This means that nationals of countries that require visas for Brazilian citizens will need a visa to travel to Brasil. According to the Brazilian law, Brasil must agree, on a reciprocal basis, to offer visa waiver to nationals of another country, except for the hypotheses established in the Decree 9.731 / 2019. Brasil has signed visa exemption agreements with about 90 countries.

Where to apply for a visa?

Itamaraty (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) is the body of the Brazilian government responsible for granting visas, which occurs through the Embassies, General Consulates, Consulates and Vice consulates of Brasil abroad.

Take note that the Brazilian visa will never be granted in Brazilian territory. Therefore, it is not possible to obtain your visa in airports, ports of entry or any other point of the Brazilian border. Itamaraty and the Federal Police (agency responsible for immigration control in Brazilian borders) cannot and will not authorize the entry of foreign nationals who do not have the proper visa.

If the foreigner is already in Brazilian territory and wishes to extend his stay or obtain a residence permit, he or she must refer to the Ministry of Justice/Federal Police or the Ministry of Labour, if said authorization is for instance for work or research purposes.
