The Brazil E-Visa is Up and Running
Brazil has launched an electronic visa program for American and Canadian passport holders that will be implemented in 2018, offering a dramatically less expensive and more efficient way of obtaining a travel visa to the country.
In an announcement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Brazil launched the "Electronic Visitor Visa Program - E-VISA” for citizens of Australia, Canada, the U.S. and Japan. The Brazilian e-visa will be available starting Jan. 25, 2018, for U.S. citizens; and Jan. 18 for Canadians.
The cost is U.S. $40 (non-refundable), a quarter of the fee charged for U.S. passport holders applying for the traditional visa through a consulate. It will be valid for up to two years, but for only a maximum of 90 days per year.
Travelers needing a visa before and after the implementation of the new e-visa program can still apply for a traditional visa through the Brazilian consular network.
Travelers will need to present a printed or digital image of the Brazilian e-visa to their airline in order to board a flight to Brazil.
- The application can be done online or on the mobile app!
- Applicants only need a valid passport, and a photo.
- Processing time is 5 business days.
- The cost for the process USD 40 + an additional USD 4.25 service fee.
- A multiple entry visa valid for 2 years will be sent via email.
