Brazil Business Visa FAQ
What is the difference between Business visa and Work visa?
A business visa is given for applicants who want to carry out some
business-related activities but are not seeking full-time employment in
the country. On the other hand, a work visa is obtained by individuals
who intends to work in Brazil with the approval of the Brazilian
Ministry of Employment. The process of acquiring a "Work visa" is
started by the potential employer in Brazil. Once the approval is
issued, an authorization will be conveyed to the Brazilian Consulate/
Embassy on the applicant's country and the visa will be released.
If a person is self-employed, does he/ she need to present any additional requirements?
Yes. A self-employed individual who intends to travel to Brazil
for a business trip, must provide a bank statement that would serve as
proof that sufficient financial resources are available to support his
or her stay. The Embassy or Consulate will be the one to gauge if an
individual's funds are enough to sustain the stay in Brazil.
Is it possible to obtain the visa upon arrival in Brazil?
No. A Brazilian Visa
must be issued before travel. If you do not have a valid visa when you
arrive at the airport to depart, you will not be allowed to board the
plane going to Brazil. If circumstances permitted you to arrive in
Brazil, the immigration officers will eventually discover your
illegitimacy and you will be deported to the country where
you came from.
Can a third-party apply on a person's behalf?
Yes, as long as the person doing it resides within the Brazilian
consular jurisdiction. An appointment at the appropriate Embassy or
Consulate is required. The person must bring the necessary requirements
needed for the visa application. He/ she can only make a single
transaction for visa application in every scheduled appointment. Also,
there is an additional fee in processing the visa application submitted
by a third party.
