Submission of contract directly to the Brazilian Ministry of Labour (CIMT) for necessary approval; once obtained the necessary approval of contract by the Ministry of Labour, you can then submit your visa application to the Embassy or Consulate for processing of your visa.

You must enter Brazil within 90 days of the date the visa was issued or the visa is considered void and can no longer be used for entry.

If you decide to remain in Brazil beyond the 90-day limit, you can request a one-time extentsion of 90 days. However, your request should be made at nearest post of the Brazilian Federal Police Department at least 30 days before your time expires.

The time it takes to issue a Brazilian Business Visa depends on the consulate to which you are applying. Some consulates offer next-day processing while others take as much as 15 days.

Multiple entry visas:

• Multiple entry visas have a validity of 5 years and a duration of stay of 90 days.
• Multiple entry visas are issued at the discretion of the Brazilian Consulate and can be denied without reason by the Brazilian Consulate.
• Consular fees are the same for a 5 year multiple entry visa or a 3 month single entry visa.

The Brazilian Embassy and Consulates are jurisdictional. Visa applications are accepted at the consulate based on the state the applicant resides in. Each consulate has slightly different requirements and processing times therefore you must choose the requirements for your jurisdiction in order to apply for your visa.
