Visa requirements for citizens of Brazil are the rules concerning the paperwork needed for Brazilian passport holders to enter foreign countries.

A number of countries have an electronic visa (eVisa) or electronic travel authorization (ETA) available for Brazilian nationals. These are usually required for short visits for the purpose of tourism and, in some cases, business and/or transit.
These electronic entry permits tend to be the most convenient options as they can be obtained online.
Some countries have a visa on arrival (VoA) that visitors from Brazil are eligible for. However, waiting until arrival to apply for a visa means standing in line and waiting at the border, wasting valuable time.
An embassy visa is required by nationals of Brazil to enter a number of countries and territories. These must be applied for in person at a diplomatic mission.
Finally, some countries have no visa requirements for Brazilian citizens for short-term visits, allowing holders of passports issued by Brazil to enter visa-free.
