As of June 17, travelers from the United States, Canada, Japan and Australia will be able to travel to Brazil visa-free.

Previously, Brazil was known as a country that made it difficult for Americans to visit. Visas were expensive and obtaining one, required a visit to the consulate.

Now, you will be able to experience Brazil for up to 90 days with a valid passport. You can also extend your visa by up to 180 days by getting an extension through the Federal Police.

This decision was made in March, prior to the Brazilian President Jour Bolsonaro making an official visit to the White House.

On March 19, both President Donald Trump and President Bolsonaro announced that the requirement for a visa to visit Brazil would be lifted.

After the joint announcement, there was a 31% increase in flight searches from the U.S. to Brazil.

In the past few years, Brazil has been making a lot of changes to increase the number of tourists coming into the country.

In 2016, Brazilian officials announced they would temporarily waive visa requirements in hopes of travelers visiting for the Summer Olympics that year.

In January 2018, they launched an e-visa program which would allow U.S. citizens to get visas online for $44 instead of $160 (the usual cost.

Brazil’s largest airline, GOL, even launched new routes from Brazil to both Miami and Orlando.

Currently, American Airlines is the leading airline traveling to Brazil from the U.S.

About 6.5 million tourists visit Brazil annually but by 2022, they’re anticipating about 12 million tourists per year.

The U.S. does not have future plans on exempting Brazilians from the visa requirements to visit the U.S.
