Will there be a travel security risk at the World Cup in Brazil? As the majority of the world’s population will now be aware, the FIFA World Cup is set to take place in Brazil from 12 June – 13 July 2014 when an estimated 600,000 tourists and football supporters from across the globe will embark on a journey of a lifetime to watch their teams represent their nations across twelve host cities throughout the country.
This travel advisory brief has been produced by World Travel Safety, the travel risk management division of Bradburys Global Risk Partners, for travellers intending on visiting Brazil for the tournament. We have decided to make this advisory free to travellers of all nationalities, not to scaremonger or to engender trepidation, but to provide an insight into
some of the risks associated with travelling to some of Brazil’s host cities for those that may not be aware, so that travellers can remain safe and risk-free.
