Do you need a visa?
Brazil adopts a policy of reciprocity regarding visas. This means that nationals of countries that require visas for Brazilian citizens will need a visa to travel to Brazil. According to the Brazilian law, Brazil needs to sign an agreement, on a reciprocal basis, to offer visa waiver to national of another country.

Visa Waiver (for up to 60 days) – Entrance allowed by presenting Civil Identity Card

Visa Waiver (for up to 90 days) – Maximum 90 day stay every 180 days
Visa Waiver (for up to 90 days) – Renewable for a maximum period of 180 days every 12 months
Visa Waiver (for up to 90 days) – Brazil does not maintain diplomatic relations. No Diplomatic Visa or Official Visa is granted.

Note: * The validity for the use of the visas is 90 (ninety) days, counted from the date of its grant, and may be extended by the consular authority once, for an equal period, and the respective fees will be charged, applying this requirement only to citizens of countries where the reciprocal limitation is verified.
Where to apply for a visa?
Itamaraty (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs) is the body of the Brazilian government responsible for granting visas, which occurs through the Embassies, General Consulates, Consulates and Vice consulates of Brazil abroad. Take note that the Brazilian visa will never be granted in Brazilian territory. Therefore, it is not possible to obtain your visa in airports, ports of entry or any other point of the Brazilian border. Itamaraty and the Federal Police (agency responsible for immigration control in Brazilian borders) cannot and will not authorize the entry of foreign nationals who do not have the proper visa.
To apply for a visa, foreigners must submit the visa application form duly completed, a valid travel document, proof of payment of consular fees, International Certificate of Immunization – when necessary, and other specific documents for the type of visa requested.
Foreigners who want to apply for a visa to travel to Brazil should contact the Brazilian Representations abroad to obtain more information about the subject.

The tourist visa will be issued to foreigners traveling to Brazil on a temporary basis, without purposes of immigration or the exercise of paid activity. Tourist visas can be granted for those traveling for tourism or to artistic competitions, sports competitions, conferences, seminars or meetings, among other purposes - provided there is no payment or remuneration of any type.
