Brazil travel advice

Partial strikes by airport workers are causing delays at Rio de Janeiro’s domestic and international airports on Thursday 12 June. Some access roads to the international airport are also blocked. Monitor local media and allow extra time if you’re flying from or transiting through Rio.

Protests continue to take place regularly, often without warning, in a number of Brazilian cities, including Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and Belo Horizonte. There have been violent incidents and injuries. Take extra care and avoid all large gatherings and demonstrations. Monitor local media and follow the guidance of local authorities.
