Brazil has postponed the implementation of its new travel visa requirements for American visitors until 2025. The visa requirement, which was previously set to go into effect on April 10th of this year, will now be implemented on April 10th, 2025, as announced by the US Embassy & Consulates in Brazil. Tourists from Australia and Canada will also be required to obtain a visa to visit Brazil, according to Visit Rio.

Joao H. Rodrigues, the US representative for Visit Rio, expressed his appreciation for the government's decision to delay the visa requirement. He noted that in the first two months of 2024, the arrival of Americans in Brazil was 11% higher compared to the same period in the previous year. Rodrigues expects that without the visa requirement, the growth in foreign tourist arrivals, especially from the United States, Canada, and Australia, visiting Brazil and Rio de Janeiro will be maintained.

When the new visa requirement does take effect in 2025, American travelers will need to obtain an electronic visa (e-visa) to enter Brazil. The e-visa will cost $80.90 per person and will be valid for 10 years, as per the information provided by the US Embassy & Consulates in Brazil.

Roughly 5 years after the country did away with visa requirements for US tourists staying up to 90 days, they've decided to reinstate those visa rules.

While Brazil is bringing back visa rules for American travelers next year, some other countries are actually making it simpler for US citizens to visit. For instance, Turkey eliminated visa requirements earlier this year for both American and Canadian travelers. China also eased the process by no longer requiring US visitors to provide proof of a return flight, hotel booking, itinerary, or invitation letter when applying for a tourist visa.

There are many other countries where Americans can travel without needing to obtain a visa beforehand, including numerous European, Caribbean, Central American, and South American destinations.

If you use your own car to reach the airport, you know it's critical to park it safely for the duration of your trip. Almost every airport has special on-site parking for this purpose.

What is actually off-site parking, and which advantages has this parking type, you may ask? So let's take a closer look at this question.

First of all, off-site parking is much cheaper. So you can save money and then spend the most considerable amount on the things you really want to try or see while traveling.

Secondly, off-site parking services are faster. It might seem that it's faster to park your car at the airport, but that's not always the case. Off-site parking offers you the following convenience: when you drive directly up to the entrance, a staff member pulls your luggage out of your vehicle and loads it into the shuttle. Then they park your car for you. After your baggage is loaded, you can take your seat in the shuttle, which will bring you and your bags to the airport. It's a hassle-free option that is usually faster.
