We know you’ve probably had a few questions about COVID-19 testing before and during your trip. This blog will help answer those questions, and outline exactly when to take your COVID test before you leave.

Should I quarantine before I go?

We strongly suggest that you self-quarantine one week prior to your trip to help ensure you don’t get COVID before entering the country.

Do I need to get tested before I leave?

 No, a COVID-19 test is not required to enter Brazil for vaccinated travelers.

Will I have to take any more COVID tests once I'm on my trip?

No COVID testing is required upon arrival or to return.

COVID Vaccine Requirements?

The COVID-19 vaccine is required for all 2022 HXP participants. You will need to bring your physical vaccine card with you on your trip. Do not laminate or modify your vaccine card in any way.

If you are not fully vaccinated or bring a counterfeit vaccine card you will not be allowed on your HXP trip. 

To be considered fully vaccinated you must have received the final dose at least 14 days prior to boarding.

Proof of vaccination is required before the flight to Brazil, it must be printed in English, Spanish, or Portuguese. QR format will not be accepted.

Are there any other COVID requirements?

When traveling to Brazil, it is recommended that you carry proof of health insurance (i.e., your health insurance card).

Within 24 hours of boarding your flight to Brazil, you must fill out a Traveler’s Health Declaration. This form can be found here. You will fill out this form with your Trip Leaders at the airport, so don’t fill it out beforehand!  It will ask for your email, then send you a personal link for the form. The form will be in Portuguese but can be translated into English.

Masks are required in all public spaces.

What happens if I test positive while on my trip?

If you test positive for COVID-19 while on your trip, you will be required to quarantine at your own expense . We recommend obtaining health insurance to cover this potential cost, in case you test positive while in-country. 

You've got this!

Now take a deep breath. We know it seems like a lot to figure out, but everything will run smoothly, and we’ll have you out serving on your trip without any issues.

With love,

Your HXP Team
