Travel visas to Brazil

Detalhe do Visto
Brazilian federal law requires tourism and/or business visas from citizens of countries that require similar visas from Brazilians. Reciprocity policy may also extend beyond visa matters; please refer to the nearest Brazilian consulate for more information.

Entry visas for visiting Brazil are currently required from citizens from Australia, Canada, Haiti, the United States of America, most countries in Africa, Asia and Oceania, and a few other countries. Citizens of the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan may now apply for Brazilian visas online, through the eVisa (electronic visa) application website For a complete list of nationalities that need visas click here.

Entry visas for Brazil are not required for short tourism and business trips by citizens from most countries in South America, Central America, and Europe, as well as nationals from South Africa, Singapore, Israel, Morocco, Mexico, Mongolia and other countries. Citizens from Mercosur may enter Brazil with a recent official ID document from their home country in lieu of a passport. Visa-exempt nationalities are subject to other rules regarding allowed activities while in Brazil and maximum periods of stay, which may vary from country to country. Click here for more information.

If you do need a visa, please submit an application here. All passports must be valid for at least six months after your arrival date in Brazil. Brazilian authorities may request invitation letters from ICM 2018 participants. The letter will be available online at the account system after the registration has been completed and the registration fee paid. This letter is individual and does not replace the visa. Visa requests remain the sole responsibility of each individual traveler.


If you want to take advantage of the reduced registration fees, please make sure to register before April 27, 2018.
