LaGuerita has indicated that this thread is about Brazil

Hi!

I would like to go to Brazil in April/May. My plan is to go to Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, etc. first and then head to Brazil. The thing is, I don't know if I will make it to Brazil or not.

My question...

How hard is it to get a Visa for Brazil in Peru, for example, or some other country?
Is it easier to get the visa in the states, first?

Thank you,
La Guerita

If the american ambassy works similarly to that of the Netherlands, it will be rather complicated to get a visa issued from abroad. But best ask your question directly to the US ambassy/consulate in Peru; they will know best.

Hey,

Would anybody know what the consequences are if you exceed ur visa? The thing is, i go for an internship to the galapagos for a period of 6 months and fly in to guayaguil. So, first of all i would have to go up all the way to quito to register and secondly i would have to either cross the border after three months to get my visa renewed (but thats expensive since i would have to fly in and out from the islands) or i would have to obtain a visa in holland what also would cost me 200 euros...
So, what would be the consequence if I just take the visa in the airplane for 3 months and be 3 months overdue by the time I leave the country..?

Thnx

Okay... wow... completely lost on what people are saying. But as for the Brasilian Visa... it is safer to get one in the States. It is completely feasible in the other countries... it is just that weird things happen... like they give you validity for only 30 days instead of 5 years... crazy crap. Definetely safer to do in the States where they explain everything to you in English rather than Portuguese.

As for the person commenting on parts of Ecuador. DonĀ“t need a visa last time I checked and went there... about a year ago... so check your stuff before freaking out...

Take Care...
