Renewing Brazil Tourist Visa In Country – February 2017

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

The most recent visa renewal was done under a new process.  They had me go to the airport Federal Police ( DPF ) and give them my passport with entry form and they renew on the spot with no other supporting material required.  Trump must have made a change in the USA that is similar as they say they always mirror the procedure that the USA puts Brazilians through.
