Brazil Visa & Embassy Information

British citizens planning a holiday with a car hire in Brazil are allowed as tourists without a visa for a maximum initial stay of 90 days. However, any visitors must comply with Brazilian immigration laws upon arrival and inform the Federal Police (the Brazilian immigration authority) of the intended purpose of visit.

It is particularly important to be able to demonstrate that you have sufficient money to fund the duration of your stay, and that you also have details of your accommodation and a return airline ticket or evidence that you are going to leave the country by other means of transport. If not, there is a considerable risk of being denied entry into the country.

The British Embassy in Brazil is located in the capital city of Brasilia. For more information on UK Embassies around Brazil, refer to the website provided.
