Potentially great news for me and everyone who wants to visit Brazil! Brazil is considering a no visa policy for US, Australian, Canadian, and Japanese citizens. As I wanted to visit while I was in S America to see if I could pick up Portuguese while I was out that way, I was blocked by a $160 visa fee and having to send my passport off. I didn’t understand WHY this was so considering all the other countries I looked at in S America did not require a visa before arriving. This will help out Brazil’s tourism greatly. They better do it while I’m out that way!
