Jamaicans No Longer Require Visas to Enter Brazil

Jamaicans will now be able to travel to Brazil without a visa.

This after the Prime Minister’s cabinet inked an agreement that waives the visa requirement for nationals of  Brazil and Jamaica to travel between both countries.

“The arrangement will serve to deepen the bilateral trade ties between Jamaica and the Federal Republic of Brazil,” the government said.

“The visa-free regime will now allow free movement by nationals of Jamaica and Brazil across the borders of either country, thereby creating a platform for enhanced trade, business and tourism, and facilitating increased exchanges in culture, education and sports,” a Cabinet document said.

  

Cabinet also approved the conditional waiver of visa requirements for nationals of Guatemala who were holders of diplomatic and official passports, for up to 90 days.

No visa doesn’t mean that persons have a right to go to a country without any restrictions. Immigration officers still have the final say in how long you can stay. If you overstay and are caught, it’s straight deportation. Many hoops to jump thru still
