Brazil - Uruguay

Border between Chuí/Brazil and Chuy/Uruguay. Basically is the same city and an avenue division is the border. Brazil is on the left, Uruguay on the right.



Viewing Uruguay from Brazil. Spanish words and a Casino, which is prohibited in Brazil!



Border on the road BR-471 that bypass the centre of the twin towns. Brazilian sign.



Welcome to Uruguay!



Reverse of the above gantry.

Wow, very interesting, I didn't know that the border between the two countries is essentially uncontrolled. So technically, it is possible to cross the border at this point (in the town) simply by walking across, and there won't be legal implications?

BTW, I've crossed the Dutch-Belgium border 22 times in some 15 minutes yesterday. In presumably the only village in the world shard by 2 countries, Baarle:



Purple line is my route, the red squares are border crossings

Here you have another Brazil/Uruguay border...

Brazil and the city of Santana do livramento is on the left side of the street and Uruguay and the city of Rivera on the right



and this is the BI-national square...





that couple up there is right in the border hehe


And this is the most spectacular border on earth...



The waterfalls on the left and that sidewalk are in Brazil... The bigger waterfalls at the back is the argentinian side

Very interesting! Is there some schengen-like treaty between the two countries? Since when is it open like this? Maybe its even older than the european situation.

Cool! Looks similar to the Canada-US border in the area of the Niagara Falls, but more natural and untouched (the Niagara Falls area is very built-up and is flooded with tourists).

No, because Mercosul agreements between Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. There are some expanded agreements with Chile too. It´s a kind of baby EU, has only 13 years and a lot of thing has to be done yet. But allows free circulation of people between the countries, you only need your ID card.

There are some customs controls but they are only really stricted on Paraguay border, since this country is a kind of tax free heaven and an excellent place to buy cheap electronics!

Well, in Europe (Schengen area) we also need ID by ourselves constantly, even in our own countries, but there's no control at the borders. So is there really no control at the borders between Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, (Paraguay and Chile)?

Yes, there is a control where they only ask to see your ID. But in twin cities, like this one I showed on the photos, there´s no control inside the city. There are checkpoints on both sides on the roads around the cities where you must show your ID. But cargo transportation must stop for customs in every border.

You asked me before about road images, everytime I travel and got some I post here! There are some photos by me on Brazilian Highways and Uruguay Highways threads!

Today I crossed the old border crossing Šentilj/Spielfeld (on ordinary road) between Slovenia and Austria. There was no control at the border (doh), but Austrian cops were everywhere.
