Passport and Visa Regulations

A visa is required for foreign citizens (including United States citizens) wishing to visit Brazil. The usual requirements to apply for a visa are: two passport-size photographs, proof of roundtrip airfare and the duly-completed application form in duplicate. Visas are generally processed within two working days.

Delegates are advised to check with the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate in their own country if a visa is required for the purposes of their visit to Brazil. Please mention the purpose of the trip, as 'meeting attendance' might have a different visa status in different countries. Delegates are also urged to process their visa requests at the earliest date possible, preferably at least three weeks before their scheduled travel date.

They must also bring a valid passport

Delegates should also be aware that, according to Brazilian health regulations, participants arriving from the following countries MUST carry an international health/vaccination card (issued by the World Health Organization) which states that a Yellow Fever vaccination has been taken no less than 10 days prior to departure:
