** Note for Travelers from New Zealand, South Africa, and other Latin American countries

Travelers from New Zealand, South Africa, and many other Latin American countries DO NOT REQUIRE A VISA to enter Brazil. However, it is still very important you check with your local consulate or embassy for the most up-to-date visa & passport requirements.

Passport Requirements:

Citizens of ALL countries: To enter Brazil, your passport must be valid for a minimum of 6 months after your travel dates. For example, if you are traveling to Brazil in March, your passport must be valid through September of that year.

We strongly recommend making copies of your passport. Keep your original passport locked away in the safe of your hotel and carry a photocopy of your passport with you during your travels. You might also consider purchasing a passport holder to keep all your documents safe.

e-Visa Requirements:

The e-Visa is an electronic type of visa that can be requested by Australian, Japanese, Canadian and US citizens. If you are applying for the e-Visa, you must have the following documents ready for digital upload:

* Photo
* Passport bio page
* Address page (non-mandatory)

Please visit vfsglobal for more information on how to apply for a Brazil e-Visa.

e-Visa Fees:

The following fees apply to Brazil e-Visas for US, Canadian, Australian, and Japanese Nationals: 

$40 USD + Consular Fee

Processing Time for Visas and e-Visas:

Applying for a Brazil Tourist e-Visa takes up to 72 hours from start to finish. 

Applying for a Brazil Tourist Visa through the Brazilian Consulate can take several weeks or even months. If you are not eligible for the e-Visa, make sure to start your application with the nearest Brazilian Consulate or Embassy as soon as you have scheduled your flights. 

Vaccination Recommendations: 

We highly recommend visiting the World Health Organization website for the most up-to-date country-specific vaccination requirements.

Traveling with Children:

If you are traveling with a minor (below 18 years of age), the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate may require a birth certificate and notarized authorization from both parents or legal guardian. Please have these documents ready if a minor is applying for a visa:

  • Passport bio page
  • Photo
  • Justification Letter (if you choose Parent 1 or Parent 2 or Legal Guardian). 

During the e-Visa application, birth certificates and other necessary documents can be easily uploaded through the online portal.
