FIJI AND BRAZIL SIGN VISA WAIVER AGREEMENT

8/27/2017
Fijian nationals holding an ordinary or official passport will no longer require a visa when entering Brazil following an agreement signed between the two countries.

Fiji's Ambassador to Brazil, Cama Tuiloma, signed the 'Visa Exemption Agreement' on behalf of the Fijian Government with the Brazilian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hon. Aloysio Nunes Ferreira. This development marks a new step in strengthening bilateral relations with Brazil - the largest economy in Latin America.

Fiji's Ministry of Foreign Affairs acting permanent secretary Mr Yogesh Karan commended this new development and highlighted the opportunities that a visa exemption agreement can bring.

"Brazil and Latin America have enormous potential - as a destination for Fijians to visit and conduct business in. This is a milestone achievement for Government because it allows Fijians to enter Brazil for these reasons without having to apply for a visa", Mr Karan said.

"This development also allows easy travel to both countries by Fijians and Brazilians - boosting tourism and people to people exchanges and in the process, growing our bilateral relations.
