                                                Types of Visa 


Who Needs a Visa?

 

1.  Citizens of foreign countries traveling to Brazil on tourism are normally required to obtain a visa prior to entering Brazil. This requirement complies with reciprocity toward countries that demand Brazilian citizens to hold a visa in order to enter into their territories. 

2.  Citizens of countries that do not demand tourist visas from Brazilian nationals usually do not need tourist visas to enter Brazil.
