Travel/Visa

VISA REQUIREMENTS

In general, visa requirements depend on the home country of citizenship. Foreign participants should contact the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate in their home country as soon as possible to find out visa requirements and to apply in advance of their departure dates. Letters of invitation to attend the conference can be email if required by the participant.  It is important to emphasize that such letter of invitation will be issued only for the purpose of obtaining a visa and, by no means, implies an invited talk or a waiver of the registration fee.
