4 min read
Updated on Apr 13, 2024

Please note that the Brazil eVisa requirement has been set back until April 10th, 2025, for this reason, we are not currently accepting applications. The government of Brazil has extended visa-free entry until this date.

Imagine immersing yourself in the vibrant culture of Brazil, a country where the rhythm of samba fills the air, and nature's wonders unfold at every turn. Picture yourself dancing at Rio de Janeiro's world-famous Carnival or soaking up the sun on the golden sands of Copacabana Beach. As enticing as these experiences are, it's vital for travelers to keep in mind the duration of their Brazil Visa.

Understanding visa validity is crucial to avoid overstaying and facing potential complications. Although iVisa does not currently offer services for Brazil visas, we're here to guide you through understanding the rules and regulations of the Brazil Visa validity to ensure your stay is as enchanting as the country itself.

Applying for a Brazil Visa

Applying for a Brazil Visa is straightforward and can be completed by following a few basic steps:

Step 1: Contact the nearest Brazilian embassy or consulate and find out the requirements for the visa you want to apply for.

Step 2: Complete the visa application form. This can be done online through the Brazil immigration website. Upload all the required documents.

Step 3: Once your application is complete, print out the receipt of the visa request form and attach a passport photo.

Step 4: Submit your visa application. Depending on the embassy or consulate, you can do it in person or send it by post.

Step 5: Pay the visa fee.

Step 6: Wait for the visa decision. You will be notified if your visa is approved and you’ll have to go and collect your passport, which contains your Brazil Visa.

How long is the Brazil Visa valid for?

The Brazil Visitor Visa (VIVIS) generally allows stays of up to 90 days, with possible extensions. The validity of the visa, which is the time frame within which you must enter Brazil, can be up to one year. For citizens of certain countries, this validity period may be extended to 3, 5, or 10 years​.

How to extend a tourist visa in Brazil

If you wish to extend your stay in Brazil beyond the initial period allowed, an extension must be requested from the Brazilian Federal Police before the first period expires. It is only possible to apply for a visa extension before your visa expires. Extensions are not guaranteed and must be officially approved.

Extending your visa depends on your nationality and your intended purpose of stay in the country. Here’s how to get an extension:

  1. Booking an appointment with the Federal Police: This can be done online. We recommend you do this at least two weeks before your visa expires, as availability can vary. When you book online, you’ll receive a barcode necessary for your appointment.

  2. Filling out a visa extension form: Complete the required form. This generates a receipt, with which you'll need to make a payment at a local Brazilian bank.

  3. Attend the appointment: At your appointment, submit all the required documents. Remember to include the proof of visa fee payment you acquired in the previous step.

How long can I stay in Brazil without a visa?

The length of stay in Brazil without a visa depends on your nationality. For example, Slovenian passport holders and citizens from countries with visa exemption agreements with Brazil can stay for up to 90 days per year without a visa.

What happens if I overstay my tourist visa in Brazil?

If you overstay a tourist visa in Brazil, you'll face a daily fine. You have the option to pay this fine either upon leaving Brazil or during your next visit. However, re-entry into Brazil is not permitted if the fine remains unpaid. Additionally, overstaying results in a six-month ban from re-entering the country.

In cases where authorities find you with an expired visa, you'll be given a seven-day window to depart Brazil. Along with this directive, you will have to pay the overstay fine and face the six-month re-entry ban.

How much does it cost to extend a tourist visa in Brazil?

The cost to extend a visa in Brazil varies. For the most current and detailed information regarding extension fees, contact the Federal Police or the Brazilian embassy or consulate nearest to you.
