Brazil to announce visa-free entry to residents of 4 countries

Published on : Friday, March 22, 2019

The Brazilian government has announced that it would allow visa-free entry to for residents of the U.S., Canada, Australia and Japan soon.

 

If the visitors have a valid passport, they no longer need to apply and pay for a visa to enter Brazil whether they are traveling for business reasons or for pleasure. Tourists can stay up to 90 days per year, with an extension of up to 180 days. That would give travelers plenty of time to go surfing with dolphins, explore wine country and see the region’s rain forests.

 

The government hopes that this initiative will improve tourism in Brazil. The country has previously waived visa requirements around events like the Olympics. According to the UNWTO, measures like this could potentially increase tourism by 25 percent.

 

As per a statement by Brazil Tourism, Brazil has already implemented an electronic visa that has increased visa application for the country by 35 percent. The new visa waiver policy should continue this upward trend.

 

By 2022, the Ministry of Tourism hopes to reach its goal of 12 million foreign visitors annually. To quote Marcelo Alvaro Antônio, the Minister of Tourism, “This is one of the most important achievements of the Brazilian tourism industry in the last 15 years and we are confident that it will be extremely beneficial to the country. This is the first step; we still have much to celebrate.” The new policy would come into effect on June 17.
