Visa information

Visitor Visa

Nationals of some countries are required to provide an entry visa that is issued at the country of origin. EU and South American citizens in general do not require a visa to enter Brazil, but those from US, Canada and Mexico do. Visitors are advised to check the Brazilian Embassy for the requirements for a visa application.

Applying for a Brazilian visa is generally a simple procedure, although participants are advised to apply for a visa ahead of time. Visa costs range from US$ 160 for US citizens, to US 65$ for Canadians citizens and US$ 30 for Mexicans.

Registrants to the meeting may request a letter of invitation to expedite their visa application, if needed, which will be available upon registration.

Brazil is very attractive for tourism and we anticipate that several participants will extend their visit to different destinations in the country.
