How do I get a visa to travel to 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. Check the FCDO advice for the most up to date information.
What travel insurance do I need for Brazil?
Brazil travel insurance can either be as part of an annual multi-trip policy or, if you’re only going away once this year, you can choose single trip travel insurance to Brazil. If you’re buying an annual multi-trip policy, Brazil is covered under ‘worldwide’.
How much is travel insurance to Brazil?
Brazil is covered under our worldwide travel insurance region, meaning that policies are more expensive than those for travel to Europe. The exact price of your Brazil travel insurance will depend on factors such as your age, your health, and how long you’ll be staying.
Is there an age limit on Brazil travel insurance?
No, there isn’t. Our seniors travel insurance has no upper age limit and worldwide policies will cover Brazil.
Can travel insurance to Brazil cover medical conditions?
Yes. At InsureandGo we consider all medical conditions, no matter where you’re travelling. If you have a condition that you need to declare, don’t worry – we have travel insurance for medical conditions.
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 Brazil 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.
