How to read a Brazilian Visa
How do I read my Brazilian visa?
The image above is a typical Brazilian visa. The visa is stamped on a blank visa page within your passport.
A: Issue date: To validate your visa, you must enter Brazil within 90 days of this date or the visa is considered invalid for entry.
B: Visa type: The visa above is a tourist visa. Business visas are issued with the particular sub class such as Type II or Type IV which would be clearly denoted on the visa itself.
C: Visa validity. The visa above is valid for 1825 days from the date of issue (A), or 5 years. The validity of the visa is issued at the sole discretion of the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate.
Additional Notes: At the very bottom of the visa there are two notes. The first note indicates "First entry within ninety days. Valid for multiple entries. Allows stay in Brazil up to 90 days for each entry. Extendable to a maximum 180 per year." You may extend your stay in Brazil if you petition the local authorities no later than the first 30 days of your visit. The government will then determine how much longer you may stay or extend your stay- the maximum allowable stay being 180 days per year.
The note below in red indicates that employment is not permitted with this type of visa.
