Brazilian tourists have been banned in a large number of countries due to the high infection rate of Covid-19 – there have been nearly 21 million cases in Brazil and nearly 580,000 deaths from the disease.

Until Wednesday, September 1, 2021, Brazilian citizens could not enter Portugal as tourists, but only if the trip was considered necessary (for example, for professional reasons, for study, for family reunification, for health reasons or for humanitarian reasons).

There is no reference, in the text of Diário da República, to providing evidence of vaccination.
In Portugal, 73% of the population is fully vaccinated, according to data from the country’s Ministry of Health. The plan to reopen borders takes this into account.
