Local laws and customs

Do I need a visa for Brazil?

As a British citizen with a valid passport, you don’t need a visa to travel to Brazil and can stay in Brazil for a maximum of 90 days as a tourist. However, you still must satisfy the Federal Police (the Brazilian immigration authority) upon arrival and may need to show proof of sufficient funds for the duration of your stay, as well as details of your accommodation and a return/onward ticket.

If you want to extend your visa, you have to apply for an extension at the Federal Police.


Healthcare in Brazil

British citizens are entitled to use Brazilian public hospitals for emergency treatments. However, in big cities like Sao Paolo or Rio de Janeiro, hospitals tend to be overcrowded and may lack in medication. There are private hospitals available, which may reject you if you can’t show an appropriate travel insurance policy or evidence of enough money to cover unexpected medical treatments. You must contact InsureandGo if you go into hospital or before incurring medical expenses in excess of £500.
