Brazil’s E-visa Now Available for Certain Nationals

As an update to our previous article regarding changes to Brazil immigration laws and visa categories, the long-anticipated Electronic Visa (E-visa) was implemented on January 25, 2018. The E-visa is available to nationals of the United States, Canada, Australia, and Japan who are traveling for tourism and limited business activity. The E-visa, valid for up to two years and multiple entries, provides applicants with a more streamlined, application process. If you are unsure whether your business travel purpose qualifies for a Brazil E-visa, please reach out to EIG at
