This means that if you are a citizen of the United States, you are not affected by the suspension of travel from Brazil to the United States. Citizens of Brazil are included as foreign nationals who are affected by the travel restrictions resulting from the proclamation.
“I have suspended and limited the entry of aliens recently present in certain foreign jurisdictions where significant COVID-19 outbreaks have occurred”, Trump wrote in the proclamation. “These jurisdictions include the People’s Republic of China (excluding the Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau), the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Schengen Area, the United Kingdom (excluding overseas territories outside of Europe), and the Republic of Ireland.”
Citizens of the United States who are in Brazil and want to return to the United States are encouraged to book tickets on commercial flights as soon as possible — unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period, as flight schedules may change with little to no notice; and the arrangement of repatriation flights from Brazil is not anticipated to occur by the federal government of the United States.
Commercial flights are not affected by the proclamation itself, as regular commercial flights to the United States are still available from São Paulo and Campinas. Citizens of the United States who are in Brazil and want to return to the United States are encouraged to contact airlines directly for the most current schedule information.
