Residents of MERCOSUL's countries do not need a visa to enter Brazil, but in order to enter the country by plane a document with a photo ID (passport or driver's license) is required. For more information regarding the preferred form of identification, visitors should consult the airline company.
For those who not reside in MERCOSUL's countries a visa is required and can be applied at any Brazilian consulate abroad. The fee varies depending on the type of requested visa and the time that the tourist will stay in the country. The passport must be valid for at least 6 months from de date of the visa application.
Another option is the Short-Term Business Travel visa, that can be obtained at any Brazilian consulate upon submission of a letter from the requesting company (foreign or Brazilian company), containing: the purpose of the trip, names, addresses and phone numbers of business contacts in Brazil, arrival and departure dates, guarantee of financial and moral responsibility by the visitor during the visit. The visa allows the visitor to participate in meetings, conferences, fairs and seminars, visit potential clients, research the market and perform similar activities. These visitors are not allowed to work in Brazil, under no circumstances.
