Guidelines for Spanish Citizens

Pursuant to the guidelines issued to Diplomatic Representations abroad, the requirements to be met by Spanish tourists entering Brazil, based on strict reciprocal treatment, are the following:

a) valid passport;
b) round trip ticket (the return date must be indicated on the ticket);
c) proof of sufficient financial resources for subsistence for the length of their stay in Brazil. This amount should correspond to at least R$ 170.00/day and demonstrated, for example, by presentation of a major credit card with the latest statement of account for verification of the credit card limit;
d) for those staying in a hotel: a document proving payment of hotel reservation; or
e) for those staying in a private residence: invitation letter from an individual resident in the Brazilian city of destination informing the period of stay of the Spanish tourist, signed by the  declarant  and certified by a Brazilian notary public, and accompanied by proof of residence issued to the declarant. (Note: Since there is no specific form for the invitation letter, a statement by the interested party containing the information above shall suffice).

Business travelers must present documentary evidence of the activities to be performed in said capacity during their stay in Brazil; otherwise they will receive the same treatment as tourists.

If you have questions, refer to the nearest Brazilian Consulate.
