(May 03, 2013) Brazil and Mexico recently signed a new agreement to mutually end the use of visas. The agreement enters into force on May 16, 2013. Pursuant to the agreement, Brazilians and Mexicans no longer need to apply for visas to enter the other country for visits lasting less than 90 days, for the purposes of tourism, sports, business, medical treatment, commercial events, transit, or any other unpaid activity. Visas are still required for students. A previous agreement on the matter had existed until 2005, when it was suspended; it is now back in force.
