febre amarella small versionIn January 2019, Health Authorities of Brazil have started issuing the International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) electronically (see Information Note prepared by Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency (ANVISA, Agencia Nacional de Vigilancia Sanitaria)). 

To avoid unnecessary interferences with international travel and trade, Authorities at Points of Entry, airlines and other conveyances operators need to be aware about the change of policy introduced by Brazil.

Yellow fever is the only disease for which vaccination, documented in the ICVP, can be requested as a condition for entry, and/or, where applicable, exit. A single dose of vaccine against yellow fever confers life-long protection against this disease.
