Depending on the purpose of visit and on the visitor’s nationality, a visa is not required to enter Brazil. EU citizens on a tourism or business trip to Brazil, for instance, are exempt. For other cases, check below at “How to apply for a visa” whether you are exempt or not. Even if you are exempt from a visa, on arrival in Brazil you must produce a passport valid for at least six months.
Argentinians, Bolivians, Chileans, Colombians, Ecuadorians, Paraguayans, Peruvians and Uruguayans are exempt from passport requirement to enter Brazil as tourists. Nationals from these countries may simply produce their national identity cards instead.
Additionally, you may be required by the Brazilian Migration Police (Polícia Federal) to meet the following conditions:
1) Prove you have sufficient funds for your term of stay.
2) Demonstrate your travel objective (for instance, by means of a hotel reservation and a roundtrip ticket, in case of a tourism trip).
