Visitor Visa (VIVIS) - Tourism and Transit

Overview

  • Visitor Visas (VIVIS) are aimed at those travelling to Brazil for maximum stays of up to 90 days, without the intention to establish residence, for the purposes of tourism and transit.
  • Foreign nationals from Countryes with which Brazil holds visa exemption agreements benefit from Visitor Visa (VIVIS) waiver.
  • VIVIS holders are strictly forbidden to practice any paid work in Brazil, but are allowed to receive payments from the government, a Brazilian employer or a private entity for the purposes of daily allowances, artistic paychecks, compensation or travel expenses, as well as to receive cash prizes in sports, artistic or cultural competitions.
  • Transit in national territory: a VIVIS will not be required in case of a stopover or flight connection in Brazil, as long as the visitor does not leave the international transit zone and holds a single ticket (under a single booking reference, stating both the origin and the final destination, regardless of multiple stops or multiple carriers). If the traveler does not benefit from visa waiver and holds separate tickets, having to go through border / passport control when disembarking, s/he must obtain a VIVIS.

Validity period: limit date / deadline for the first entry in Brazil to take place – counted from the date of issue of the visa.
