Following the current Brazilian President's election loss, protests and other forms of civil unrest, including road blockades, have occurred throughout Brazil.
In Sao Paulo, several main highways - including SP-348 to Sumare - and roads around the Guarulhos International Airport have been blocked. Law enforcement are actively working to remove the blockades.
During the post-election period, which could last until the transfer of power on 1 January 2023, travelers may see further unrest that may increase in volatility and additional road blockades. Travelers may experience fuel shortages, traffic congestion, and large gatherings with little to no notice.
Travelers should confirm their routes are clear before departure and plan for alternative routes when necessary, utilizing local contacts for guidance when possible. Additionally, avoid all demonstrations.
