Brazil opens its air gates to foreigners


Brazil has reopened its air borders to foreign citizens. The move is aimed at restoring the country's tourism industry, devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the same time, the government decree extends for 30 days the ban on entry to Brazil of foreigners arriving in the country by land or sea.

Brazil, with a population of more than 210 million, closed its air borders to foreign travelers on March 30.

The National confederation of trade in goods, services and tourism estimates that the Brazilian tourism industry has already suffered losses of US$ 23.6 million.

According to the International Monetary Fund, the first economy in Latin America is expected to decline by 9.1% of GDP this year.

Brazil, whose citizens are banned from entering the United States and European Union countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this week registered 2.5 million cases of coronavirus infection and more than 90,000 deaths caused by it.
