The President’s Chief of Staff has signed an ordinance extending restrictions on the entry of foreigners into Brazil across the Uruguayan border. The ban will remain in place for another month. The move follows a recent decision to extend restrictions on South American citizens, but which had left out Brazil’s southern border with Uruguay.
