Brazil and Uruguay closed to tourism


According to a report prepared by the Federation of Travel and Tourism Agencies (Faevyt) and sent to its associates in the interior of the country, both Brazil and Uruguay maintain some restrictions for entry through their borders, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. .

In the first case, Brazil, which has its land borders closed since March 19, extended for 30 days (until November 5) the prohibition of entry by land, sea or river of foreigners to the country.

With the measure, no tourist can enter Brazil through the borders it has with Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, French Guyana, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela.

On September 25, Brazil authorized the arrival of foreign citizens to the country provided they do so by plane.

For its part, in Uruguay, faced with versions of possible health passports, the Vice Minister of Tourism clarified that foreign tourists cannot enter the country and there is still no opening date.

Only Uruguayan citizens and people framed within nine very specific categories can enter, such as resident foreigners or relatives of citizens who come for reasons of family reunification, among others.

For authorized cases of admission, a protocol governs that requires a negative result swab performed a maximum of 72 hours before the trip and then it is mandatory to do an isolation of 14 days. You can choose to perform a new PCR test on the seventh day of the isolation period (the cost is borne by the traveler) and, in case of negative, you are enabled to move freely through the territory.
