Brazil waives visa fees for World Youth Day pilgrims

Catholic World News - November 13, 2012

The Brazilian government has announced that it will waive visa fees for pilgrims attending World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro next year.

Pilgrims traveling to Brazil with proper documentation from World Youth Day organizers will be able to enter the country without a fee beginning on July 28; the policy will remain in effect for 90 days.

Organizers emphasized that to qualify for the free entry visa, pilgrims will need documentation from the World Youth Day commission. They will then be able to download a form from Brazil's foreign ministry to qualify for the visa.
