Brazil is known for its famous beaches like Copacabana and Ipanema; the longest river which is the mystical Amazon River and the tallest statue of Christianity, the Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro. A lot of tourists also visited the country because of the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Good news for those who wants to see and experience the festive welcoming of Brazil. Just this year, the government announces that they are considering waiving the visas of tourists from Australia, Japan, Canada and the United States. It was designed to improve the tourism of the country.

In a report by The Rio Times, "According to the Ministry of Tourism's annual survey, based on the number of visas issued in 2015, these four countries accounted for 759,087 visitors to Brazil last year."

"In 2015, the U.S. sent 575,796 tourists to Brazil. This was second-highest total of any country, other than Argentina, who sent more than two million visitors to Brazil, which was over thirty percent of all the visitors to the country."

"Significantly, the Ministry's figures also showed that American tourists are, on average, the highest spending visitors in the country. The typical American tourist in Brazil spends upwards of forty percent more than any other tourist, US$125 a day compared to US$87 a day for other tourist nationalities," they added.

Tourism Minister Marx Beltrao proposed the program. It would extend for a 12-month trial period. However, the exemptions would become perpetual if the four countries will also remove Brazilians' visa requirements and if the number of tourist rises, specifically those that came from the said nations.

According to Traveller, "Brazil's President Michel Temer is keen to draw more foreign investment and visitors to Brazil to help pull Latin America's largest nation from its worst recession since the 1930s Great Depression."

The government is also looking at the possibility of waiving Chinese visas as well. This is to attract more tourists because on 2015, only 55,000 visitors from the said country came to see Brazil.

There are a lot of nations that welcomes Brazilians without needing a visa like New Zealand, Argentina Philippines, Peru and Malaysia.
