The Minister of Transport of the United Kingdom, Grant Shapps, announced this Thursday, 7th, that from next Monday, 11th, Brazilian travelers with full immunization against Covid-19 they will be able to enter the country without having to quarantine. In all, 47 nations were removed from the “red list” of travel. Among them are South Africa, Uruguay and Chile. Only seven countries remain with the restrictions: Colombia, Ecuador, Haiti, Panama, Peru, Dominican Republic and Venezuela. The decision comes a day after publication in the Official Gazette of the Brazilian Union to withdraw the entry restriction to travelers from South Africa, the United Kingdom and India, places with high circulation variants that were seen as threats to public health in Brazil, but it has no connection with the federal government movement. There is still no clarification on whether the quarantine will also not apply to those immunized with CoronaVac vaccines, which are not recognized by the European Union. They may need to pass an exam and undergo quarantine, which can cost more than £2,000 (equivalent to R$15,000). Brazilians who received immunizations from AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Janssen are free from restrictions.
