In Brazil, only with covid-19 health insurance
In Brazil, one of the countries hardest hit by the pandemic, President Jair Bolsonaro has been against the adoption of exceptional measures to contain the spread of covid-19.
Brazilian authorities allow foreign citizens to enter, but require that they have valid health insurance, something that is actually common in many countries under normal circumstances.
Mandatory test in Bolivia
In Bolivia, authorities announced the resumption of international flights in early September.
Until then, only special repatriation flights had been allowed.
International travelers can enter Bolivia since then, but are required to present a negative coronavirus test performed no more than seven days before flying.
The first countries with which Bolivia has once again had an air connection after the pandemic stopped have been the United States and Spain, and the list is expected to increase over the weeks, provided that the health situation allows it.
Mexico, always open
In Mexico, the situation has always been quite different from the rest of the region.
Mexican airports never closed because the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador does not consider it to be a measure with real results against covid-19.
By not being included in the list of risk countries of the United States authorities, Mexico has become in recent months.
It has become a stopover for many European travelers who had that country as their final destination.
Colombia opens up again amidst covid-19
International flights started operating again in the country on September 19, 2020, after six months, without doing so due to covid-19.
As happened in other European and Asian countries that again received international travelers.
After having closed their borders, the Colombian authorities have established a gradual return to normality.
In this first phase, only flights will depart and arrive to and from the United States, Brazil, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Guatemala.
