Visa Information

Reciprocity Policy

Brazil follows 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.

Travelers with passports from the United States, Canada and Australia are exempted from the reciprocity policy and will not need a visa to enter Brazil until April 10, 2025. (The Brazilian government recently postponed the visa requirement for US, Canadian and Australian citizens, which originally was set to take effect on April 10, 2024.)

Brazil has signed visa exemption agreements with about 90 countries. The Ministry of Foreign Relations General Framework of Visa Regime contains information about visa requirement and exemptions for foreign citizens. Review the Entry Visas to Brazil (QGRV) document to find out if you need a visa to travel to Brazil.

Visit Visa

The visit visa will be issued to foreigners traveling to Brazil for staying up to 90 days without purposes of immigration or the exercise of paid activity (daily allowances, artistic paychecks, compensation or other travel expenses are allowed).

Visit visas can be granted for those traveling for tourism, business, transit, artistic or sports activities, study, volunteer work, or to attend to conferences, seminars or meetings, among other purposes - provided there is no remuneration in Brazil and the stay does not exceed 90 days.

Vaccination Requirements

Vaccination Requirements

There is no mandatory proof of vaccination required to enter Brazil. However, the Brazilian Ministry of Health recommends that international tourists update their vaccination status prior to arrival in accordance with the guidelines in the vaccination calendar of the country of origin or residence.

Yellow Fever

The yellow fever vaccine is recommended for residents and/or travelers traveling to Vaccination Recommended Areas (ACRV), at least 10 days before the date of travel, the time necessary for the vaccine to provide protection against infection.


As it is a potentially serious and highly transmissible disease, it is important that tourists update their measles vaccination status before traveling to Brazil.

Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio

The Brazilian Ministry of Health recommends that foreign tourists come to Brazil with a complete vaccination schedule for diphtheria, tetanus, and polio, in accordance with the recommendations recommended in the country of origin.
