Brazil has reinstated the requirement for passengers to wear face masks on flights and inside airports.

The Foreign Office (FCDO) said the Brazilian Government had introduced the measure as a safety precaution to limit the spread of COVID-19.

In an update to its travel advice, the FCDO said: “You should check the website of the airport you are flying into or transiting through to see how this could affect you.”

The FCDO said guidance on mask wearing may vary from state to state, with different rules in different cities.

Travellers to Brazil must be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative PCR or antigen test taken within the previous 24 hours, or proof of recent recovery from COVID.

There are additional requirements to show proof of vaccination in some areas of Brazil to access certain places, including hotels and restaurants. “The precise requirements may vary from venue to venue so you should check on compliancy requirements in advance,” said the FCDO.
