The competent Brazilian authorities also require a certificate of vaccination against yellow fever during travel from Brazil to other Latin American countries.


No social security agreement has been signed.


HEALTH SITUATION Vaccination against yellow fever is not mandatory, but it is advised to tourists who plan to travel to all areas of the federal states in the Amazon region, i.e. in the north and in the central-western part of the country, where the yellow fever epidemic is constantly present. This includes the popular touristic federal units of the Federal District (capital - Brasilia), Sao Paulo and Bahia. In the states of Rio de Janeiro and Espirito Santo, the epidemic occurs sporadically, especially in forest areas. Vaccination against yellow fever should be carried out immediately, 10 days before the planned trip. Due to the large territory and different climatic zones and conditions, there is no single health situation that applies to the whole of Brazil. Therefore, it is necessary for travelers to consult data from the World Health Organization (WHO) for certain areas, which monitors the health situation on a daily basis, especially regarding epidemics, in Brazil and other countries of the region. The results are published on the website MDTravelHealth publishes complete health recommendations for travelers ( Due to the presence of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, which transmit dengue fever, Zika virus, yellow fever and chikungunya virus, caution is needed in many parts of the country. For all areas, the general rule is to drink bottled water and only consume thermally processed food. It is advised not to buy bottled water from street vendors. Health care in cities is at a relatively good level in private hospitals, with payment of all costs.Travelers planning to travel directly from Brazil to certain Latin American countries should check whether they need a yellow fever vaccination certificate, as such a certificate is mandatory for some countries.

SECURITY SITUATION  Citizens of the Republic of Serbia intending to travel to Brazil are advised to exercise increased caution due to criminal activities and the activity of narco-groups in large coastal cities, as well as in the interior of the country, including the capital of Brasília. Travellers are advised to avoid border areas. Due to frequent armed robberies, foreigners are advised not to carry precious items, particularly jewellery or large amounts of money, and to avoid favelas and movement along side streets at night, and to stay only in places envisaged for foreign tourists with increased police presence. In case of a loss of documents or possessions, the local police should be contacted.

TRANSPORT  Due to large distances, foreigners mainly use air travel. There are several international airports, the best-known ones being in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasília, Salvador, Fortaleza, and Recife.

Brazil can be accessed by water from Bolivia, Paraguay, and Peru (along the Amazon river). Road border crossings exist with all neighbouring countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Guyana, French Guyana, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venezuela), except for Surinam.

Citizens of the Republic of Serbia may drive motor vehicles within the territory of Brazil if, in addition to a driver's licence from the Republic of Serbia, they have a valid international driving permit, during the first 180 days of their stay. Thereafter, they need to exchange it for a local driver’s licence.

OTHER  The currency of Brazil is the real. All major global credit cards are accepted in Brazil (American Express, Diners Club, Visa, MasterCard), including those issued by Serbian banks for use abroad. Prior to leaving for Brazil, travellers are advise to inform their card-issuing bank about the planned trip and to request it to enable money transfers, since certain banks hold Brazil on the list of high-risk countries for credit card fraud. Daily expenses for staying in Brazil range on average between 100 and 500 USD, depending on the place and accommodation. During the main tourist season, from December to February, all prices on average increase by 30%. Information on all forms of tourist services can be found on the official website of the Ministry of Tourism (
