On 28 September 2020, the U.S. Embassy in Brasilia issued a Health Alert regarding Brazil’s extension of entry restrictions, which reads in part as follows: “Effective September 25, Brazil extended the restrictions on entry of foreigners by land (unless for transit) and sea, through at least October 23. The entry of foreign visitors traveling by air is currently permitted.

“The September 24 decree stipulates that foreign travelers entering Brazil by air, for a short stay of up to 90 days, must present proof of purchase of health insurance, in English, Portuguese, or Spanish, that is valid in Brazil for the entire period of the trip with minimum coverage of 30,000 Brazilian reals [approximately 5,365 U.S. dollars] to an airline agent prior to boarding. Failure to provide proof could result in the denial of aircraft boarding by airline agents or denial of entry to Brazil by Brazilian authorities.”
