Unfortunately the new Brazilian government has decided to return with the demand for a tourist visa for citizens from the USA, Canada, Australia and Japan. This requirement takes effect from October 1st 2023 and will be checked upon entering Brazil.

Tourists arriving in Brazil in September 2023 and leaving in October will NOT need a tourist visa, only a valid passport, as usual.

Probably the process to get a tourist visa will be entirely online and should be easy to complete. Once we have more information we will update this blog post.

UPDATE: The Brazilian government has again postponed this requirement for 2025. So for anyone travelling in 2024, there is no need to apply for a tourist visa in the cases mentioned above.
