Brazil Scolds Mexico for Visa Requirement and Threatens to Bar Country from Mercosur

The Brazilian Minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, commented today in New York about the measure recently adopted by Mexico under US pressure, requiring Brazilians to have entry visas, at the same time as the country is attempting to become a full member of the Mercosur.

In an interview with reporters at the headquarters of the United Nations (UN), the Minister said that Mexico’s attitude stands in the way of its participation in the trade bloc.


“I don’t consider this positive, because any restriction on people’s movement, most of all between fellow countries, is bad, since it thwarts business.”


Amorim and President Lula participated in the UN plenary session to evaluate the progress made towards fulfilling the eight goals established five years ago in the Declaration of the Millennium.

    I have read that this will go in effect on 26th of October. I hate to see this happen and I hate it even more that the usa may have had something to do with it. The usa being soooo mighty should not have to ask Mexico to help them if they can not watch their own borders. The south border of the usa has always been an easy way to get in the country. This is no one fault but the usa. If they cant control it, GIVE IT BACK TO MEXICO. Now to address the title of this comment. I am from the usa and cant wait to meet a very sweet woman that I have been talking to in Brasil. We will finally meet in Mexico one week before this restriction goes into effect. I cant wait to see her.
