially in public restrooms.
- Gently rub the soap into all areas. Thorough hand washing takes 20 to 30 seconds.
- Rinse your hands under running water. In public restrooms, use a disposable towel or your elbow to turn off the running water.
- Dry your hands carefully, including the spaces between your fingers. In public restrooms, disposable towels are best suited for this purpose. At home, everyone should use their own personal towel.
