A visa is the document granted by Consular Representations of Brazil abroad that allows the entry and residence of foreigners in the national territory, provided that the conditions established by law have been met.

To apply for a visa, foreigners must submit the visa application form duly completed, a valid travel document, proof of payment of consular fees, International Certificate of Immunization - when necessary -, and other specific documents for the type of visa requested.

Visa Information

Visa requirements for Brazil are based on the principle of reciprocity—if Brazilian nationals are required to obtain a visa to visit your country, then you are likely required to obtain a visa for travel to Brazil. Please, consult your local Brazilian Embassy or Consulate for country-specific entry requirements that may apply to them. See: http://www.itamaraty.gov.br/en/brazilian-missions-abroad.

In the event that you are required to obtain a visa, we highly encourage you to begin the application process as soon as possible—with the caveat that entry into Brazil may be required within a specified period upon receipt of your visa.

Attendees are responsible for verifying and obtaining all required travel documents for Brazil.


Visa invitation letter

Official letters of invitation to support the visa application process, will be supplied through the online registration system. You will be able to see the visa letter button in your participant area after the payment of the registration fee.

Note that although invitation letters will be personalized, they do not commit the Organizing Committee or any of the parties associated with the conference to any kind of financial support or hosting arrangement, nor do they guarantee that an entry visa will be granted.

Please be advised that invitation letters will only be issued by 8TH WORLD WATER FORUM after the participant successfully registers for the conference. Therefore, you should fill out the registration form as early as possible in order to get your visa in time for the event.
