Brazil

The 5th largest country in the world, Brazil is almost a continent itself, stretching across nearly half of South America. From its old-growth tropical forests, home to the powerful Amazon River, to the impressive Iguazu falls and the Pantanal tropical wetlands, Brazil is a place where to experience nature’s wonders and paradise-like beaches. Smiling Brazilians, samba music at every street corner and refreshing caipirinhas will surely add great value to your trip

On arrival, you'll receive an entry stamp and complete an arrival card, which has a carbon copy. The entry stamp or carbon copy must be presented to immigration authorities on departure. If you have neither, you'll need a police report (for a stolen passport) or evidence of your arrival in Brazil (airline tickets).

If you intend to leave Brazil and return during your trip, make sure that you get an exit stamp in your passport from Brazilian immigration when you depart.
