Passport/Visa Note

All visitors require passports that are valid for at least the period of intended stay in Brazil but we strongly recommend that passports be valid for six months after intended date of travel. Border control may well deny entry to holders of passports valid for less than six months. Sufficient funds to cover their stay in Brazil, as well as a return or onward ticket and documentation required for further travel, are necessary for all travellers. Visa requirements vary from country to country.

Note that Brazil has introduced a temporary visa waiver system during the 2016 Summer Olympic Games which allows American, Australian, Canadian and Japanese nationals going to Brazil exclusively for tourism activities, entering the country between 1 June 2016 and 18 September 2016, to be eligible for a 90 day, non-extendable, unilateral visa waiver counted from the first entry within that period. Travellers should confirm in advance whether this temporary visa waiver applies to them.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
