Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said that the South American nation should lift its obligation to receive visas for visiting Chinese and Indian visitors or business people. Bolsonaro came to power at the start of the year, making it a rule for a number of developed countries to reduce visa requirements.
But the announcement, made during an official visit to Chinaa, is the first he has made expanding that policy to the developing world.
The Brazilian government removed visa requirements from the US, Canada, Japan, and Australia for visitors and business people earlier this year. Nevertheless, those countries did not drop their visa requirements for Brazilian citizens in exchange.
