Advice For Travellers

Be aware of political tensions over the possible impeachment of the Brazilian president. Protests could occur in any city at any time.

While protests may be peaceful, minimize safety risk by avoiding areas of large public gatherings or demonstrations. Leave an area if tension begins to develop between groups. Even peaceful situations can quickly and unexpectedly escalate into violent confrontations.
