Getting a Brazil visa at Iguazu falls?

I read there is a Brazil embassy at Iguazu Falls. We are planning a trip to Iguazu Falls from the Argentina side and want to visit the Brazil side. Can we still get a visa right there. I have read alot of different things. We are only there in Iguazu falls for two fulls. Can we get a visa to visit the Brazil side during our stay there. Please let us know the latest rules there, we can find no confirmed information.

The above are some information. Some have obtained visas in 24 hours (must pick up at 11 AM next day. This all depends on people wanting visas when you are there

Not much has changed. You fill out the application and submit. There is an email for the Vice Consulate for questions.

Just curious if you were able to get the visa. We may be trying the same thing in a couple of weeks.

Coming in 3 weeks may not be enough time unless you are near a Brazilian Consulate.

There is a Vice Consulate in Puerto Iguazu and if you complete the BR Visa Application and have the all the required documents and make an appointment, you can get a Visa in 1 day. It is cheaper but only good for 90 days I believe.

See my post #3 above

Hello M W,

Thank you for the great info!

I need an urgent advice/info! We are flying from Seattle in the beginning of August- we are making a loop- Lima, Buenos Aires, Iguazu, Lima-Cuzco. Unfortunately, somehow when we booked our flights our departure for Lima is from IGU- the airport on the Brazilian side of the Falls. We have no time to go Los Angeles and get visas to Brazil before the trip.

The problem is that if we don't bord our flight to Lima from IGU we lose all the flights after that.

LATAM and Expedia can't help.

I found this forum by accident and I'm hoping to be able to get visas at Iguazu.

Unfortunately the email for the Brazilian Consulate at Iguazu is incorrect.

We are staying at hotel St. George in Iguazu which is on the same street as the Brazilian Consulate.

Do you buy any chance know what are the office hours of the Brazilian Consulate?

Thank you so much!

welcome Sevda,

if you plan on joining the TA more in the future, you may want to start your own new thread. It will more than likely get the attention it deserves. You can also Private Message (PM) people on here too.

have you looked into getting your Brazil VISA in any of the places you plan on going before you go to IGU? Such as,

Lima ---

http://lima.itamaraty.gov.br/es-es/

Buenos Aires ----

http://cgbuenosaires.itamaraty.gov.br/pt-br/

http://buenosaires.itamaraty.gov.br/es-es/

One other comment.

It has been mentioned that the AR airport IGR?, maybe closed for a time this year for renovation or whatever. you may want to verify this and your day of departure. It maybe why you are booked out of IGU but I'm not sure since i have never had to be rerouted due to construction.

If you are there during the construction it may answer some questions and you may not need a VISA, but who really knows. I would guess that you would be shuttled to the airport to an area so you could depart and get into the security if any and then continue on with your journey.

on this subject you can contact the airlines you will fly in/out of regarding this. If they have any current info that is.

good luck

You need to follow the directions. Fill out app and submit for appt. This visa will not be for 10 tear, but get you what you need.

Need to go early and if lucky pick up by 2.

1. A passport that is valid for no less than 6 months, obviously.

2. A Brazilian visa application form, which can be filled out at https://scedv.serpro.gov.br.

Fill this out somewhere where you can print it, as you’ll need to bring the confirmation form to the consulate. The form asks for very basic information, including your passport details, address, address of your employer (I just put my last employer), and address of your contact in Brazil The form takes less than 10 minutes to fill out if you have all the information handy.

3. One passport photo, but it seemed as though the size didn’t really matter – It needs to be just like any other standard passport photo: light background, front viewing, nothing obscuring the face, no glare from glasses, etc. I always carry a few of these in my bag, so I had one already

4. Proof of means of support during your stay in Brazil, which could be a recent bank or credit card statement. 5. A return ticket, or proof of onward travel.

6. Payment of consular fees. I couldn’t find ANY information about how much Canadians pay online, so here is the list of fees they had posted at the consulate: Australia AR$175, Canada AR$325, Japan AR$125, Mexico AR$150, Nigeria AR$325, USA AR$800, “other countries” AR$100. You must have exact change, and it is payable in cash only (Argentinian pesos or Brazilian reals). Americans pay about 160USD. It’s pricey, but, at least for Canadians, passports are only accepted until 12pm, even though the office is open until 2pm. Edit again: a reader just informed me that she needed to hand in her passport before 10am, so best to get there as early as possible. AGAIN: Just get there really early
