Tourists from around the world now have reason to celebrate, as Brazil has signed a decree to waive visa requirements for visitors from the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan. This means it has just become even easier for citizens from these countries to experience the wealth of culture and natural beauty Brazil has to offer.
The rule change will only come into effect on June 17. Tourists from the aforementioned countries will be granted a 90-day tourist visa upon arrival, which can be extended for a further 90 days by simply visiting the nearest Federal Police office. The new rules apply to all people traveling to Brazil for tourism, business, transit, or to perform sports or artistic activities.
Brazil is now more open to American, Canadian, Australian, and Japanese tourists than ever before. It is now even easier for visitors to experience the countless stunning beaches along its 7,491 kilometers of coastline, taking in the gorgeous views of Jericoacoara, Angra dos Reis, or Bombinhas, or the pulsating cities of Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, and São Paulo.
Brazil is open to you
The move to waive visa requirements is not entirely new to Brazil. During the Rio 2016 Olympics, a similar rule was temporarily adopted—with a great deal of success.
The list of things to do, see, and experience in Brazil is endless, and it is no wonder recent studies show 95 percent of tourists who have visited Brazil want to return to the country.
In the same study, 97 percent of respondents spoke highly of the hospitality of the Brazilian people, a world-renowned trait that makes any visit to the country a true joy. They also mentioned the high quality of the gastronomy, restaurants, and accommodation facilities found all over Brazil.
Now, visiting Brazil has become as easy as it is unforgettable.
