As the world opens up, adventurous travelers like you need to stay up-to-date on the latest rules and regulations. That’s why we’re here to break down three key changes that could impact your upcoming trips.

The Brazilian Visa Requirement

For those planning trips to Brazil, here’s an important update! The Brazilian government has postponed the implementation of new visa requirements for U.S. citizens by one year. The previously announced changes, which would have made visas mandatory for all American travelers effective April 10, 2024, will now go into effect on April 10, 2025.

Beginning April 10, 2025, U.S. citizens will need to obtain a valid Brazilian visa prior to travel, regardless of the purpose or length of their visit. Travelers can check the latest entry requirements on the U.S. State Department’s Brazil travel information page. Our team will keep you informed as further details on the new visa protocols are released to ensure your future trips go smoothly.

New European Union Rules

Headed to Europe? Make sure your passport is up-to-date because the European Union has implemented some changes to its entry requirements. You can find all the details on the U.S. Department of State’s website. In addition, upcoming changes to the EU visa will be located on the ETIAS site.

The REAL ID Deadline is Approaching

Domestic travelers, listen up! The REAL ID Act is in full effect, and the deadline to upgrade your driver’s license or state ID is here. Starting May 2023, you’ll need a REAL ID-compliant ID to board any commercial flight within the United States. Head to the Department of Homeland Security’s website to learn more about the requirements and how to obtain your REAL ID before your next trip.
