Brazilian Embassy & Consulate Locations

Q: What is a Brazil visa? And why do I need one.

A: A Brazil visa is a stamp that is affixed to a blank visa page in your passport that is required by the Brazilian Government before you are able to enter their territory.

Q: When is the best time to apply for my Brazil visa?

A: The best time to apply for your Brazil visa is 1-3 months before (but within 90 days of) your travel date. However, if you are running short on time, we can rush many visas in 1or 2 business days.

Q: Do I have to send you my passport? Is it safe to send a passport?

Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Brazilian visa is stamped into your passport and will become a permanant part of one of your passport pages. Visa requests cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application in a secure way, using a traceable courier such as FedEx or UPS.
