Vaccinations and travel

Brazil Travel Vaccinations


Medical services

All foreign visitors will be looked after by the public health service in an emergency and there are private hospitals in the major metropolitan areas. Private medical care is expensive however, so it’s advisable you take out travel insurance before your trip to Brazil.

Safety and security

As in any city you should be sensible and streetwise to ensure a trouble-free visit. Avoid taking valuables or carrying large amounts of cash with you and make use of hotel safes. Be aware of your bags when you’re out, and your pocket, as pick pocketing still occurs. Watch the street kids in Rio de Janeiro in particular, they’re cute and look innocent but they’re some of the most elusive pick pocketers.

If you’re single you’re likely to hook up at one of the clubs – but beware of taking anyone back to your hotel, it is the easiest way to become a victim of theft or violence. And of course, don’t leave your drink unattended!
