The end of the Brazilian side of the trail — the Devil’s Throat, Iguazu Falls.

I just returned from Brazil and saw just two tiny parts of the country, Iguazu Falls and São Paulo.

Travel practicalities

Note that Brazil requires nationals of many countries including Canada and the U.S. to have a visa. The process is fairly lengthy, and requires a letter from your employer and some detailed financial information.

However, Brazil is waiving the visa requirement for citizens of Canada, the U.S., Australia and Japan for visits that take place exclusively between June 1 and September 18, 2016.

  1. The Brazilian government is considering waiving visas in the future for several countries since it was successful for the Olympics.

    • Thanks Jim. Yes, several countries could visit Brazil visa-free in the months surrounding the Olympics. I’d love to hear that it is permanently waived!
