Brazilian Tourism Minister Marcelo Alvaro Antonio announced on Wednesday, January 16, plans to eliminate visa requirements for US citizens. The move is part of a plan to boost tourism and improve relations between the two countries, although officials have not specified the effective date. The ministry also plans to eliminate visa requirements for citizens of Australia, Canada, and Japan at a later date.
Currently, Americans must apply for a visa online or at a consulate and pay USD 44 for a two-year visa or USD 160 for a ten-year visa.
Individuals traveling to Brazil are advised to stay abreast of visa and entry requirements.
