Brazil clears travelers from the UK, South Africa and India to enter the country

Brazil has lifted a restriction that blocked people coming from the United Kingdom, South Africa and India from entering the country due to the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a decision published in the country’s official gazette late on Tuesday.

The South American country said the measure applies to travelers arriving by air. They will only need to show a negative test for the coronavirus, which means vaccination proof is not required.

According to Brazil’s government, foreigners coming by land will still be prevented from entering the country.
