Brazil Visa Update – Part 2 – by VIP Journeys
Brazil Visa Update! – Monday, June 17th, was the first day of the visa exemption for tourists from the United States, Canada, Japan and Australia.
Our Minister of Tourism was at Rio de Janeiro International Airport to welcome the first tourists that were benefited by the new measure. From now on, visitors from these countries no longer need to apply for a tourist visa to come to Brazil! The entry visa is granted directly at a Brazilian airport or border crossing and is valid for a stay of up to 90 days. This can be extended for an additional 90 days, not exceeding a total of 180 in a year long period.
Tourism from these countries has increased by 35% since the electronic visa was established in Nov. 2017, and we are confident that this new exemption will help further boost this trend.
