USA travellers to Brazil jump 39% with visa waiver

The number of Americans booking flights to Brazil has jumped 39% since Jair Bolsonaro’s government waived a visa requirement for USA citizens in June, according to Embratur President Gilson Machado. With an annual budget that was increased by Bolsonaro to $120 million from $8 million, Embratur is planning to draw more tourists by launching a publicity campaign to sell Brazil as a new and safer country.
