Closed since March, the border between Brazil and Paraguay will be open during restricted hours and only for citizens of Foz do Iguaçu

Closed since March due to the covid-19 pandemic, the Friendship Bridge, on the border of Brazil with Paraguay, reopens from this Thursday, 15. But not all Brazilians can pass.

According to the health protocol of the neighboring country, the ticket is valid only for the twin cities of Foz do Iguaçu and Ciudad del Este. In other words, only people with identity cards issued in the Brazilian city are allowed to cross the border.

The border is open between 5 am and 2 pm, only for vehicles. The Paraguayan government has said it will not inspect all cars, but does a random check to verify the documentation. The use of a mask is mandatory. Walking, which is very common on the bridge, remains prohibited.

For tourists, international medical insurance is required which includes tests of covid-19 and ICU admissions. The departure can be done at any time. For tourists and merchants, circulation is permitted within a radius of up to 30 kilometers from Cidade do Leste.
