Athlete & Artist Permit

An artist or an athlete participating in artistic or sport events in Brazil without a contract and without receiving payment for services rendered (air ticket, lodging and basic living expenses excluded) may be issued a short-time tourist visa. Visas may be obtained in person or through a visa service/visa agency. In addition to meeting the requirements for a tourist visa, the artist or athlete must present a letter from the sponsoring party in Brazil stating the non-commercial nature of the event and that no payment for services rendered will be received.
