Brazil Visa Policy

Brazil operates a very robust visa policy used by the government to determine foreigners who can enter the country with and without a visa. Most visitors will need a visa in advance if they wish to visit Brazil, but persons from visa-exempt countries don't need a visa. Depending on their nationality, they can visit the country for up to 90 days with their passports or identity cards.

Visa-exempted nationals are limited in what they can do in the country, from transit to business, sports, and artistic events. Furthermore, Spanish citizens can also visit Brazil without visas, but they must hold flight tickets to and from Brazil, Proof of accommodation or a notarized letter issued by their host, and a minimum amount in cash per day to cover their stay there.

The visa policy allows transit visitors from any country to pass through, but they must remain in the international transit area of the airport they are using. If they must leave, they must apply for a transit visa.

Electronic Visa

The electronic or online visa is issued to visitors through their verified email addresses. 

This online visa eliminates the need to visit the embassy to get a visa. E visas allow the holder to stay in Brazil for up to 90 days, and it has two versions. One is the single-entry version, valid for just 90 days, and the multiple-entry version, valid for 2 years from the issue date.
