Visa Information

As result of a recent Brazilian executive order that will enter into force on June 17, 2019, the visa exemption for citizens of the United States of America, Australia, Canada and Japan who wish to travel to Brazil was enacted on March 18, 2019. This will enable visitors from these four countries to enter Brazil without a visa.

The measure benefits holders of a valid passport traveling for tourism, business, artistic or sports activities or in exceptional situations of national interest. The initiative also covers travelers transiting through Brazil. Visitors will be granted a stay of up to 90 days, which can be extended once for the same period, as long as they do not exceed 180 days within a 12-month period, counted from the date of the first entry. If the regular stay is exceeded, the visitor will be considered an illegal alien subject to the applicable measures by the Brazilian government

As this is a new rule for Brazilian VISA, please make sure with the local Brazilian Consulate that the new rule applies to your travel and check the necessary procedures to travel to Brazil. Do not travel without checking first if you really do not need a VISA!
