The Brazil eVisa for Japanese citizens has been launched on the 11th of January, eliminating the need to go to an embassy or consulate to seek travel authorization. The new electronic visa allows Japanese travelers to apply for and obtain the Brazil eVisa online in just a few minutes.
Not only will it save the hassle of obtaining a traditional visa, the new Brazil visa for Japanese citizens will improve the process at the Brazilian border control by quickening waiting times. The information which was previously screened on arrival is now cross-checked during the online application process.
The Brazil eVisa allows Japanese travelers to enter Brazil for several purposes including tourism, business, transit, education and short-term medical treatment. The visa is valid for two consecutive years and permits multiple entries into Brazil. There is no limit on the number of trips to Brazil as long as the total amount of time spent in Brazil does not exceed 90 days a year.
How to apply for a Brazil eVisa from Japan?
Applying for the Brazil eVisa is straightforward and quick. The online application form only takes a few minutes to complete and is processed within five working days.
The Brazil visa online application form involves entering personal information (such as name, address, and date of birth) and passport details, as well as answering some questions related to security and health.
Applicants also have to provide a passport-sized photo as well as an up-to-date email address to receive the electronic visa. Once the application has been approved, the visa is sent to the traveler by email. Japanese citizens wishing to travel to Brazil can print a copy to present to the Brazilian border authorities, along with their passport, upon entry.
