Brazil has been easing up on its visa policy in recent years. Last January, it introduced the eVisa, which allowed Americans, Japanese, Australians and Canadians to apply for the document online and skip the trip to the Brazilian consulate. The fee also dropped from $160 to the cost of two bottles of cachaça rum. Since the change, the government has noticed a spike in visa applications, from 169,910 in 2017 to 229,767 last year.
Of all coincidences, LATAM, which flies all over South America, has designated Brazil its Destination of the Month. In addition, the Brazilian airline Gol is offering sale fares to several Brazilian cities from Orlando and Miami through June.
