Brazilian e-Visas Now Available for US Passport Holders

Brazil has opened and electronic visa program (e-Visa) for US Passport holders. Eligible travellers are able to complete their application online for e-Visas by visiting http://vfsglobal.com/brazil-evisa/.

The Brazil e-Visa is available for nationals of Australia, Canada, Japan and now the United States.

Application and Approval process:

  • Apply online at: http://vfsglobal.com/brazil-evisa/.
  • Once approved (approval process can take anywhere from 3-5 business days), the e-Visa approval will be emailed to the applicant.
  • If it is not approved, the applicant will need to visit the Brazilian consulate office.
  • Each traveller must have their own e-Visa, print their e-Visa approval receipt and carry it when travelling – as they will be required to present it to the airlines and on arrival to Brazilian Border Police. The e-Visa must match the passport used by the traveller.
  • As this is not an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA), it is not possible to obtain an e-Visa immediately – there is no visa upon arrival available.
  • Emergency visas are not available.
