Visa-free entry for Americans, Australians, Canadians and the Japanese

Written by | Migration Law

On 18 March 2019, Presidential Decree 9,731/2019 was published in Brazil’s Federal Gazette. The Decree provides that Australian, Canadian, American and Japanese citizens will no longer be required to obtain visas prior to entering Brazil for:

  • business;
  • tourism;
  • transit;
  • artistic and sporting activities; and
  • “exceptional situations of national interest”.

Entry will be allowed for up to 90 days with a maximum of 180 days for each 12-month period.

This is yet another positive step towards making Brazil a better place to do business.

The new rules come into force on 17 June 2019.
