In January of 2018, the electronic Brazilian system begins to apply also for Canadian, American and Japanese tourist applicants. Before the launch of this new system, tourists from these countries spent time and money commuting to Visa Centers and Brazilian consulates in their home countries just to apply for Brazilian entry visas.
“Visa facilitation aims to reduce bureaucracy and, above all, boost the entry of foreign tourists into Brazil,” said Tourism Minister, Marx Beltrão.
