I'm travelling around Brazil by bike, and as it's a large country and a bicycle is a slow means of transport, I don't have enough time on my vias to finish my planned trip.

If I overstay my visa in Brazil, am I likely to have problems entering OTHER countries in the future?
I guess any black mark against your name isn't the best option, but I can't afford to leave for 6 months and come back on the same trip.

Many countries provide for an extension - contact the nearest travel agent for info

I'd also try and get an extension, but failing that, why not hop over the border and hop back in? If you are biking around Brazil, then you are staying close to the borders I imagine?

Yeah the problem is even with the extension it's only 6 months, and also I'm travelling by the coast but if I could hop a border I would have to stay out for another 6 months before re-entry, hence the problem..
Otherwise I'd agree with you both completely.

Well sounds like your only solution is to marry someone and buy a tandem! :)

I found this article on overstaying in Brazil.

If you plan to overstay your welcome I hope that you can speak Portuguese. Good luck
