Brazil Tourist eVisa Information

As of 17/06/2019, the Tourist online eVisa for Brazil is no longer required for previously eligible countries. To verify your eligibility please use the Visa Checker on top of this page.

The Brazilian government may introduce a new electronic visa in the near future, and any updates will be published on this site when available.

The Tourist Brazil eVisa was an electronic visa introduced in November 2017 to facilitate visa processing for citizens of eligible countries who wanted to visit Brazil for tourism.

The Brazil visa application online eliminated the need to apply at a Brazilian Consulate or Embassy.

The Brazil online visa allowed eligible citizens to stay 90 days per year. The Brazil eVisa was a multiple-entry visa and valid for 2 years from the date of issue.

The Brazil tourist visa application only took a few minutes to complete online. The eVisa for Brazil was valid for multiple travel purposes, such as: tourism, business, transit, to study, journalism, voluntary activities, to visit relatives and medical treatment among others.

To complete the Brazil eVisa application form, applicants were required to fill in some personal and passport information and answer easy questions related to security and health matters.

Once the Brazil eVisa application online had been approved, the Brazil tourist visa was electronically linked to the applicant’s passport.

Since the Brazil eVisa was discontinued in 2019, travelers from the 4 countries that were previously eligible (Australia, Canada, Japan, and the United States of America) have been put on Brazil’s visa waiver list.

This means that at present, visitors from these countries can enter Brazil visa-free for a maximum of 90 days.

Although the eVisa for Brazil is no longer required, other visas for Brazil still exist.

For long-term stays or to live and/or work in Brazil, all foreign nationals (including those from visa waiver countries) must apply for the relevant visa at a Brazilian embassy.

Travelers from non-visa waiver countries must obtain a Brazil visa from an embassy for any visit, regardless of purpose or length of stay.

Travelers visiting Brazil for longer periods than 3 months per year must contact a Brazilian Embassy or Consulate for further information.
