Learn More: Tourist eVisa
Please note Brazil has discontinued the eVisa for all countries as of June 17, 2019. For US, Canadian and Australian citizens, we strongly suggest registering your trip with your embassy.
In January 2018, Brazil introduced electronic visas for citizens of Australia, Japan, Canada and the United States. By applying online, travelers from the aforementioned nations do not need to visit the consulate to apply for a tourist e-Visa. This streamlined system cut out the time wasted at the embassy and many rather convoluted application procedures.
The Brazil Tourist e-Visa includes four categories of visitors: those traveling to Brazil for tourism/vacation, those who go to Brazil to visit their family or friends, unpaid participants in athletic or artistic events/competitions, and unpaid participants in scientific/academic seminars/conferences sponsored by academic or research institutions.
Applicants will receive their visas via email, after filling the application form with the necessary information and completing their online payment.

Chances are you are going to need one.
NOTE: Citizens of countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan can get an electronic visa. It is obtained online and we can help you get one in no time.
HEALTH: Get vaccines against Dengue fever, Yellow fever, and Typhoid. While they are not present all over Brazil, depending on the area you are planning to visit. Make sure that you get them before your travel!
MONEY: Remember NOT all ATMs accept all kinds of credit or debit cards. We recommend you to carry some cash and avoid making a withdrawal in the first days of the month since people in Brazil are usually paid at the beginning of the month so you will have to wait in long lines.
TOURISM: Anyone can tell you to visit the “Cristo de Corcovado”, that’s a must. BUT let’s not forget some hidden gems like Buzios, a wonderful white sand, blue waters beach, surrounded by green trees and next to a wonderful open mall, Buzios is definitely a MUST. Remember to add: The Iguazu Falls, Copacabana, Ipanema and Pan de Azucar to your list, you will not regret it.
LANGUAGE: People in Brazil speak Portuguese. BUT you will find people who speak English. Don’t worry brazilians are famous for their hospitality so they will help you get around.
FOOD and DRINKS: We recommend visiting a “Rodizio”, a never ending parade of grilled meats that only stops when you say so, it is the perfect barbecue experience and a classic for anyone who visits the country. For a taste of the sea you will want to try a “Moqueca”, fish, shrimp, diced tomatoes, onions and coriander are combined in a wonderful luscious stew, perfect for all clam chowder fans, take a leap and taste this treasure of the sea. If you have a sweet tooth you will definitely enjoy “Brigadeiros” they are Brazil’s take on chocolate truffles and they are delicious cocoa balls dipped in sprinkles or nuts, kids will love them. Now something the adults will love: Caipirinhas – Brazil’s national cocktail, the secret in their mighty power? Cachaça, made from fermented sugarcane juice and the main ingredient in caipirinhas.
