Abstract: The research explores the challenges of the free circulation of people for tourism purposes with the implementation of the Corredor Bioceânico that will link Chile, Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil. The research was done through a bibliographical and documentary survey, and interview to tour operators and travelers. The results reveal existing obstacles to the movement of people in these countries, which may be reproduced in the section expected for the corridor, and point out the need to establish new agreements to increase the comfort and safety of tourists in the corridor.
