As of May 2022 the Brazil Traveler’s Health Declaration is no longer needed to enter the country.
Brazil is one of the most desired vacation spots worldwide. To reopen international travel Brazilian health authorities set up a few measures that are meant to guarantee the safety of visitors and permanent residents. Among these measures is the Brazil Health Declaration Form.
Below we’ll explain everything you need to know about this document and how to apply for it with iVisa.com. This way you’ll be able to travel to Brazil in no time. You’ll be able to explore the jungle, relax on the beautiful beaches and party all night long in Rio de Janeiro. Regardless of what you choose to do, you’ll be safer thanks to the measures taken by the local authorities.
What is the Brazil Health Declaration Form?
The Traveler’s Health Declaration was designed by the Brazilian health authorities to screen international arrivals to minimize the risks associated with travel during the coronavirus pandemic. The document includes information about your health condition, vaccination status, and contact information in case of emergency.
It is part of the entry requirements you will need to visit Brazil. The form does not replace a visa. If citizens from your country require a visa, the Brazilian immigration authorities will ask for it when you enter Brazil. Keep in mind some nationalities will require a paper visa. If that’s the case, we suggest you contact the Brazilian embassy.
To check whether you can apply for a Brazilian visa online or a paper visa, use our visa checker tool. You can access it on our homepage. Just select your country of origin from the drop-down menu and the destination country (in this case Brazil), and our software will tell you what documents you’ll need to enter Brazil.
