We are visiting Iguazu falls end of February just for 1 day (we stay in Argentinian side). As we live in Perth we sent our passports to Brazilian Embassy in Canberra end of December by registered mail. I made sure we enclosed all the required paperwork plus money order. Their website says it will take 20 working days and they will strictly not answer any questions or enquiry regarding visa. Although I worried, as we don't have enough time to obtain visa in Argentina, we had no choice but sent anyway.
Now I worry a lot as I haven't even received "lodgement receipt" by the Embassy from Australia Post which I arranged when I mailed. A.post says they have definitely received so don't worry.
Has any Australian in this furum done same thing before? Please give me your story for my peace of mind.
