Cidade Maravilhosa 1

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.
