Since no one has any good info posted on this procedure and the last decent info is from January and the procedure has changed, I will post the exact procedure that I just managed to complete. First of all you will need a passport sized photo and money. I'm Canadian and cost was 273 pesos but US was ~560 pesos. The consulate is open from 8am to 2pm Monday to Friday, located on Cordoba St. between El Mensu and Guarani Av. (note it is marked incorrectly on the official Missiones tourism, P. Iguazu map, way to go tourism office!). If you go to the consulate at 8am the nice gentleman will hand you a small slip of paper with instructions and tells you to return. The instructions are as follows and if you read them here you can skip this first visit and return with the form.
1. On the internet get to the site https://scedv.serpro.gov.br and fill out the form.
2.Print out the form after you complete it. sign it, stick photo to form.
3. Return with form to consulate, pay money, part with you precious passport.
So our hotel let us use the front desk computer, fill out the form and print the single page at the end of the procedure. Then we stuck on our photo, signed it and headed back to the office, paid our fee, handed over our passport and the man told us to return at 1:30pm to get our passport and visa back.
Note that you have to pay cash and you have to have exact amount or else overpay as we had to by 4 pesos...oh well only 1 loonie.
So you could easily do the online work before your trip and have everything ready and then just show up at 8am and hand over the form and money.
Hopefully this new info will help others, as I was searching without much luck for the procedure and it has changed since the last post from January. Otherwise, it is a very easy and efficient procedure once you know what to do.
As I type this I'm waiting for 1:30 to get the visa but it looks like it will all work out fine!
PS the visas are only for 30days, so if you need 90days then better to do it ahead of time in your home country or B. AiresEdited: 8:06 am, April 13, 2010
