The Brazilian Government reopened borders for foreigners on flights; the restriction continues to apply to five states

The Brazilian federal government decided to reopen on July 29, for 30 days, the borders of Brazil for foreign passengers traveling by plane. The restriction had been defined in March and was being renewed every month, as a strategy to fight the new coronavirus. The ordinance published in an extra edition of the Official Gazette maintains the restriction of entry in five states: Mato Grosso do Sul, Paraiba, Rondonia, Rio Grande do Sul, and Tocantins. In other words: international flights scheduled for landing at these airports remain barred until the end of August. The document does not explain why only these terminals had their operating restrictions maintained. The previous ordinance from June provided for entry by air only through the airports of Galeao (RJ), Brasilia (DF), Guarulhos, and Viracopos (both in SP). – https://g1.globo.com/politica/noticia/2020/07/29/governo-prorroga-restricao-a-entrada-de-estrangeiros-no-brasil-ate-o-fim-de-agosto.ghtml
