Even though Brazil doesn’t have an open immigration policy, it is easy to get the visa to enter the country. The people of neighboring countries such as Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, among others, can enter Brazil with the official I.D card of their home country. Tourists coming from many European countries only need a valid passport and a return ticket. A tourist visa is requested to people who come from countries that request visas to Brazilians; this is a common reciprocity rule in the world of diplomacy.

It is recommended to apply for a tourist visa as much as three months ahead of a trip to Rio. The tourist visa allows visitors to stay for three months and they can renew it if necessary. A transit visa is recommended for business visitors because it is easier to obtain and allows them to stay for ten days.

Brazil has diplomatic relations with most of the world capital cities; embassies or consulates will provide all the necessary information for visas applications.

Below is a list of the required documents to apply for a Brazilian visa:

1.    Applicant’s passport, valid for no less than 6 months
2.    Soiled, damaged or defaced passports will not be accepted
3.    Duly filled and signed visa application form
4.    One passport-size photograph
5.    Originals and one complete set of photocopies of: return or onward ticket or proof of means of support during the applicant’s stay in Brazil (recent bank and credit card statements, pay slips, are accepted as proof).
6.    Certificate of vaccination, where necessary
7.    For applicants participating in conferences, seminars, artistic or sports events, a letter from the organizers.
8.    Receipt of payment of the consular fee.
9.    Foreign nationals whose visa applications must be submitted to the Brazilian Ministry of External Relations are subject to an additional fee.

Please remember that visitors under 18 years old, when not being accompanied by both parents, must have a birth certificate and a declaration signed by the parents authorizing the journey, and must present the name and the address of a Brazilian person who is responsible for them.
