An Information about Brazil visa requirements

4 months


Brazil is known for its tropical rainforests and wildlife and is on the list of any avid traveler. Maybe Brazil’s most famous monument, Christ the Redemptor, stands tall in Rio de Janeiro overlooking Brazil’s beautiful land. Sugarloaf Mountain is another attraction that offers breathtaking views from the top and has a cableway to move you from one place to the other in style, and Copacabana’s iconic crescent-shaped beach will certainly leave you hypnotized. Fernando-de-Noronha is visited by island and marine enthusiasts while, on the other hand, if you want to visit beautiful cafes with vibes from the old school and art galleries, go to Santa Teresa in Rio de Janeiro. If you are not a visa-exempt resident of one of the nations, you will need a visa to enter Brazil. Brazil has e-visa, which is the fastest way to acquire a visa.

Do I need Brazil visa?

Many nationalities are visa-exempt, and as a result, all they need to do is apply for a Brazil visa to short-term visas. If you’re not from a visa-exempt country, on the other hand, you need to apply for a regular Brazil visa and a Business or Tourist visa. You can use our Click2visas widget to find out which group you are in.

What are the types of Brazil visa?

Business visa:

Individuals who plan to go to Brazil for business purposes or to represent their company must apply for a business visa. The institute or organization that you will be visiting must send you a letter of invitation, and your passport must be valid for at least six months after your stay.

Tourist visa:

If you plan to go to Brazil for private purposes, such as visiting your friends and family or going on a holiday, you must have a tourist visa in place. Brazil does not have a tourist visa-on-arrival, and therefore you will have to apply for an e-visa or get it from your nearest Brazilian diplomatic mission in advance.

How many days is a Brazil visa valid for?

A Brazilian visa enables you to visit the country on a period for a maximum of 90 days, which is valid for two years from the date of issue.
