Whether you are preparing to enter the immense green jungle of Manaus or the concrete jungle of São Paulo, if you are traveling to Brazil for business, you’ll need a visa for Brazil and you'll want to read these expert tips for US citizens.

Which Type of Brazilian Business Visa Will I Need?

Brazil offers two distinct types of business visas.

The VITEM-II is exclusively for business trips to attend meetings or as an exhibitor in a trade fair where the traveler will not provide any services.

The VITEM-V is required for working in Brazil including any provision of services.  

Working in Brazil is a privilege, not a right and all US citizens applying for a VITEM-V must be sponsored by a Brazilian employer. It is the employer who will submit for a work permit from the Brazilian Ministry of Labor on the US citizen’s behalf. On average, it takes 30-90 days to obtain a work permit approval after which the US Citizen can apply for a VITEM-V work visa.
