The European Commission adopted today draft decisions on short-stay visa waiver agreements between the EU and Brazil. Thereby, all European citizens would be able to travel to Brazil visa-free.
"Once these agreements enter into force, they will have real positive impact on the everyday life of our citizens, especially of the citizens of Estonia, Latvia, Malta and Cyprus which for the time being still need a visa to travel to Brazil", said EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmström.
The draft decisions have to be approved by the Council before they can enter into force. Read more in the press release.
