How to go


Portuguese citizens do not need a visa for tourist visits and obtain a stay permit for 90 days.


Malaria prevention is necessary if you plan to visit the Amazon region, especially Acre, Amape, Amazonas, West Maranhao, northern Mato Grosso, Pará, Rondonia, Roraima and Tocantis. You must also be vaccinated against yellow fever if you plan to enter one of the neighboring countries identified as problematic, such as Bolivia.

Know that mainly during and after the rainy season, several areas of Brazil, including Rio de Janeiro, are plagued by epidemics of Dengue.

Especially if some of the places in the Amazon mentioned above are in your plans, before leaving for Brazil, you should contact the Clínica de Medicina Tropical e do Viajante, Av. da Liberdade, 129, 7º Dto, tel. 21 322 5622.
