Brasilia: Emirati holders of diplomatic, special, official and service passports will be exempted from visa requirements to enter Brazil, according to an agreement signed on between the UAE and Brazil.
The visa waiver agreement was signed during a visit by Shaikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, to Brazil where he met Aloysio Nunes, Brazilian Minister of Foreign Relations, on Thursday to discuss ways of enhancing bilateral relations.
During the visit, three accords on air transport services and reciprocal exemption of entry visa requirements were signed.
The talks focussed on advancing the UAE-Brazil relations in economic, investment, trade, tourism and renewable energy sectors.
Both also exchanged views on issues of common interest in light of regional and international developments, in Yemen, Syria, Libya and Iraq in particular.
Relations between the UAE and Brazil are strong and there is continued interest in advancing them in all spheres, Shaikh Abdullah stressed.
