Journeying to Brazil has become even easier than ever before. As of November 2017, the Brazilian Government started to implement an electronic visa application process for tourists who wish to travel to Brazil. This is great considering you no longer have to visit an embassy to get your visa. This visa allows you to stay for a maximum of 90 days per visit making any trip to Brazil possible. The Brazil eVisa will be valid for 2 (two) years and will allow you to enter the country multiple times. However, applying can be a pain so I’m going to share the easiest and best way to get your Brazil eVisa.
How to get the Brazil eVisa
The Government of Brazil has appointed VFS to manage online visa applications. They charge a fee of $45 but they don’t make the process especially easy. To apply you will need:
– A color copy of your passport information page including your signature.
– A color passport photo.
– Your credit card
VFS is not especially user-friendly, and getting the right quality for your documents can be a major pain point. This is why I usually recommend travelers to use iVisa. They take the stress out of the application, and what’s best, they will refund your fees in the unlikely event of application visa refusal (something that VFS will not do). has years of experience in delivering visas to travelers from all around the world traveling to countries as diverse as China, Egypt and of course Brazil.
This eVisa will be delivered to you by email within 2-7 business days depending on the required speed you need. Once you have the PDF visa, It is also recommendable to print it, so have a printer ready. A couple of advantages by iVisa is that it has 24×7 chat support and they make it easy to apply from your phone, which is really important when it comes to taking valid photos for your application.
You should print your visa as soon as you receive it to have it ready when you travel. I recommend that you apply at least seven days before your arrival to Brazil to avoid any delays.
