AZPThe Alpha Zeta Partners (AZP) education abroad program (AZP) was in Brazil from January 3 - February 9.

The purpose of the Alpha Zeta fraternity is to bring together a group of men and women interested in the continued advancement of agriculture and natural resources and to foster and develop high standards of scholarship, character, leadership and a spirit of fellowship among its members.

The group of 17 students from the Ohio State College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) accompanied by Associate Professor Jeff King, PhD, spent their time in Brazil attending Portuguese and agriculture classes at Ohio State’s partner, Luiz de Queiroz College of Agriculture at the University of São Paulo (ESALQ – USP), a top university in Latin America, which is located in Piracicaba.

On January 25 the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched the Electronic Visitor Visa Program, eVisa, for those who hold a United States passport, and a few other countries. This new process of acquiring a visa electronically will be easier because applicants that meet the requirements do not have to visit a Brazilian consulate.
You can apply for the eVisa and obtain it online or through the app on your mobile phone or tablet. Provided all required documents are submitted correctly, visas are normally issued within 4 - 5 working days.
Another benefit is that the cost is lower than when applying for a visa at a consulate. In total, obtaining a visa through eVisa is $44.50 (visa fee of $40 plus a service fee of $4.24). The visa will be valid for up to two years, for a maximum of 90 days in-country per year. All major visa categories are covered: business, tourism, cultural and scientific programs, research activity and studies.
For more details on necessary documentation, FAQs and accessing the online form, please, visit the eVisa website.
