According to the data shared by Brazil Tourism, the country’s e-visa programme has been a huge success in leading to a record of tourists for the year 2018. This poses several lessons for countries like India.
For instance, Brazil Tourism cites that US arrivals to the country based on the e-visa programme had increased by 13.3 per cent, which is a significant increase that paved the way for Brazil to increase its overall number of visitors in a single year. Other countries such as Canada have also contributed to the increase of tourists to Brazil. No wonder, the overall number of tourists to the country has increased from 6.5 million to 6.6 million in just one year.
