A Step Towards Integration in South America?
Last week twelve (12) countries in South America signed an agreement
that is expected to enter into effect in ninety (90) days that will
allow citizens of the twelve countries to travel to the other signatory
countries without a visa. The twelve counties who have signed the
agreement are: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador,
Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Many of these countries already allow visa free travel; however,
citizens of Colombia, Peru and Ecuador, who frequently require visas to
travel to neighboring countries, will greatly benefit by this agreement.
