The federal government, in a decree published on Tuesday evening, has relaxed the entry rules for foreigners into the country. In addition to repealing the ban on flights from the UK, South Africa and India, the rule still does not include a proof of vaccination requirement to enter Brazilian territory – unlike other governments. The changes to the rules were revealed in an additional edition of Diário Oficial da União (DOU).
The ban on flights from the UK has been in effect since December 2020, after the local government identified a new surge of the new coronavirus with the greatest risk of infection: delta. South Africa and India were later included for the same reasons. Currently, this breed is already widespread in Brazil.
The updated decree also removed the ban on entry to Brazil for foreigners who had passed through these countries in the last 14 days.
This action renders null and void the CBF’s extraordinary request for the entry of nine Brazilian players who play in football in England – the latest to be called is midfielder Douglas Luiz of Aston Villa – and is also interested in Edison Cavani, the Uruguayan and Manchester United striker. . The match between Brazil and Uruguay will be held on the 14th next in Manaus.
On September 17, the CBF sent a special request to the federal government to release Brazilian players who play in both English and Cavani. The measure is that there should be no problem for these athletes to arrive to contest the match. There is no quarantine requirement, which eventually led to the suspension of Brazil and Argentina, in September, in Sao Paulo.
Four Argentine players playing in England entered the country without reporting their previous visit to the United Kingdom, which violated Brazilian regulations. The National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) notified the Argentines and then went to the field for the classic South American province.
