After Mexico introduced visa requirements for Brazilians on Aug. 18, 2022, the Brazilian passport dropped from 16th to 17th in the HelloSafe Brazil world ranking.
Brazilians can now enter 129 countries without first being checked or paying fees.
In 2023, when the European Travel Information and Authorization System (Etias) comes into effect, the Brazilian passport is expected to drop another five places, landing at 22nd in the rankings.
The protocol is scheduled to come into force in November.
It will be used to assess the profile of tourists wishing to travel for leisure purposes to countries in the Schengen area . . .
