Obtaining An Apostille Certification
The “Apostille Convention” facilitates the use of public documents abroad, abolishing the traditional requirements of legalization. Public documents issued by a U.S. state court must have an Apostille seal issued by the same state, in order to be used in Brazillian government affairs. Typically, Apostilles can be used in these scenarios:
- Divorce: If there is a Brazillian marriage certificate but a divorce decree is issued by a U.S. state, an Apostille must be issued for the divorce to be valid in Brazil.
- Death: In order to transport the body or remains of a Brazillian citizen from the U.S. to Brazil, certain documents (death certificate, cremation certificate, transit permit) must have an Apostille certification.
- School Transcripts or Records: To use U.S. school or university documents in Brazil, the documents must have an Apostille certification.
- Registration with the Brazillian Federal Police: For non-Brazilians residing in Brazil for more than 90 days on a temporary visa, an original birth certificate with Apostille certification must be presented.
Due to COVID-19, Visa applications are currently suspended. Brazil only offers one type of visa — a general visa that all who enter Brazil (that are not visa-exempt) must obtain.
Obtain a General Visa:
- Visas are limited to 90-day entries in Brazil, for a maximum period of 180 days altogether
- Americans, Canadians, Australians, and Japanese citizens are VISA EXEMPT
- All other citizens need to obtain a visitor’s visa
- Visa turnover time is approximately 5 business days
