Like many other destinations around the world, these Brazilian islands are eager to open to tourists. However, they’re taking a slightly different approach than other tourist hotspots. Rather than requiring a negative COVID-test, the archipelago of Fernando de Noronha is only allowing tourists who have already had COVID-19 and recovered.
The island off the northeastern coast of Brazil is famous for its marine life, beaches, and mountains along the coast. It has only 3,100 permanent residents, and the government is doing its best to keep those residents safe while also salvaging tourism.
