Health Precautions

Obligatory Vaccination and Other Recommendations
It is recommended that everyone 16 years of age and older should get fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before travel and present, if necessary, evidence of COVID-19 vaccination at the border. The updated information on all health entry requirements as well as on routine and recommended vaccines for Brazil are provided on the dedicated pages on TravelHealthPro and CDC websites.
While there are no official requirements for vaccination, the following are strongly recommended: tetanus, diphtheria, typhoid fever, chickenpox, influenza, measles, rabies, hepatitis A and B and poliomyelitis. There is no major health risk if you are traveling in large Brazilian cities but if you visit the inlands, particularly the Amazon region, it is advised to be vaccinated against yellow fever and protected against malaria and dengue.

Safety Conditions

Crime
There is a high level of crime in Brazil, concentrated in the big shanty towns of large cities. It is recommended to avoid disreputable districts and parts of towns which are very quiet at night, be alert when leaving a bank, and avoid wearing gaudy and expensive clothes and accessories that could attract attention. The incidence of crime against tourists is greatest in touristic areas. In certain large cities, a specialized touristic police exists.
Terrorist Risk
No terrorist groups have been recorded.
Risk of Natural Disaster
Rare storms on the coast, but not a particular danger.
For Further Information
