You can realize your planned trip to Brazil by obtaining a Brazilian tourist visa. The reasons for applying for this type of visa can be tourism, visiting family or friends, business trip, medical examination or treatment, short-term study, exchange programs and many other non-permanent nuances. If you want to study long-term in Brazil (such as bachelor's, master's, doctorate, etc.) or work permanently in an institution located here, you can also apply for a Brazilian national visa if you have official invitations or acceptance letters from those educational and work institutions.

In order to realize your short-term business trip, you apply for the "business visa" type of Brazilian visa. Note that a short-term business visa does not give you the right to work permanently in Brazil, this visa is provided for you to realize your own business trip.

Documents marked with "*" must be submitted to the embassy in English. If you have obtained the original of the document in Azerbaijani rather than in English, then each of these documents must be notarized and certified in English and submitted to the embassy.

If you do not have the original of the invitation letter, you can submit a scanned version to the embassy in printed form. The invitation letter must have the signature and seal of the institution that invited you. Also, on the invitation letter, the name of the invited person, that is, your name, and additionally, if possible, your date of birth, passport number, and travel dates should be mentioned. If your place of stay is organized by the institution that invited you, in this case, you may not include a hotel reservation in your documents if the address of your stay is mentioned in the invitation letter sent to you.

The amount in your bank account is based on your travel dates, i.e. the length of your stay in Brazil, the price of your booked flight tickets and hotels, etc. varies depending. In general, it is recommended that you have at least AZN 3,000-5,000 in your bank account for a one-week trip (equivalent to Euros or US dollars). This amount should fully cover your travel plan. When calculating the amount, you can add the price of your ticket and hotel reservations to the average daily cost of 60-70 dollars for each day you indicate that you will stay in the territory of the country and assume a little higher than the figure you received.

If your expenses are covered by the institution that invited you, this must be mentioned in the invitation letter. In this case, you may not provide a statement from your bank account, but in any case it is advisable to show a small amount in your account in your name.

If you are an entrepreneur, you can submit the documents that will replace the reference from the workplace (a copy of the TIN is sufficient) to the embassy. If you are not working, studying or in any case providing another personal sponsor to cover the costs of your trip, in this case a copy of that person's identity card, proof of employment (if self-employed, documents listed above), bank account statement and statement (this bank account it can be in your name or in the name of the sponsor), if you have a family bond, a document confirming this (for example, if it is your parents, your own birth certificate, if it is a brother or sister, both of your birth certificates, etc.) and a paper about sponsorship to the embassy must be submitted. If the applicant is under 18 years of age, in this case, if he is traveling alone, a copy of the permission document to leave the country from both parents or, if he is traveling with one of his parents, the other parent must also be submitted during the visa application.

It should be noted that even if you submit documents such as TIN sponsorship paper, or permission paper, you must have each of these documents translated into English and certified by a notary.

An application for a Brazilian visa is made to the Brazilian embassy in Baku. The decision is made by the consul in the consular department of the embassy.

For a tourist visa, it usually takes 3-5 working days to receive a visa response.

The visa fee is 152 AZN. After submitting his documents to the embassy, he is given a check for the payment of the visa fee. According to this check, the applicant should make the payment at the main building of the International Bank of Azerbaijan (67 Nizamik Street) and submit the receipt of the payment to the consulate on the same day.

Probability of Obtaining a Brazil Visa

As when applying for a visa at the embassy of all countries, your chances of getting a visa in Brazil depend on the state of your profile. Your workplace and position should be normal, your monthly income should be in the standard salary range (in experience, visas have been obtained for people with monthly income in the range of 300-500 AZN, there have been many cases), you should show enough money in your bank account to cover your entire trip, the nuances that bind you to the country (having property in your name), the presence of your family and children) and your travel history are factors that increase your chances of getting a Brazilian visa. The Brazilian embassy is not considered a high-risk embassy for people with no previous travel history, that is, without Schengen or other visa holders. In our experience, many applicants got their first visas from this embassy. Of course, for this, all your other documents must be in order. When applying for a business visa, the official letter of invitation that you will present can significantly increase your chances of getting a visa. If the purpose and reason for your trip stated in your invitation letter is related to your field of work or if you have previously made similar business trips, these nuances will have a positive impact on your profile.
