Tourism Minister García proposes Latin American Schengen-style visa
Tourism Minister Francisco Javier García, speaking in Madrid, Spain during the 2017 International Tourism Fair (Fitur 2017) called for Latin American countries to agree to a Schengen-style visa in order to stimulate more multi-destination visits in the region and make the region more attractive to international visitors. It would have a significant positive impact on the tourism industry in the region.
García says he has encouraged the World Tourism Organization to use its leadership to secure free transit throughout the Americas. The program would exclude the United States that has special rules regarding security issues. Garcia said the project has been well received. He called the project the Americas Union for Travel in All of Latin America and the Caribbean.
