| Minors

The following items are mandatory for all minors:

  • A copy of both parents’ driver license;
  • A copy of the applying minor’s birth certificate.

All applicants under the age of 18 years are considered minors and cannot sign their visa application forms. Both parents must fill out and sign both the Authorization for Minor Visa issuance Form and the Brazil visa application form. The parent signatures on both of these forms must be notarized. Minor visas will not be issued without the consent of both parents except in the following cases:

  • One of the parent’s is not listed on the birth certificate;
  • One of the parents has a an original or certified copy of a Court Order or Divorce Decree granting not only full custody but exclusive parental rights.

Children 3 months to 6 years old, require a certificate of polio vaccination.

Children of Brazilian citizens can only apply for a visa if they have not yet been issued a Brazilian birth certificate and therefore are not eligible for a Brazilian passport. In that case, the Brazilian parent(s) must attach a notarized Declaration of Non-Citizenship stating that the child was not registered in any Consulate or in Brazil and, therefore, does not hold Brazilian citizenship.


Applicants whose application mentions “visiting friends or family” must provide an ORIGINAL and NOTARIZED letter of invitation from their host in Brazil.

Scientists, professors, or researchers who are current University faculty, attending cultural, technological, or scientific conferences, seminars or meetings must provide an ORIGINAL and NOTARIZED letter of invitation from their host in Brazil. The invitation letter must clearly state that the applicant services will be unpaid. Services provided must not be paid by organizations/companies in Brazil except for reimbursement of expenses or per diem allowances.

Applicants participating in artistic or amateur sport competitions where no monetary prize or paid admission is involved will require an ORIGINAL and NOTARIZED letter of invitation from their host in Brazil.

Applicants intending to visit with religious organizations, churches, missionaries, or humanitarian organizations in Brazil must provide an ORIGINAL and NOTARIZED invitation from Brazil or business letter from the host church/organization.
The letter should:

  • explain what the group is going to do in Brazil;
  • provide name, address, and contact information of the institution they will be visiting
  • state the kind of volunteer assistance the applicant will provide.


Brazil Tourist Visa ( VITUR ):

  • Tourism;
  • Visit to relatives and/or friends;
  • Scientists, professors or researchers attending cultural, technological or scientific conferences, seminars;

Brazil visas for tourism are NOT REQUIRED for citizens of the United States, Australia, Canada and Japan.

The validity and duration of the Brazil visa is at the discretion of the Brazilian Consulate. Long-duration visas for 5-10 years are valid from the day they were issued. Short-duration visas for 30-90 days are valid from the date of first entry into Brazil.

All visa holders may only stay in Brazil for up to 90 days per year regardless of nationality or visa validity date. It is possible to have the visa extended an extra 90 days by the Federal Police Department while in Brazil.

If your Brazilian visa is still valid and your passport expires, you can get a new passport and carry both the new passport (valid) and the old passport (with the visa) when you travel to Brazil.
