Visa information

The Brazilian visa system operates under a strict reciprocity policy.

That means that all citizens from countries which require visas from Brazilians will have to obtain visas to attend the conference. Beware that to attend a scientific conference in Brazil a tourist visa suffices. Source: Consulate General of Brazil

Foreign participants should get in touch with the nearest Brazilian Consulate (click on the map) to find out whether a visa is required.
