Visa Requirements for Entry into Brazil

We are excited to welcome participants to the 70th International Congress of Meat Science and Technology in Brazil! To ensure a smooth entry into the country, please be aware of the following visa requirements.

Brazil operates under reciprocity policies, meaning that visa requirements depend on your nationality. If your country requires a visa for Brazilian citizens to enter, then you will need a visa to enter Brazil for the event.

Please check with the Brazilian consulate or embassy in your home country to determine the specific visa requirements and procedures. It is advisable to start this process well in advance of your planned travel dates.

Here are a few key points to consider:

1. Reciprocity Policies: Some countries have reciprocity policies with Brazil, requiring visas for entry. Ensure you are aware of the specific requirements for your nationality.

2. Visa Application Process: Contact the Brazilian consulate or embassy in your home country to understand the visa application process. Gather all necessary documents and information before applying.

3. Processing Time: Visa processing times can vary. Plan ahead and submit your application well in advance to avoid any last-minute issues.

4. Travel Itinerary: Be prepared to provide details of your travel itinerary, including your event registration confirmation, accommodation details, and return flight information.

5. Entry without a Visa: Some countries have agreements with Brazil that allow citizens to enter without a visa for a specific duration. Confirm whether your country falls under this category.
