Brazil Tourist Visa Application In Lima, Peru

As of writing, Filipinos can visit Brazil for 90 days without applying for a visa beforehand. So I expect to sashay through Galeão–Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport's immigration counter without hassle about a couple of weeks from now. Awesome ain't it? The hubby and our daughter though, as Australians, applied for the tourist visa. If you happen to be in Peru and are looking into applying for a Brazil tourist visa (and frustrated cause you can't seem to find decent information online), then you've arrived at the right cyber space.


Requirements for tourist visa application:

1. Passport, which should be valid for a minimum of six months from the date of intended arrival in Brazil. Should have one page that's free of stamps.

2. Filled out/printed application form which could be downloaded here.

3. One recently taken passport size photograph (with plain white background). Should be attached on the visa application form.

4. A copy of round trip/onward ticket or copy of your itinerary (we submitted onward tickets and a copy of our hotel booking confirmation).

5. Copy of applicant's credit card. Bring original card in case consular officer asks for it.

6. Depending on your case, officer may ask for additional documents. We presented our daughter's birth certificate as well to prove that she's traveling with her parents.

7. Payment receipt from the bank. Tourist visa fee is $35 which must be paid at HSBC Bank Peru along Av. Jose Pardo (same street as the embassy's, just a few blocks away).

Application day, Embaixada Do Brasil:

1. Submission of documents can only be done in the morning, from 8:15 AM to 12:00 noon. The embassy is located in Miraflores (an affluent district swarmed by backpackers), Av. Jose Pardo 850, just walking distance from Parque Kennedy.

2. Hand in the application form, documents, and payment receipt at the counter. The embassy wasn't hectic when we applied on a Monday. You will then be given a claim stub. The visa processing usually takes four to five business days. Release of visa and documents is done in the afternoon, 3:30 to 4:30.

So there you go! Now prepare your skimpy suit for days of frolicking on the beaches of Copacabana or Ipanema, or doing the samba at the Carnaval!

great post! Gay, did they ask for any supporting documents for your travels to Brazil? like bank docs, return ticket etc, and automatic ba na 90days ang stamp or prerogative ng immigration kung ilang days bibigay nila? thanks!

Aleah, nailang si Luna sa photographer. But in fairness, she sat still. Mukha nga lang galit.

Thanks for the tips!

How oh how did you manage to get a finicky toddler to sit still for her picture?

My little panda's pic looks like he's about to fall on his side. (which incidentally is how I look on my very first passport too) Genes are funny

@pinaytraveljunkie nope for 2014 World Cup, nag-compute na ako ng expenses for the whole trip and realized I need to work my ass off para dito:p Anyhoo Olympics is on the 2016, if ever di ako makapunta ng 2014 then 2016 na lang:)

thanks for this info, gay! my friends and i have been eyeing brazil because there's no visa! hahaha! buti na lang, there's a credit card factor than the bank statement. i find that even more useful and sensible. pwede ka nga namang mag-travel without money as long as you have that precious little plastic card.

Buti nalang visa free ang mga PH passports sa Brazil... kaso ang layo nya. The nearest is USA transit but needs a visa there too. Europe is good transit too for no transit visa kaso ang layo ng byahe.

Killerfillers, oh yeah! Got confused with the two. Brazil would be even more pricey then :(

True Gladys, at last that policy sort of makes sense. Brazil can easily bust budgets though. Boo.

Ian, yep that sucks. It also means that a flight's gonna cost you heaps.

There is a reciprocal no-visa requirement between the Philippines and Brazil, right? That means you haven't changed citizenship. Any plans to become an Australian citizen?

Pinay Travel Junkie said...
February 4, 2012 at 11:04 PM

That's correct. If I wanna become an Oz citizen, for five years of residency in Australia, I could only be away for a collective of 12 months :)
