Consulate Brazil

Applying for a visa to brazil, everything you must know about a brazilian tourist visa.

If you are a citizen of the United States, you need a visa in order to enter Brazil. If you are not a U.S. citizen, Brazil does have reciprocity agreements with a number of countries, and depending on your citizenship, a visa may or may not be needed in your particular case.

The most common type of visa is a tourist visa, although there are others, which we will cover later. The process of applying for a visa is somewhat involved, as you cannot simply have your passport stamped at the airport upon arrival. Brazilian immigration officials will simply not allow you into the country without a visa. You also need a valid U.S. passport that is not expiring in the next six months and has a blank page for the visa available.

A visa application must be submitted to the Consulate General of Brazil at an office that has consular jurisdiction over the state or territory where you reside. Most Consulate General offices will not accept visa applications by mail (although they will mail your passport and visa back to you if provided with a postage-paid envelope), and you should expect to make an appointment to appear at the Consulate in person or have an authorized third party appear on your behalf. If you do not live in an area near the Consulate General offices, you can use a visa processing service, such as a travel agency, authorized to handle such applications.

As of 2015, the fee for a tourist visa to Brazil for U.S. citizens is $160.00. If you cannot apply in person, you will have to pay an additional absentee fee. Using a visa processing company will likely include extra fees. The Consulate General accepts USPS money orders only and will not take cash or personal checks.

In addition to the money order and your passport, the following materials are required for processing your application:

  • •   A printed receipt page of the tourist visa application, which should be filled out online, prior to your visit to the Consulate;
  • •   A 2" x 2" passport picture, taken against a white background. Please glue the photo to the application receipt page;
  • •   Your flight itinerary or ticket copy, which must include your name, travel times, and the details of your arrival and departure;
  • •   a copy of your round-trip ticket or a booked itinerary showing travel to and from Brazil (confirming the purchase of the ticket, with passenger’s name, itinerary, flight number and arrival/departure dates);
  • •   Your driver’s license, or anything that can serve as proof of residence (such as a utility bill)

Once you are issued a tourist visa, you can travel to Brazil multiple times for up to 90 days per trip. Brazil tourist visas issued in the USA before May 28, 2010 are valid for five years. Visas issued in the USA on or after May 28, 2010 are valid for ten years under a reciprocal agreement between the United States and Brazil.

Do not sell your house, car or property, resign from your job or make non-refundable flight or other travel arrangements until you have received your immigrant visa.

If more information is needed

Sometimes a consular officer is unable to make a decision on a visa application because they need to review additional documents or the case requires further administrative processing. When additional documents are requested , the consular officer will give you a refusal letter that asks you to submit additional documents. The letter will include instructions on how to send those documents to the Embassy.

Administrative processing takes additional time after the interview. Most administrative processing is resolved within 60 days. However, the timing varies based on the circumstances of each case. Before inquiring about the status of administrative processing, please wait at least 60 days after your interview.

What happens after visa approval

Passport, Visa, and Sealed Immigrant Packet – We will place your immigrant visa on a page in your passport. Please review your visa to make sure there are no spelling errors. We will also give you a sealed envelope containing documents that you must give to U.S. immigration authorities when you arrive in the United States for the first time. Do not open this envelope. You must carry it with you; do not put it in your checked luggage. If you receive X-rays during your medical examination, carry those with you and give them to the U.S. immigration authorities.

USCIS Immigrant Fee – All individuals who are issued immigrant visas overseas must pay an Immigrant Fee to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) prior to traveling to the United States. This fee is for processing your residency status and printing your Permanent Resident Card. The only people exempt from paying this fee are: children entering the United States under the Hague Process, returning residents, and people traveling on a K visa.

When You Should Travel – You must enter the United States before the expiration date on your visa, which is usually six months from the date of printing. Your visa cannot be extended and all fees are nonrefundable. The principal applicant must enter before or at the same time as other family members with visas. Unless they are eligible for benefits under the Child Status Protection Act, children who are issued a visa before turning 21 years of age must enter the United States before their 21st birthday to avoid losing their immigrant status.

Getting a Green Card – Your Form I-551 Permanent Resident Card, also known as a green card, will be automatically mailed to the address in the United States that you write in your visa application form. This is a very important document that proves you have permission to reside in the United States. If you plan to travel outside the U.S. before your green card arrives: Please consult USCIS’s and CBP’s websites for rules about what documents you need to re-enter the country. We also recommend you check with the airline to ensure you are in compliance with their rules. Once your card is issued, you should not stay outside of the United States for more than one year. If you do, you will lose your status as a Lawful Permanent Resident.

Children’s Issues – In the United States, children are required to have certain vaccinations before they can enroll in school. We recommend that you bring your child’s complete vaccination records with you to the United States. If your child is adopted, you have full custody as a result of a divorce, or you share custody with another parent, you should bring a copy of all applicable adoption or custodial papers from the authoritative court in your home country. You will need these papers (translated into English) for issues such as school enrollment, medical care, and eventual citizenship.

Information for New Immigrants – Please visit the USCIS web page for helpful information on moving to the United States. You can read their publication “ Welcome to the United States: A Guide for New Immigrants ” online.

Diversity Visa Applicants - Additional Information

If you are interviewing for a Diversity Visa (DV), all of the above instructions apply to you. Please schedule and attend a medical examination prior to your visa interview; enroll in the required courier service ; and gather the required documents.

Below are additional instructions that apply only to DV applicants.

Bring to your interview

In addition to the documents listed on the Pre-Interview Checklist in this package, DV applicants should also bring the following items to your visa interview:

  • Appointment information printed from the “Entrant Status Check” on the E-DV website.
  • Documents showing that you have either a qualifying high school education OR have two (2) years of qualifying work experience in the last five years immediately prior to application (for the principal applicant only; more information is available online ).
  • Payment in cash of the $330 Diversity Visa Application Fee for each visa applicant.  

Review your DV Lottery entry

Prior to your visa interview, we recommend that you review the data on your initial E-DV entry. On your initial E-DV application, you must have correctly entered your marital status. If you are legally married you must have listed your spouse, even if you are currently separated from him/her (unless your spouse is a U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident).

Additionally, you must have listed ALL of your living children who are unmarried and under 21 years old. This includes your natural children, your spouse’s children, or children you have formally adopted in accordance with the laws of your country.

Failure to have listed an existing spouse or children at the time of your entry in the Diversity Visa lottery will result in the denial of your visa and visas for your family. Any fees paid to the U.S. government in support of your visa application(s) are nonrefundable. If you failed to include a child who had already been born, or a spouse to whom you were married when you entered the lottery, you should not proceed with the visa application. You can review the eligibility requirements online .

How Do I Get A Tourist Visa For Brazil

Published: November 19, 2023

Modified: December 28, 2023

by Lark Mcclanahan

  • Plan Your Trip

how-do-i-get-a-tourist-visa-for-brazil

Planning a trip to Brazil? If you’re a foreign visitor, you will likely need a tourist visa to enter this vibrant South American country. Brazil has a straightforward visa process, but it’s important to follow the correct steps to ensure a smooth and hassle-free application. In this article, we will guide you through the process of getting a tourist visa for Brazil, from preparing the necessary documents to submitting your application.

Why Do You Need a Tourist Visa for Brazil?

Before we dive into the application process, let’s understand why a tourist visa is required for Brazil. The Brazilian government requires foreign visitors to obtain a visa to control entry into the country and ensure the safety of both tourists and locals.

A tourist visa allows you to travel to Brazil for non-business related purposes, such as tourism, visiting family or friends, or participating in cultural or sports events.

Types of Tourist Visas for Brazil

There are two types of tourist visas available for Brazil:

  • The Electronic Visa (eVisa): This type of visa can be easily obtained online. It has a shorter processing time and is valid for up to two years, allowing multiple entries with a maximum stay of 90 days per visit.
  • The Traditional Visa: This visa requires an in-person application at a Brazilian consulate or embassy. It has a longer processing time but offers longer stays, up to 10 years, with each entry limited to a maximum stay of 90 days.

The choice between the eVisa and traditional visa depends on your travel plans and preferences. The eVisa is a convenient option for short trips and frequent visits, while the traditional visa is more suitable for longer stays and less frequent travel to Brazil.

Step 1: Preparing Required Documents

Before applying for a tourist visa, you need to gather the necessary documents. The general requirements include:

  • A valid passport with at least six months of remaining validity
  • A completed visa application form
  • A recent passport-sized photograph
  • Proof of travel arrangements, such as flight itineraries or hotel bookings
  • Proof of financial means to cover your stay in Brazil
  • Proof of travel insurance

Before we delve into the process of obtaining a tourist visa for Brazil, let’s understand why this documentation is necessary for foreign visitors. The Brazilian government requires tourists to obtain a visa to ensure control over entry into the country and to prioritize the safety and security of both tourists and locals.

A tourist visa is a legal document that allows you to travel to Brazil for non-business related purposes, such as tourism, visiting family or friends, or participating in cultural or sports events. It serves as proof that you have the necessary authorization to enter the country and stay for a specific period.

By requiring a tourist visa, Brazil ensures that visitors meet certain criteria and have the means to enjoy their stay without overstaying their permitted duration. This helps to prevent issues such as illegal immigration, unauthorized employment, and other potential security concerns.

Additionally, a tourist visa allows the Brazilian government to accurately monitor visitor statistics, which aids in the planning and development of tourism-related initiatives. It helps the government gather data on the number of tourists visiting the country, their countries of origin, and their duration of stay, which in turn facilitates the enhancement of tourism infrastructure and services.

Moreover, having a valid tourist visa for Brazil provides travelers with peace of mind and a sense of security. It ensures that you have gone through the appropriate application process and are compliant with the country’s immigration regulations. This reduces any potential risks or complications that may arise during your stay.

It’s important to note that the visa requirements and restrictions may vary depending on your nationality, the purpose of your visit, and the duration of your stay. Therefore, it is essential to carefully review the specific visa requirements for your country of residence or nationality before proceeding with the application process.

Overall, obtaining a tourist visa for Brazil is a necessary step for foreign visitors who wish to explore this beautiful country. It not only ensures compliance with immigration regulations but also allows for a smoother and more enjoyable travel experience, granting you the opportunity to immerse yourself in Brazil’s captivating culture, breathtaking landscapes, and vibrant cities.

When applying for a tourist visa for Brazil, it’s important to understand the different types of visas available. The two main types of tourist visas for Brazil are the Electronic Visa (eVisa) and the Traditional Visa. Each has its own set of requirements, processing times, and validity periods. Let’s explore these options in more detail:

  • Electronic Visa (eVisa): The eVisa is an electronic visa that can be easily obtained online. It offers convenience and a shorter processing time compared to the Traditional Visa. The eVisa is valid for up to two years, allowing multiple entries with a maximum stay of 90 days per visit. It is available for nationals of eligible countries, such as the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan, among others. To apply for an eVisa, you will need to complete an online application form, upload the required documents, and pay the visa fee online. Once approved, the eVisa will be electronically linked to your passport.
  • Traditional Visa: The Traditional Visa requires an in-person application at a Brazilian consulate or embassy. This type of visa has a longer processing time compared to the eVisa but offers longer stays and multiple entry options. The validity period can range from 1 to 10 years, depending on the consular officer’s decision. However, each entry is limited to a maximum stay of 90 days. The Traditional Visa is suitable for individuals who plan to stay in Brazil for an extended period or require multiple entries within a longer timeframe. The application process involves completing a visa application form, providing the necessary documentation, and attending an appointment at the consulate or embassy.

It’s important to note that visa requirements and availability may vary based on your nationality and country of residence. It’s recommended to visit the official website of the Brazilian consulate or embassy in your country or consult with a visa service provider to determine which type of visa is applicable to your situation.

Whether you choose the eVisa or the Traditional Visa, both options enable you to explore the wonders of Brazil as a tourist. Consider your travel plans, desired stay duration, and entry requirements when deciding which visa option is most suitable for your needs.

Now that we have explored the types of tourist visas available for Brazil, let’s move on to the step-by-step process of obtaining a tourist visa.

Before you can apply for a tourist visa for Brazil, you need to gather the necessary documents. It’s essential to ensure that all the required documents are prepared and meet the specific requirements of the Brazilian consulate or embassy where you will be submitting your application.

If you’re planning to obtain your flight reservation for visa without paying for the ticket, all you have to do is follow the 3 simple steps below:

  • Receive flight itinerary in email

Flight reservation without payment

Step 4: Submitting your file

When the day arrives for you to attend your appointment, arrive early at the embassy or consulate you are dealing with. There will be many people with scheduled appointments, so if you are late you may have to make a new one and this could delay your travel plans.

You may not think that dressing correctly is important when you attend your interview, but it will go a long way to making a good impression with the visa officials, so use common sense and don’t turn up in clothes that are too casual for the occasion.

Please, remember to take ALL your paperwork including photocopies. The office cannot be expected to make a correct decision about whether to approve your visa if there is anything missing.

When your appointment begins, the staff will examine your application and supporting documents. If they are unsure of anything you have stated, they may ask you extra questions. Be assured, they are not trying to catch you out, they are simply gathering all the necessary information in order to make an informed decision, so answer any questions honestly. The questions asked could be:

  • What do you do in your country?
  • We don’t think you will return home after your trip to Brazil. What’s your answer to that?
  • Are you meeting anyone in Brazil?
  • What do you know about Brazil?

When you are at the embassy or consulate, you will also have to pay the correct fee for your visa. The fee is usually paid by money order payable to the consulate general, but you should check the requirements before you get there because some consulates may allow you to pay by cashier’s check or cash. There may also be a service fee to pay too. These fees are non-refundable even if your application is refused.

Brazil Visa Fee

Step 5: receive your visa.

When a decision has been made on your application, you will be notified by the particular Brazilian Embassy or Consulate you are dealing with. You should be able to collect your passport from the respective office or you can arrange for it to be mailed to you.

Hopefully, you’ll find your Brazil visa in your passport. If not, there would have been a reason why it hasn’t been accepted.

  • Errors on the application form
  • Photo does not meet correct specifications
  • Purpose of the trip not clear
  • Incorrect type of visa
  • Missing information
  • Passport invalid

You must apply for the correct type of visa, so it’s important to spend time looking at the website of the embassy or consulate where you will be submitting your application. You must provide all the requested documents and there should be no errors – such as names being spelled wrong, so it’s important to check the documents before signing. Your passport should meet the required guidelines – i.e. being valid for 6 months after your trip. If it isn’t, you should apply for a new passport before you start your visa application. Also, you must make it clear why you are traveling to Brazil and provide the necessary documents to prove this. Lastly, the photo you must provide should comply with the guidelines.

Here is the link again for the list of Brazilian Embassies and Consulates around the world:   www.itamaraty.gov.br/en/brazilian-missions-abroad

1) Do I need a visa to go to Brazil?

Depending on your nationality, you may need a visa if you wish to travel to Brazil. See the list of countries mentioned above or you can go to the consular services portal of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Brazil .

2) Can I send my application by mail?

Most Brazilian Embassies or Consulates do not accept applications by mail. However, you should check with the one you are dealing with because they may allow you to do so in certain circumstances

3) How soon can I apply for my Brazil visa?

You can apply no more than 4 months before your departure date. However, you should check with the embassy or consulate you are dealing with as their rules may be different. It is recommended that applications are received 2-12 weeks before your trip to allow plenty of time for processing

4) Can I get a visa upon arrival in Brazil?

No. Unless, you are from a country that can enter Brazil without a visa, you must ensure that you have an approved visa before you arrive

5) Can I apply with a copy of my passport?

No. When you submit your documents, your passport should be the original and a copy should also be provided. The embassy or consulate will keep your passport while your application is being processed and will be returned to you once a decision has been made

6) I have already been to Brazil, can I visit again using the same visa?

The visit visa is valid for multiple entries, so you can enter the country again as long as your previous visit was within 90 days. It’s best to check with the visa authority you dealt with for clarification

7) I need a visa for Brazil tomorrow! Can this be arranged?

No. Your application will take up to 5 days to be processed. Rush processing is not an option. You must apply well in advance of your trip

Once you know where to apply, there are just 5 easy steps to follow when you apply for your Brazil visa:

  • Make an appointment
  • Complete your application form
  • Prepare the required documents
  • Submit your file
  • Receive your visa

That’s it! 5 steps stand between you and your departure to Brazil!

Brazil is a popular travel destination that welcomed over 6 million visitors in 2019.

Foreign nationals from over 100+ countries can enter Brazil visa-free and stay for a maximum of 90 days in Brazil.

Brazil visas on arrival and e-Visas are not available to any foreign national at this time. Brazil visa applicants can apply for single or multiple entry, and Brazil visa validity periods depend on the traveler’s nationality and purpose of their trip. Brazil visas are normally multiple entry and allow for a 90-day stay. Travelers wanting to stay in Brazil beyond 90 days must apply for an extension with the Brazil Federal Police.
