A friend and I are flying into Brazil, but we have one way tickets which we have heard is a problem. Any ideas from anyone? We are thinking about buying the cheapest bus tickets we can find out of Brazil, but not having any luck over internet yet..
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
You'll find everything you need on this site: http://www.itapemirim.com.br/
It has a link to an English version, but when searching itineraries, has to be in Portugues.
Try, it's not hard.
I'm having a similar problem flying into Venezuela. It would appear that it's impossible to buy bus tickets on the internet (the wonders of modern technology eh). I even emailed the relevant bus company in my best Spanish and haven't recieved a reply so go figure. I gotta admit I've been having trouble getting any specific answers on this subject but I think I'm going to go to London as soon as I can and try to get a visa from the Venezuelan embassy there before I leave. Perhaps this would be an option for you if you have time.......?
thanks Tonya, but yep, youre right, i cant find much on the English version of the site which makes things a wee bit tricky. I think we might just have to take a gamble and arrive on a one-way ticket.
Thanks for the advice too Paul, but I dont need a visa for Brazil, so I dont think that method will work.
Thanks once again!
Hey Kiwiandrea just one quick point - the visa I mentioned is a tourist visa which I believe enables you to travel in the country for 90 days. As far as I know you get issued with your tourist card on the flight by the airline staff if you can show evidence of onward travel. I just had another thought too. If you can show evidence of sufficient finances (some people have said showing a major credit card is enough but I've also heard a recent bank statement with enough money to last you for your visit will do). It might be worth a phone call to your local Brasilian embassy or a visit to thier website.
I think it's a bit risky arriving with no onward ticket or visa it just creates more hassle!
Hope this helps
