The Brazilian and Mexican governments have agreed to resume allowing citizens of the other country to apply for e-visas for tourist and business travel.

Key Points:

  • The Brazilian and Mexican foreign ministers announced they will resume use of e-visas for citizens of each country for tourist and business travel in the upcoming months.
  • Until the new system goes into effect, Brazilians may enter Mexico with a valid visa or if they are permanent residents of Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States or some Schengen Area countries.

Additional Information: The governments have not yet announced when the agreement will go into effect. The countries previously had a mutual e-visa agreement, but Mexico suspended e-visas for Brazilian nationals in August 2022.
