Visa

Tourist Visa Waiver

Citizens from countries which do not normally demand tourist visas from Brazilians do not need to apply anticipatedly for a VITUR visa in order to enter Brazil, and are entitled to visa waivers valid for stays of up to 90 days.

Passport holders from the following countries traveling to Brazil for the reasons covered by the VITUR visa do not need to apply for a visa:

Argentina, Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Belgium, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Chile, Colombia, Cyprus, Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, El Salvador, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain/United Kingdom, Greece, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Hong Kong, Hungry, Ireland, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Morocco, Monaco, Namibia, Norway, New Zealand, Netherlands (Holland), Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, San Marino , Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Sovereign and Military Order of Malta, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland (Helvetic Confederation), Suriname, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, Vatican (Holy See), and Venezuela.

 

Who Needs a Visa?

Foreign citizens not eligible for a visa waiver need a Brazilian Tourist Visa (VITUR) whenever they come to Brazil with the following purposes:

• tourist travel;

• short term visits to relatives and friends;

scientists, professors, or researchers traveling to take part in conferences, congresses, or cultural, scientific, or technological seminars;

• participation in artistic or amateur sport competitions, once there are no monetary awards or charging of entrance fees.

Thus, participants of the 21st WCSS are generally expected to hold a valid VITUR visa in order to attend the congress and travel inside the country for tourism (N.B.: trips with additional purposes not listed above may demand different visa classes). They should consult with Brazilian consular authorities in their places of origin to apply for it before entering Brazil, unless they are eligible for a visa waiver. This requirement is based on the principle of reciprocity of treatment and applies to nationals of countries which demand visas from Brazilians to enter their territories.

Therefore, citizens of the following countries are required a previously issued visa to enter Brazil:

Afghanistan, Algeria, American Virgin Islands, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bahrein, Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Byelorussia, Cape Verde, Cameroon, Cambodia, Canada, Chad, Comoros Islands, Congo, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, East Timor, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Fiji, French Guyana, Gabon, Ghana (Ghana), Granada, Guam, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kirgizstan, Kiribati, Kiribati Island, Kuwait, Laos, Lesotho, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Marianas Islands, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Mauritania, Myanmar, Mozambique, Moldavia, Mongolia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Nauru, Nepal, Niger, Nigeria, Norfolk Island, North Korea, Oman, Palau Island, Papua Nova Guinea, Pakistan, People’s Republic of China (China), Porto Rico, Qatar, Republic of Belarus, Reunion, Ruanda, Samoa, São Tomé and Príncipe, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serra Leon, Seychelles Islands, Somalia, Somaliland, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tajikistan, Tibet, Togo, Tonga, Transnistria, Turkmenistan, Tuvalu, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United States of America, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu, Vietnam, Yemen, and Zambia.
