Rio Olympic Games visa requirements waived

Rio Olympic Games

Canadian visitors to the Rio Olympic Games this summer are exempt from a visa to enter Brazil during the period of June 1st to September 18, 2016. This exception applies only and exclusively to tourist travelers with America, Australian, Japan and Canadian passport holders for a period of up to 90 days.

The reason no doubt is to increase tourism attendance during the Rio Olympic Games as they have set a goal of increasing visitor visits by 20% during the summer months. For more details, contact your local Brazilian embassy.
