FMR Brazil President Bolsonaro Applies For US Tourist Visa

After the riot on January 10, 2023 in Brazil, Mr. Bolsonaro didn’t accept responsibility for the incident; instead, he applied for a U.S. Tourist Visa for himself. Since December 30, He has stayed in Florida and has expressed a desire to travel nationwide. The radical rightists stormed the government buildings on January 10, similar to how the radical right stormed the U.S. Capitol in the January 6 incident.

The former president Mr. Bolsonaro’s lawyer, Felipe Alexandre told BBC, “he devoted 34 years of his life to public service” and would “like to take some time off”.

Mr. Bolsonaro came to the US with an A-1 visa for diplomats and heads of state which is 30 days visa that expired today. He doesn’t want to go back to the country where the January 10th events are under investigation right now. Mr. Alexandre said Mr. Bolsonaro hopes to “clear his head and enjoy being a tourist in the United States for a few months before deciding what his next step will be”.

Mr. Bolsonaro, the rightist leader of the country, has faced criticism for the incident following the 2022 general election defeat against leftist leader Lula da Silva. His visa status is pending, and Washington DC is considering the ramifications of approving the former Brazilian President’s visa status.
