Visa Free Travel to Brazil


Canadian passport holders travelling to Brazil between June 1 and Sept. 18 will not need a tourist visa, thanks to the Summer Olympics being held there at this time.

The visa exemption will not require travellers to have purchased tickets to see any of the sporting events at the Olympics, and the “visa waiver” will apply only for tourist visits, with visitors allowed to stay for up to 90 days.

Goway describes South America’s giant, Brazil, as “a seductive country with dazzling beaches, tropical islands and picturesque colonial towns. Its verdant rainforests boast an astounding array of wildlife, while its wildly energetic cities are home to a multitude of ethnic groups. As well as the world’s biggest rainforest in the Amazon, Brazil boasts many wilderness areas including the wildlife-rich wetlands of the Pantanal, the canyons and caves of the Chapada Diamantina and the colourful old gold-mining towns in the mountains of Minas Gerais.”
