Tourists coming from Australia, Canada, WE He Japan must, from 1 October this year, have a visa to enter Brazil. The ordinances determining the resumption of the document requirements were signed, this Wednesday morning, 3, by the president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva (PT). In 2019, the then president Jair Bolsonaro suspended visa requirements, even knowing that all four countries needed documents from Brazilians wishing to visit them. According to the current government, the resumption step is based on the principle of reciprocity and should have minimal impact on the tourism sector. In early March this year, Lula was already anticipating the resumption of visa requirements for the four countries. A government survey shows that there hasn’t been a significant increase in tourist flows since visa requirements were lifted. For the record, the Itamaraty informed that “Brazil does not provide visa exemption for unilateral visits, without reciprocity, to other countries”. The agency confirmed that “the Brazilian government will be prepared to proceed with negotiations, with the four named countries, a mutual visa waiver agreement”, says another part of the text.
