Canadians no longer need a visa to travel to Brazil
On Monday, the Brazilian government announced it was waiving visa requirements for travellers from Canada, the United States, Australia and Japan in the hope of boosting tourism.
The new policy will take effect on June 17 and will mean Canadians will be able to stay in Brazil for 90 days without a visa. Up until that point, however, Canadians will still be required to obtain e-visas before travelling to Brazil.
The federal government’s travel advice for Brazil warns that Canadians should “exercise a high degree of caution” when travelling there due to the country’s high crime rates and “regular incidents of gang-related and other violence in urban areas.”
