Brazilian Visa Requirements

Brazil requires U.S. citizens to carry a valid U.S. passport and a Brazilian 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 in the United States. This requirement means, for example, that if you live in LA but happen to be in NY, you cannot get your Brazilian visa from the NY Brazilian consulate.

There are no "airport visas" and immigration authorities will refuse entry into Brazil to anyone not possessing a valid visa. The U.S. government cannot assist you if you arrive in Brazil without proper documentation.

New Brazilian eVisa

In January 2018 Brazil launched a new eVisa system for citizen of the U.S., Canada, Austrailia, and Japan.

After a rough start to this new program, the Brazil eVisa is settling down and outputing the eVisas as it was originally intended by Brazil.

Below is a video that describes the differences between the traditional paper Visas from Brazil, and the new eVisa from Brazil.

The eVisas applications are much easier than the traditional paper visa applications. You may obtain an eVisa for either Tourist or Business, or a host of other visa classifications (medical treatment, journalism, transit, sports, etc).

Traditional Paper Brazilian Visas

The traditional paper Brazilian Visas are more challenging to obtain. While these visas last for 10 years for US citizens, the number of documents required - some must be in Portuguese, is extensive, and in some ways, daunting.

ItsEasy can certainly help you obtain a Brazilian paper Visa - in fact, we recommend you absolutely use ItsEasy to assist with the paperwork requirements for a Brazil paper visa.

Due to these extensive requirements, all paper visas for Brazil will require our Document Pre-Check service - so that we may preview all of your Brazil paper work before you send us your application packet.

ItsEasy maintains the visa requirements to all countries, including Brazil. Use the widget above to see your particular requirements for visiting Brazil based upon your citizenship and state of residence in the USA.

Brazil Tourist Visa Requirements

Special Information About Brazil Embassy/Consulate

Special Note:

Brazil does not require visas for US citizens traveling for the purpose of tourism or business for stays of up to 90 days.

1.1  Passport

Applicant must submit their current, signed passport. Visas are stamped into a passport, therefore the original passport is required.

1.2  Copy of Passport Information Page

Applicant must include a color copy of the information page of the passport.

1.3  Photo Requirement

Applicant must submit two (2) identical, color, passport style photographs. The photos must be recent and generally should not be the same used for the passport itself. Please write first and last names of applicant in pencil on back of photos

1.4  Proof of Travel

Applicant must submit a computer-generated itinerary from a travel agency or online booking tool (such as an e-confirmation or online booking) showing departure from the US and arrival/departure for the destination.

Note, if traveling via private charter the charters manifest should suffice.

1.5  Proof of Residency

Applicant must submit a legible color copy of their driver's license or state issued ID.

If applicant does not have a state issued ID or has recently moved and not updated their ID, applicant must also provide a recent utility bill (sewer, water, electric)

1.6  Applicants Under 18yrs

Applicants under 18 years require several additional detailed requirements outlined below (see additional notes at bottom for custodial discrepancies if applicable):

1) If applicant’s passport is not signed and/or if applicant is too young to sign their passport, both parents should sign the passport with their relation indicated. For instance "SIGNATURE – Mother / SIGNATURE – Father”. At a minimum this must be done by one parent but should be done by both.

2) Applicants under 18 years cannot sign their Brazil visa application. Instead, both parents must sign in the signature box provided on the application. It is important to keep both signatures inside the signature box.

3) Applicant must include ORIGINAL + one color photocopy of child’s birth certificate

4) Applicant must include color photocopy of parent's passports or driver’s license. If parent's names on identification do not match that of the birth certificate (due to legal name change), parent must include copy of legal name change document (such as marriage certificate or court order)

5) Applicant must include a NOTARIZED form of authorization from parents (see link below). PLEASE NOTE: The form requires a separate notarization for each parent (this may be done by the same notary, but once for each parent).

Notice Regarding Custodial Discrepancies: If only one parent is listed on the birth certificate, only that parent must include documentation and signatures. If parents are separated or divorced, both parents must still include documents and original signatures/notarizations as applicable unless one parent has FULL legal custody in which case copies of custodial agreement must be included. In case of one parent being deceased, a copy of a death certificate must be included. For other legal custody agreements, copies of court orders or adoptions decrees should suffice.

1.7  Power of Attorney

Applicant must submit NOTARIZED Power of Attorney form allowing us to work with the consulate on applicants behalf. Please note special section for applications for minors.

1.8  Brazil Visa Worksheet

The Brazilian government has implemented changes to the visa application process that may affect applicants applying for visas. Currently, the technical aspects of the application process are affected and at this time we do not know how stable the implemented process is. Experience dictates that new technology releases by foreign governments are not always fully functional and “bugs’ can linger. We do expect for some delays but what the issues will be and how they will be resolved are unknown at this point.

The following link will provide you with a visa application worksheet. Please read the introduction and complete the form as indicated.

1.9  Special Notice
