For many countries, Brazil does not require a visa for short stays. However, for some countries, a visa is necessary. The time to obtain the visa and the costs can vary from country to country, and ILCC 2024 attendees should be mindful of this.
To request for a visa, foreign citizens must present a duly completed Visa Application Form, valid travel document, proof of payment of consular fees, International Certificate of Immunization - when necessary -, and other specific documents for the type of visa.
Observation: The yellow fever vaccination certificate is required for those who traveled in the ninety (90) days prior to their trip to Brazil to: Angola, Bolivia, Benin, Burkina, Cameroon, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ecuador, French Guiana, Gabon, Ghana, Gambia, Republic of Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, Peru, Sierra Leone, Sudan and Venezuela.

Electrical Socket and Voltage
ILCC 2024 participants should be aware of the electrical plug and socket types in Brazil (photo below) and consider bringing adapters to use their electronic devices. Adapters can also be purchased at the airport or local stores in Brazil. Additionally, it's important to note that in Rio de Janeiro, the voltage is 127 V.
