With mass vaccination and easing of many countries, many borders have begun to ease entry restrictions for travelers in each region, including vaccination and testing for covid-19 virus along the flight.
Currently, not all countries require tourists to be tested for the coronavirus, even if they are not fully immunized or without any dose of the vaccine. Gradually, EU countries no longer need tests for covid-19 and there are still a few regions that are maintaining these measures.
Portugal, for example, waived this requirement at the beginning of July, and now, tourists do not even need to provide proof of vaccination when entering the country. However, health measures such as the use of masks on public transport are still mandatory.
In the case of France and Spain, countries that receive a large number of tourists each year, it is still necessary to carry out tests against Covid-19, but only if the visitor is not vaccinated.
The United States, on the other hand, is another region that Brazilians often seek on vacation and almost year-round, and still does not allow in travelers without a full immunization – however, the need for testing has subsided in recent months.
Differences between vaccination status
It is worth noting that there is a difference between fully vaccinated, incomplete immunized (if they did not take the second or third dose) and unvaccinated travelers. Thus, there are still states that require negative PCR tests 72 hours before boarding or antigen tests 48 or 24 hours before a passenger arrives in the country.
That is why it is important to check the official websites or the websites of embassies what are the mandatory requirements for entering each country – the rules change daily. They are the sites that display files The situation in Europe And other offers global data.
