PUEBLA, Mexico, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The governments of Mexico and Brazil have agreed to the exemption of the short-stay visas in ordinary passports for their citizens. The move is designed to increase the flow of travelers between the two nations.
The decision is the culmination of a series of negotiations between President Enrique Pena Nieto and Dilma Rousseff Coimbra, President of Brazil, as part of the Summit of the Community of Latin America and Caribbean States (CELAC), held last January in the city of Santiago de Chile.
The visa requirement for Brazilians had been in force since 2005, and from May 2010 Mexico applied CHM immigration to those citizens with a US visa; moreover, the Migration Documentation Information System (SIDOMI) and the System of Electronic Authorization (SAE) allowed Brazilian tourists and businessmen to obtain electronic visas.
This achievement will allow for an increase in visitors to Mexico from Brazil.
