A Visa to enter Brazil is required for citizens of several countries. Please check with your travel agent or with a local Brazilian Embassy/Consulate whether or not this applies to you.

In case you need a Visa, the Brazilian Consulate will request that you include in your application file a Visa Recommendation Letter. To get your Letter, please, send an e-mail to [email protected], providing the following information:

- Name;
- E-Mail Address;
- Affiliation;
- Title of Presentation (if applicable);
- Postal Address (if the Brazilian Embassy/Consulate in your area requires the original).

The Visa recommendation letter will only be issued to speakers or attendees who have paid their registration fee. We will process your request and send the letter attached by e-mail. In case you need the original be sent by post, please, let us know.

Visa letters will state only the following facts:
Conference title, dates and location;
That the requester has paid the required registration fee in full;
Participation status: committee member, invited speaker, author or presenter.
