• Brazil Waives Entry Visa Requirements For Some •
Good news for travelers looking to visit Brazil in the near future — The Brazilian government has announced that visa-free entry will become available to citizens of the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan, effective June 17, 2019.
On that date, residents from those four countries with a valid passport will be permitted to stay in Brazil for 90 days from their date of first entry per day, with the possibility of extending their stay without exceeding 180 days. So officially after June 16, 2019, these citizens will no longer need to apply or pay for a visa.
If you still need to obtain a Visa to visit Brazil:
Upon request, the Secretariat will provide an invitation letter to participants via email to be included with your Visa application: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
For those who still need a visa, please contact the nearest Brazilian agency below:
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.
*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.
