We remind all the attendees that citizens of foreign countries are required to obtain a visa prior to entering Brazil. Detailed information about entrance visas, exceptions and special cases can be found at http://www.portalconsular.mre.gov.br/estrangeiros/1qgrv-simples-ing-14.05.2014.pdf/at_download/file. To enter Brazil, a passport valid for at least six months from date of entry is required. Invitation letters will be available for the attendees after registration and payment confirmation (See next section).
In order to apply for a visa, please refer to the nearest Brazilian Consulate and initiate the process as soon as possible. The time to issue a visa varies depending on the country and it may take a long time especially in the high season. Plan your visa application in advance.
In general, the documents required to apply for a visa are the following:
1. A valid passport (original) with the expiration date at least six months after the intended date of arrival in Brazil. Please make sure your passport is signed.
2. One Visa Application Form per applicant
3. A printed copy of the round trip or multi-country travel itinerary or a statement from a travel agency, addressed to the Brazilian Consulate, or an e-ticket confirmation (printed).
4. Payment of the respective visa fee
The list above can change depending on the country of application. Please refer to specific instructions at the nearest Brazilian Consulate.
