Brazil to End Visas on 17 June 2019

The Government of Brazil will end visa requirements for Canadian citizens on Monday 17 June 2019. 

After that date Canadian, Japanese, Australian and US passport holders will no longer need a visa to enter Brazil for short tourist and business stays. This is therefore limited to tourist and business and conferences and seminars, cultural programmes, scientific programmes, research activities, artist activities, amateur sports/athletics, transit, and other short-stay reasons which do not involve work.

Until that date all airlines and the Brazilian customs officials and border posts will require you to present your official Brazilian eVisa for inspection and stamping. 

You still need a Brazil eVisa until at least 18 June 2019 to fly, sail or drive to and enter Brazil.
