Brazil has adopted a policy of reciprocity regarding visas. This means nationals of countries requiring visas for Brazilian citizens will need a visa to travel to Brazil. According to Brazilian law, Brazil must agree, on a reciprocal basis, to offer visa waivers to nationals of another country. Brazil has signed visa exemption agreements with about 90 countries.

Where to apply for a visa?

Itamaraty (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) is the body of the Brazilian government responsible for granting visas, which occurs through the Embassies, General Consulates, Consulates and Vice consulates of Brazil abroad. Take note that the Brazilian visa will never be granted in Brazilian territory. Therefore, obtaining your visa in airports, ports of entry, or any other point of the Brazilian border is impossible. Itamaraty and the Federal Police (agency responsible for immigration control in Brazilian borders) cannot and will not authorize the entry of foreign nationals who do not have the proper visa.

Visit Visa

The visit visa will be issued to foreigners traveling to Brazil for a stay of up to 90 days without purposes of immigration or the exercise of paid activity (daily allowances, artistic paychecks, compensation or other travel expenses are allowed). Visit visas can be granted for those traveling for tourism, business, transit, artistic or sports activities, study, volunteer work, or to attend conferences, seminars or meetings, among other purposes – provided there is no remuneration in Brazil and the stay does not exceed 90 days.
