Visa Information

The Brazilian visa system operates under a strict reciprocity policy. That means that all citizens from countries which require visas from Brazilians will have to obtain visas to attend the conference

Foreign participants should get in touch with the nearest Brazilian Consulate (click on the map) to find out whether a visa is required.

Here you find the list of nationalities that are exempt from this requirement, see also the official Ministry of Tourism page, that includes the whole of the European Union and Mercosur. Those who do need visa should note that a tourist visa suffices for the conference attendance; for more information about Brazil, visit the official Brazilian Institute of Tourism website.
