testing for covid-19

Thinking about the comfort and safety of passengers, Pier Mauá offers testing for covid-19 in its facilities. The exams are not free and, for better planning and peace of mind, the tests can be purchased in advance for a different price through travel agencies.

These additional measures that are being taken were established by the shipping companies, based on the current health and safety protocol for the 2022/2023 season in South America, defined and approved by the sanitary and health authorities.
