Brazil's tourism president on the aftermath of Rio's Olympic Games
More than 56 per cent of arrivals flying into Brazil for the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games were visiting the country for the first time, according to a survey released by the Brazilian Tourism Board. In addition, the 541,000 international tourists who entered the country from July 1 to Aug. 15 represent an increase of 157,000 people over the same period last year. Part of that is due to the visa waiver for visitors from the United States, Canada, Japan and Australia that was implemented specifically for the Games. The waiver impacted 74.7 per cent of foreigners who came to Brazil to attend Olympic sporting events.
