Brazil has opened its doors for your clients.
The Brazilian Government will allow visa-free entry for citizens of Canada, as well as the US, Australia, and Japan, effective June 17. Until then, the current e-visa will be required.
Citizens of those countries wishing to visit Brazil will no longer need to apply or pay for a visa. They will be able to stay in Brazil for 90 days from the date of first entry, extendable for an equal period, provided that it does not exceed 180 days, every 12 months, counted from the date of the first entry into the country.
This development comes as part of a series of measures that Brazil has taken to facilitate visitor access to the country. Brazil has already seen extremely positive results with an increase of about 35% in the visa application in less than a year since implementing e-visa.
“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,” said Marcelo Alvaro Antônio, minister of tourism. “This decision of the Brazilian government proves that we are living a new moment and that tourism is being seen as a vector of economic and social growth of the entire nation.”
