Brazil and Mexico Agree to Mutual e-Visa System

The governments of Brazil and Mexico have agreed to establish a mutual e-visa system, with a view to eventually resuming the visa waiver agreement between the two countries.

The e-visa is intended to simplify applications by Brazilian and Mexican nationals for visitor visas for tourism or business in each other’s countries. Further details are not yet available.

In December 2021, Mexico cancelled the visa waiver for Brazilian nationals; in August 2022, Mexico revoked the e-visa option for Brazilian nationals.

Mexican nationals can currently enter Brazil for tourism or business for stays of up to 90 days, which can be extended for another 90 days.
