Mexico City, Mexico — As of August 18, Brazilian citizens will once again have to have a physical visa to enter Mexico. The Secretaries of Foreign Affairs made the announcement Wednesday.
In their announcement, they said that the Electronic Authorization System (SAE) has been eliminated, which allowed ordinary Brazilian passports holders to travel to Mexico for tourist, business and cultural purposes since December 11, 2021.
As of August 18, Brazilians who wish to travel to Mexico must comply with the requirements of the Mexican Consular in addition to requesting an appointment.
“These actions seek to strengthen safe, orderly and regular migration and eradicate disinformation campaigns that profit from migrants,” the federal government reported.
