The current president left the Brasilia Air Force Base for the United States on a Brazilian Air Force (FAB) aircraft. He was joined by advisers and Michelle Bolsonaro, the first lady.

According to a publication in the Official Gazette of the Union, The Presidency of the Republic officially granted permission for eight advisers and assistants to leave the nation for the next month in order to “carry out advice, security and personal support for the future former president”.
The decree states that the president will be absent from Brazil by January 30. As a result, he will not be present for the inauguration ceremony to hand Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva the presidential sash (PT). Bolsonaro must use a commercial or private jet during his return as he is no longer the president.
