UPDATE: On April 10, 2024, the Brazilian Government announced that they will postpone the e-Visa requirement for citizens of the United States, Australia, and Canada until April 10, 2025.

Starting April 10, 2025, Brazil is bringing back tourist and business visa requirements for citizens of the United States, Canada, and Australia. But don’t worry – it’s not complicated. You just need a Brazil e-visa before you enter the country.

What is an e-Visa?

An e-Visa is similar to a traditional tourist or business visa. It gives you permission to travel around the country for up to 90 days. The difference between a traditional visa and an e-Visa is that it is easily applied for online. No embassy visits required!

Getting your Brazil e-Visa is easy. Fill out a simple form on your computer or phone. There is no need to go anywhere in person, just send a clear copy of your signed passport. The approval process is faster than a traditional visa, saving you valuable time ahead of your trip.

Who Needs an e-Visa to Visit Brazil?

U.S., Canadian, and Australian citizens will be required to have a valid e-Visa before traveling to Brazil. This requirement will be enforced starting at midnight on April 10, 2025, onwards.

How Does the e-Visa Work?

The Brazil e-Visa is valid for one year and you can visit for up to 90 days at a time. Plus, it’s a Multiple Entry visa, so visit Brazil more than once in that year.

Need more time? You can extend your e-Visa through Brazil’s Federal Police. Just make sure to do it before it expires, otherwise you may face complications.  

Brazil e-Visa Requirements

Ready to apply? Along with your passport, you’ll need a few things:

  • A recent passport-style photo.
  • A copy of your round-trip flight details to Brazil.
  • A signed invitation letter if a Brazilian company is hosting you.
  • Your latest bank statement or paycheck.
  • Payment of the US$80.90 consular fee.
  • If you are traveling for business-related purposes you will also need a letter from your employer

Minors traveling to Brazil will need these additional application requirements:

  • Original birth certificate and one copy
  • Authorization for Issuance of Brazilian Visa for a Minor, signed by both parents
  • For children of Brazilian parent(s): Statement of Non-Citizenship declaring that the applicant is not a Brazilian citizen (does not hold a Brazilian Birth Certificate), signed by Brazilian parent(s).
  • If only one parent is listed on the birth certificate, only that parent’s signature is required.
  • If one parent has sole custody of the applicant, a notarized copy of the court order awarding sole custody and exclusive parental rights must be presented.
  • If one parent is deceased, a death certificate must be presented.
  • Copy of passports or other form of photo ID for both parents.
  • The name on the parent’s photo ID must match the parent’s name on the child’s birth certificate. If the parent has changed their name since the issuance of the birth certificate, the parent must present documentation showing proof of the name change (e.g. marriage certificate or court order). Even if they are not minors, adults also need to present the Court Order in case of a change of name.
