Brazil announces eligibility for 10-year visas for business, tourism and family visits for Chinese nationals

Brazil recently signed an agreement with China Mainland that allows Chinese nationals to obtain Brazilian visas that are valid for up to 10 years (up from five years currently) for business, tourism or family visit purposes. Effective 19 February 2024, the 10-year visas authorize their holders to stay in Brazil for up to 90 days in a 12-month period and extend their stay for up to a total of 180 days in a 12-month period starting from the date of the holder’s first entry into the country. These visas are not available to individuals traveling to Brazil to conduct paid work, journalistic assignments, studies, or missionary or religious activities.
