Latest Information

As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, United States citizens visiting Brazil for tourism or business purposes are generally required to obtain a visa before traveling. However, visa requirements can change, so it’s crucial to check the most up-to-date information from official sources or the Brazilian consulate.


Here are the general steps you would typically follow:

Check Requirements: Visit the official website of the Brazilian consulate or embassy in the United States to find the latest visa requirements and application procedures.

Complete the Application Form: Fill out the visa application form accurately. You may be able to find the form on the consulate’s website or pick it up in person.

Gather Required Documents: Common documents required for a Brazil tourist visa may include a valid passport, passport-sized photos, flight itinerary, proof of accommodation, proof of financial means, and the visa application fee.

Make an Appointment: Some consulates require applicants to schedule an appointment for submitting the application and supporting documents.

Visit the Consulate: Attend the scheduled appointment at the Brazilian consulate or embassy to submit your application and provide any necessary biometric data.

Pay the Fee: Pay the visa application fee. Fees can vary depending on the type and duration of the visa.

Wait for Processing: Visa processing times vary, but it’s essential to apply well in advance of your planned travel date.

Retrieve Passport: Once your visa is processed, you will need to pick up your passport with the visa stamped in it.


Remember that visa requirements and procedures may change, so it’s crucial to consult the official website of the Brazilian consulate or embassy in the United States for the most accurate and current information. Additionally, you may want to contact them directly or check with official government travel websites for any updates or changes to the visa application process.
