Jair Bolsonaro applies for a six-month visa to stay in the United States


The far-right former Brazilian president had traveled to Florida two days before the inauguration of his successor Lula.

Jair Bolsonaro could return to Brazil “tomorrow or in six months or never (…).

Nothing is planned, “said the son of the former president this weekend.

It would seem that the first option is not considered.

The far-right ex-head of state, who flew to Florida two days before Lula's January 1 inauguration, has applied for a six-month visa to stay in the United States, a lawyer said on Monday. .

His current visa, reserved for diplomats, should soon expire, says the Financial Times.

Bolsonaro's request was received by US authorities on Friday.

It comes at a time when the former head of state and his relatives are the subject of several investigations in Brazil.

A Brazilian judge has notably decided to include Bolsonaro in the investigation which aims to determine who is behind the ransacking of Brazilian institutions.

“He is very serene”, says his son

On January 8, thousands of Bolsonaro supporters, unhappy with Lula da Silva's victory in the October 2022 presidential election, invaded and vandalized the presidential palace, Congress and the Supreme Court.

“There is nothing legally that implicates Bolsonaro.

Justice is not the place of a political trial.

He is very calm because he knows that there is no way to link him to a criminal act, ”said his son, Flavio Bolsonaro, who is also a senator, on Saturday.

Aged 67, the ex-president could soon undergo a new surgery "to still repair (his) intestine", according to the parliamentarian.

Since a knife attack in 2018 during an electoral trip, Jair Bolsonaro had undergone several operations for a recurrent intestinal obstruction.
