BRAZIL EVISA REQUIREMENTS

The Brazil eVisa was introduced in November 2017 and it has significantly simplified the visa application process for travelers from the eligible countries. Although the online application for the Brazilian visa was temporarily suspended, the government has now reintroduced the eVisa online system to enter Brazil for three specific nationalities: Australia, Canada, and the United States.

Effective April 10th, 2024, travelers from Australia, Canada, and the United States heading to Brazil for tourism, business, or visiting family and friends must adhere to online visa requirements for entry into Brazilian territory.

Travelers who obtain this multiple-entry visa online are allowed entry into Brazil for a maximum of 90 days (equivalent to three months). Additionally, the issued Evisas are valid for one year.

You can access the online visa application form for arrivals in Brazil by air, sea, or land through this website.

The application process is straightforward and fast, and if all the requirements mentioned below are met, applicants usually receive their e-Visa within a week via email.

It’s advisable for applicants to submit their Brazil visa application online at least two months before their scheduled trip. This proactive approach ensures a stress-free experience and guarantees that the travel document arrives on time, providing peace of mind for travelers.

Please note that electronic visas are exclusively available for citizens of Australia, Canada, and the United States.

The Brazilian eVisa is NOT a regular visa obtained at the EMBASSY

The eVisa and Consular Visa differ in both the way you apply for them and their delivery methods:
  • Only citizens from Australia, USA, and Canada can obtain a Brazil Evisa.
  • The eVisa is available online only by filling out an application via computer or mobile device, while the Consular Visa requires an in-person visit to a Consulate and its approval period could be longer.
  • The eVisa application is conveniently completed online on the website. Once approved the eVisa is delivered in PDF via email. The Consular Visa instead is granted at the Embassy or Consulate and is applied to your Passport.
  • In fact, please note that the eVisa will not be stamped on your passport but is only associated to your passport number.
  • Despite their differences in the application methods, both the eVisa and Consular Visa have similar characteristics, for example, they have the same validity period and allow multiple entries in Brazil.


Citizens from several other countries are required a traditional Consular visa for entry into Brazil. Among those are various Asian and African nations. 

If you belong to a visa-required country other than Australia, Canada, or the United States, you must apply for your Brazil travel visa in person at the embassy.

For travelers coming from visa-exempt countries, such as all European Union member states and certain African, Asian, and Central American countries, in most cases there is no requirement for visa for stays of up to 90 days.

We would like to stress out once more that Australia, Canada, and the United States are no longer exempt from Brazil’s visa requirements. 

Effective from April 10, 2024, travelers from these countries must obtain an eVisa for entry into Brazil.

You can obtain the electronic Brazil visa for a fee of $120, which covers a three-month stay in the country. The payment process is conducted online and accepted methods of payment are MasterCard and Visa credit or Debit cards.

The Brazilian immigration authority declares the processing time being 5 days. In our experience, a travel document takes at least 7 days to be approved.

It is recommended that every applicant completes and submits the visa form online 2 months in advance before their planned travel to Brazil. That would ensure a smoother processing and ensure a timely visa approval. Sometimes additional documents are required along with re-submission of scan images due to poor quality.

However, please note that the final processing time is subject to the Brazilian government’s discretion.

While travel insurance is not obligatory for visiting Brazil, it is recommended. It’s wise to consider purchasing a policy that includes coverage for trip cancellations, medical emergencies, and lost luggage. 

Healthcare expenses for foreigners in Brazil can be substantial, making comprehensive insurance could be essential.
