Learn more about Brazil Tourism
Brazil, the touristic and cultural carnival of South America. A country full of colors whose main attraction can be found in its night lights sheltered by the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) monument in the famous city of Rio de Janeiro. Brazil is samba, passion, rhythm, dance, sea, nightlife, carnival, bosa nova, soccer... The music accompanies them even when they fight their capoeira. Among the places most visited by tourists, in addition to those already mentioned, we can name the Iguazú Falls, the Pan de Azúcar (Sugarloaf) rock, the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, and the Carnival of Rio de Janeiro.
And now that we have mentioned this exotic event, let's talk about Rio de Janeiro, the city with the largest population after Sao Paulo; the capital of Brazil between 1822 to 1960, the year in which Brasilia took its place. However, Rio retains its splendor and distinction to such an extent that it would not be unreasonable to find people who still consider it the Brazilian metropolis. Without a doubt, it is the most important city since it is the core of the economy and culture of the largest country in South America and the fifth-largest in the world.
A recommended tour is to board the glass cable car (capacity: 65 people) that will take you from Vermehla beach to the Morro de Urca (from here you can see the statue of Christ the Redeemer) and then to Pan de Azúcar which corresponds to a total 1401 meters long. You can then ascend 710 meters above sea level to reach the top of Cerro del Corcovado in Tijuca National Park and admire the statue of Christ the Redeemer. It is 30.1 meters high and was declared one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
We suggest you build up a travel plan so you don't leave Rio de Janeiro without having seen: Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon, Lage Park, Santa Teresa neighborhood, the Imperial Palace, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Arches of Lapa, the Stairs of Selarón, the Tiradentes Palace, the Sao Bento Monastery, the Catete Palace, the Maracanã stadium, the Quinta da Boa Vista, and the Botanical Garden.
A must-see, for its beautiful views of the city, is the favelas such as Santa Marta, where you will find a giant sculpture and a mural of the late singer Michael Jackson. It was in this place where he recorded his music video "They Don't Care About Us”. Other favelas to consider are Cantagalo, Vidigal, Rocinha (the largest favela in the country), and Morro da Babilonia. Make sure to explore them in the company of an authorized local guide and to go in groups. It is recommended to wear discreet clothing, be careful with personal items, and avoid contact with residents.
Other cities to consider are Sao Paulo and Brasilia. In both, you will find samples of the architectural work of the Brazilian Oscar Niemeyer, a prominent national architect who, together with Lucio Costa, designed and built the new capital city of Brasilia. Some of his best-known works are the Cathedral of Brasilia and the Museum of Modern Art of Sao Paulo.
The archipelago Fernando de Noronha ("The Emerald of the Atlantic") declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001 is a site of particular interest to nature tourists. Access is by air only. Flights depart daily from the cities of Recife (Pernambuco) and Natal (Rio Grande do Norte). The island owes its name to the Portuguese, Fernao de Noronha, who discovered it in the 16th century. The only habitable island is the largest one of the 21 islands that make up the archipelago and has an area of 17km². Also called "Fernando de Noronha" or "Noroña". This destination is ideal for diving activities.
But there is no doubt that the greatest ecotourism attraction of this country is the Iguazú Falls located on the river of the same name and which are also one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the Modern World. Located between Brazil (Paraná) and Argentina (Misiones). Its highest jump with 80 meters high is the Garganta del Diablo (Devil's Throat). This can be admired from a boat ride or through the ecological trails.
Keep in mind that, as of December 30, 2020, to enter Brazil, every passenger must present a negative PCR (COVID-19) test with a validity of no more than 72 hours. Additionally, you will be required to obtain a Brazil Traveler's Health Declaration, also known as DSV, which can be obtained through our page: iVisa.com. The Brazil Traveler's Health Declaration is valid for 14 days, just for a single entry, and has a cost of $ 20USD. Anyone who wants to enter the country must fill it out either digitally or in print. Fortunately, with iVisa.com you can request it virtually by filling out the application form corresponding to your nationality. Simply go to iVisa.com, provide your country of birth and your country of destination.

After the estimated processing time (4 hours) you will receive your Brazil Traveler's Health Declaration in the email provided.
