Tips for Getting a Visa for Brazil in Los Angeles

Bursting with white-sand beaches, tropical islands, thrilling nightlife and the fascinating Amazon rainforest, it’s no wonder Brazil is high on most travelers’ bucket lists.

And with the 2016 Olympics set for Rio de Janeiro, travelers now more than ever will be heading to the fun-loving beaches of this Latino country! But for US citizens, and especially Angelenos, getting there is no picnic.

Applying for the Brazilian visa is a process that can take a lot of time, money and hassle. My own journey to obtain a Brazil visa was nothing short of a nightmare.

Beach in BrazilHere are my tips on getting a Visa for Brazil in Los Angeles!

No, visas can’t be obtained at the airport. The process for getting a visa in LA is to book an appointment online (availability may not be for 2-3 months out), take your passport to the appointment, then leave your passport and wait 2-3 weeks for them to process your visa.

In the meantime, you can’t really do any other international travel because you are sans passport. There are only 10 consulates in the U.S.A. and you must submit your application to the one that has jurisdiction over your state of residence.

You will need at least 3-4 months advance to apply which, let’s be honest, few of us have when planning a big trip! So, be prepared or consider getting assistance with a visa agency.

When I went to schedule an appointment using the Brazil consulate’s online scheduler (one month before my trip) there weren’t any appointments available until the month after I was scheduled to return home from Brazil.

You may encounter this same scenario and will need to use a visa handler as a liaison may ease the application process.

Option (and my HIGH recommendation): use and Things to See & Do at the World Cup in Brazil.
