Japan's visa exemption for Brazilian business visitors to go into effect on 30 September 2023

Effective 30 September 2023, Brazilian nationals will be able to enter Japan without a visa for multiple purposes, including business and tourism. On 10 August 2023, the Japanese government announced that the visa exemption – which is scheduled to remain in effect for three years initially – will apply to holders of ordinary Brazilian passports who enter the country for business or tourism. These individuals will be allowed to remain in Japan for up to 90 days per entry, subject to the discretion of the immigration authorities at the port of entry.
