  • Invitation Letter

Conference participants will be able to obtain a Letter of Invitation for visa purposes once they have completed the registration process.

  • Visa Application (Tourist Visa)

According to the Brazilian government:

The tourist visa will be issued to foreigners traveling to Brazil on a temporary basis, without purposes of immigration or the exercise of paid activity. Tourist visas can be granted for those traveling for tourism or to artistic competitions, sports competitions, conferences, seminars or meetings, among other purposes – provided there is no payment or remuneration of any type. 

Yellow Fever Vaccination

There has been an increase in reported cases of yellow fever in Brazil.

The WHO and the Ministry of Health of Brazil and Epidemiological Vigilance recommend the immunization against yellow fever before travelling to the city of São Paulo.

As the quarantine requirements for yellow fever vaccination differ between countries, check the yellow fever entry requirements for all countries you intend to transit.
