The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Brazil launched on November 21, 2017 the “Electronic Visitor Visa Program – E-VISA” for citizens of four countries: Australia, Canada, the US and Japan.
The planned dates for the entry into operation of the electronic visa are the following:
- November 21, 2017, for Australian nationals;
- January 11, 2018, for Japanese nationals;
- January 18, 2018, for Canadian nationals, and
- January 25, 2018, for US citizens.
The Brazilian E-visa will cost USD 40, which is substantially cheaper than the traditional visa, and will have a maximum validity of two years.
The eVisa is valid for only for 2 years and the length of stay for the visitor’s visa will be 90 days per year. Provided all required documents are submitted correctly, e-visas are normally issued within 4 – 5 working days of your application.
In 2016, Brazilian consulates in these four countries accounted for 63.74% of the Brazilian tourism visa demand worldwide and for 58.15% of the demand for business visas.
