Brazilian Tourist Visa Information

& Yellow Fever Injection Requirements

 

Brazil requires visitors to carry a valid passport and visa when traveling to Brazil for any purpose. You must obtain your Brazilian visa in advance from the Brazilian Embassy or consulate nearest to your place of residence. There are no "airport visas" and immigration authorities will refuse entry into Brazil to anyone not possessing a valid visa. 

Please, plan your visa application well in advance as Visas are not issued on the same day the application is received.

When applying in person: 5 to 10 business days, unless there is need for additional administrative process. In those cases, waiting time may be longer. When applying by mail: up to 15 business days, mailing time not included, unless there is need for additional administrative process. In those cases, waiting time may be longer. 

Note: Generally, tourists and business travelers may stay in Brazil for up to 90 days at a time. 

 

Please check the following website to see if your passport nationality requires getting a tourist visa for Brazil:
