Brazil Visa - updated information!




On November 11, 2017, he Brazilian Foreing Office (Itamaraty) launched the Electronic Tourist Visa Programme - E-VISA - for citizens of Australia, Canada, Japan and the USA

The initiative makes the visa application for Brazil quicker and more convenient, increasing the efficiency of consular services. The foreign applicant may apply for the E-VISA and obtain it remotely, either via the website

 or mobile/tablet app. 

The electronic visa system is planned to begin operating for the following countries on the following dates: 

Australia: started the operation on November 21, 2017 

Japan: January 11, 2018 

Canada: January 18, 2018 

USA: January 25, 2018 

The Brazilian E-VISA will be paid for online and will cost USD 40, significantly cheaper than the traditional visa. Payment can be made via Mastercard, Visa or Union Pay. The visa will be valid for two years from the date of issue and the process should take an average of five working days. Even with the new online system, it will still be possible to request a visa through the Brazilian consular network in the traditional way. 

The electronic visa holder will be required to present a printed copy to the airline in order to board their flight to Brazil. The Federal Police are fully integrated with the E-VISA, and it is anticipated that in the near future it will also be combined with the e-Gates at Brazilian airports, currently exclusive to Brazilian citizens.
