SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – The President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, sanctioned on Tuesday a bill that allows the Ministries of Tourism and Foreign Relations to determine the exemption of entrance visas to tourists coming to see the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.
According to the Ministry of Tourism the decision could lead to a twenty percent increase in foreign tourists to Brazil during the games. The visa requirement would be exempt for tourists entering Brazil until September 18th, 2016 and valid for ninety days. 

Citizens from the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan are those set to be exempted from visa requirements for next year's Olympics and Paralympics.
