Below some topics of interest that you might know before traveling with us.
If you, the traveler, are outside the U.S, please check within the website Brazilian Consulate to see if your country of residence is required to obtain a Brazilian Visa.
Brazil requires U.S. citizens to carry a valid U.S. passport when traveling to Brazil for any purpose. There are no "airport visas" and immigration authorities will refuse entry into Brazil to anyone not possessing a valid visa. Travelers under 18 years of age and their parents should carefully review the visa application requirements. The adjudicating official at the Brazilian Embassy or consulate may require a birth certificate and notarized travel authorization to issue a visa to a minor.
U.S. citizens and other foreign travelers must fill out a small immigration form on arrival that will be stamped and handed back by immigration officials at the airport. It is important to retain this form to hand back to immigration officials upon exit from the country. According to the Brazilian Embassy's website, visitors who lose this form will have to get clearance from the Brazilian Federal Police to leave the country and may have to pay a fine.
Remember that while in Brazil, you are subject to local law. Showing contempt to a Brazilian government official at the port of entry, or elsewhere, is a serious offense.
