U.S. Travelers Can Travel to Brazil Visa-Free Starting June

U.S. Travelers Can Travel to Brazil Visa-Free Starting June

Starting on June 17, travelers from certain countries will be allowed to travel around Brazil with no visa. This comes from a push to make visitor access to Brazil more simple.

The former e-visa

In January of 2018, Brazil created an e-visa program, where you would pay $44.00 USD online, fill out an application, and receive a digital visa. This program was for travelers from Canada, Japan, U.S., and Australia.

The e-visa program had great results, with an increase in visa applications of 35%. This program has lasted less than a year before deciding to just end the travel visa altogether.

A visa exemption for citizens of the USA, Australia, Canada and Japan who wish to travel to Brazil was enacted last week and will begin on June 17 2019. This will enable visitors from these four countries to enter Brazil without a visa. pic.twitter.com/3iwjDWW6TD

The new requirements

While it will be easier to travel, there are still some restrictions. You can only stay in Brazil for 90 days, starting from your first day of entry. From there, you can request an extension to 180 days within a 12-month period.

The last time visa requirements were lifted to this degree was during the 2016 Olympics. 

A trip to Brazil

It's never too early to start planning your trip, especially considering that the visa-free travel begins over the summer! A trip to Brazil could mean spending a lot of money, if you don't plan ahead.
