Brazil is an incredible destination to visit. Beautiful beaches, samba, exotic flora and fauna and iconic cities like Rio de Janeiro and Salvador da Bahia all await in this tropical paradise. The easiest way to get there is with the Brazil eVisa. This means avoiding long queues at embassies and applying online from the comfort of your own home.
Currently, only citizens of Australia, Japan, USA and Canada are eligible to apply but the list of eligible countries is likely to grow in the future. To apply for the eVisa, you will just need to fill out a quick and simple application form. The form will ask you for basic information such as your passport details, address, reason for traveling to Brazil and other information such as whether you have ever committed a crime.
You will also require a passport that is valid for at least 6 months, a working Email address at which to receive your eVisa, and a debit or credit card with which to pay for your visa. The eVisa is valid for 2 years and allows you to stay in the country for a maximum of 90 days. The Brazil eVisa usually takes around 5 days to process.
Applying for the Brazil eVisa as a Family
In the case of families traveling to Brazil with the eVisa, each family member will require a separate eVisa and the family cannot travel on a single one. This includes very young children. If your child travels on your passport then they will not be eligible for a eVisa for Brazil. Each member of the family will require their own separate passport and individual eVisa. Children who are minors will also require an authorization letter from their parent or legal guardian.
The Brazil eVisa for Children
In the past, it was possible for children to travel on a parent’s passport. Nowadays many countries require that every child has their own visa linked to their own passport. This is the case with Brazil. Children will also require a passport bio page (the passport page that shows personal data), a passport-size photo, and a Minor Authorization Letter.
Receiving Your Brazil eVisa
You will receive your eVisa at your email address. Be sure to check your spam if you haven’t received it in your inbox. It should normally take a maximum of 5 days to arrive. If it hasn’t arrived by then and it isn’t in your Spam then you should contact the customer service team.
In the vast majority of cases, the visa is approved without any problems. If, however, you are one of the small number of people who see their application rejected, then you can apply again at our website.
