Oi Tudo Bem? Indian and Chinese nationals should get used to hearing that phrase, as Brazil announced that they will be dropping visa requirements for both countries in the near future. The move comes as Brazil aims to make traveling the country easier and develop its tourism industry. Recently, Brazil made travel to the country visa free for American, Canadian and Japanese passport holders.

The news is still developing on whether travel to Brazil will be visa-free or a less restricted visa (like the visa on arrival or the eVisa) for Chinese and Indians nationals. We will update this post as soon as we find out.

Currently, Indian nationals can visit 29 countries visa free and the Chinese nationals can visit 38, so Brazil will make an amazing addition to the list. You can learn more about traveling internationally and visa free destinations for each country below.
