Brazil's visa exemption for Japanese business visitors to go into effect on 30 September 2023
Effective 30 September 2023, Japanese nationals will be able to enter Brazil without a visa for business or tourism. On 9 August 2023, the Brazilian government announced that the visa exemption – which is scheduled to remain in effect for three years initially – will apply to holders of ordinary Japanese passports who enter the country for business or tourism. These individuals will be allowed to remain in Brazil for up to 90 days per entry and up to 180 days cumulatively per 12-month period.
