• We suggest you work on getting your visa as soon as possible to avoid any delays •

Citizens of some countries (including the US) will need a Brazilian entry visa. Upon request, the Secretariat will provide an invitation letter to participants via email to be included with your VISA application:

Passports must be valid for at least 6 (six) months from the date of your departure to Brazil.

Participants are strongly advised to make sure they fulfill all legal requirements to enter in Brazil. Besides a valid passport, an entry visa may also be required. Because of the diplomacy principle of reciprocity, Brazil requires a visa for citizens from countries that require a visa from Brazilian citizens. Please check with your nearest Brazilian Consulate.

The Visa is not required for most European and Latin American countries and Russia, but for the USA, Canada, China, Australia and Japan, among others, a Visa is required. To apply for a visa please contact to the nearest Brazilian:

The need for a visa to Brazil depends on your nationality and NOT on the country where you live or from where you are traveling to Brazil. If your nationality is from Australia, Japan, Canada or USA you can apply for your eVisa (Electronic Visa).

*Please also, take notice that the Brazilian government may change these diplomatic conditions without warning. PLEASE CHECK with the nearest Brazilian Embassy or Consulate in your country.
