Helpful Notes: 

  • When you access the Online Application you may get a message stating this is an "untrusted connection". This is due to the security certificate for the application web page being issued by the Brazilian Government and is not recognized by most web browsers in the United States.
  • To convert the application from Portuguese to English, click the British Flag in the top right corner.
  • Where the applications asks for "alternate ID" put your drivers license information.
  • On the final page of the application, it will ask you to upload your documents. If you wish, you may instead upload this image where it asks for a passport photo then submit and print the application. UVC will upload all your actual documents for you.
  • The printed application will be a single page with a signature box and two bar codes. Simply sign inside the signature box.
  • The Brazilian visa application must be submitted within 30 days of completion or it will expire.

Brazil Fun Facts

Did you know that Brazil has the largest Catholic community in the world?

Roman Catholicism has been the primary religion in Brazil since the beginning of the 16th century. It was introduced to the Native Brazilians by Jesuits missionaries and was observed by the initial Portuguese settlers. An estimated 130 million people, about 65 percent of the Brazilian population, are self-declared Catholics.
