US Embassy and Consulates Resume Visa Issuance on Nov. 8th


We would like to inform you that the US Embassy and Consulates in Brazil will resume, as of November 8, 2021, the issuance of all types of visas. Appointed interviews can be rescheduled for a closer date, according to availability. The policy announced by the Biden government, effective as of November 8, states that fully immunized travelers must present, before boarding, proof of vaccination – including name, date of birth, vaccinated product and dates of administration of all doses – and a negative PCR or antigen test done within three days of the travel. All vaccines approved in full and for emergency use by the FDA and the World Health Organization (WHO) will be accepted, including the vaccine mix. The final dose must be administered at least two weeks before departure to the US. Children and adolescents up to 17 years of age do not need to present proof of vaccination, but must have a negative test performed in the same period as the accompanying adults.

This new travel system replaces existing restrictions for Brazil and other countries, implementing a consistent approach across the world. Check out the complete list of vaccines on the WHO website.
