After the increase in the number of Brazilians entering the United States illegally, the Mexican government decided to re-apply for visas for Brazilian citizens who wish to enter the country as visitors.
The draft resolution was published last Thursday (14) on the website of the National Regulatory Development Authority, an agency of the Mexican government. Currently, log in Mexico For travel or business, Brazilians only need to show their passport.
The type of document, according to the draft, will be an electronic visa for Brazilians who arrive in Mexico by air. To enter by land or sea, the visa must be processed at the Mexican Consulate.
The current visa exemption between Brazil and Mexico has been in effect since 2013.
A no-demand agreement was earlier, but the Mexican first halted it in 2005; At that time, Brazil used the reciprocal policy and began to demand the document.
Now, with visas withdrawn from Brazilians, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s government is responding to US pressure while Democrat Joe Biden’s government faces an immigration crisis on its southern border.
Recently, images of thousands of Haitian immigrants in a makeshift shelter under a bridge in the Texas border town of Del Rio and threats from clients on horseback have had international repercussions for the US government.
The Biden government later expedited the deportation of Haitians. He asked if they could live in Brazil or have Brazilian children.
According to the authors, the Mexican hopes that the new travel rules will encourage people to travel to the United States.
Under Mexican rules, there are a number of exceptions that do not affect the flow of tourists and businesses. For example, travelers with a residence permit or a visa from the following countries will be exempted from the visa: Canada, the United States, Japan, the United Kingdom and the European countries that make up the Schengen area.
The growing influx of Brazilians trying to enter the United States worries the local government, the federal police and the Biden government. Authorities in Brazil and the United States say crossing the land is the biggest risk and that most migrants are being held on both sides of the border. (respect)
