hello Tiago. I am brazilian and I`ve been working on boats since 2006 and I `ve never had a problem with visas. I got my B1 to be able to enter in the us, i traveled around the caribbean and the the only island that i paid for a working visa was grenada...but only that: u pay and that`s it! In the med it is ok also...
