Visa Information

Brazilian authorities have clear rules for issuing visas to foreigners. Attendees are responsible for determining their own entry requirements to Brazil. If you haven not done it, we ask you to start the process at least six months before the conference. Participants are strongly advised to ensure that they meet all legal requirements to enter Brazil. In addition to a valid passport, you may also need a visa and invitation letter. We strongly suggest that participants and international exhibitors obtain a business visa to make entering Brazil easier.

Invitation letter for Visa

Designed to help participants to meet administrative requirements in certain countries, official letters of invitation for entry visa or other purposes will be supplied upon request through (EMAIL). Please, make sure to provide enough time for this procedure. Also note that such letters do not commit the Organizing Committee to any kind of financial support, hosting, or warrant that the entry visa will be issued. Please be advised that the Brazilian Association of Soil Mechanics will only issue invitation letters after the registration of participants at the event. Therefore, you must complete the registration form as soon as possible in order to get your visa in time for the event. Participants are advised to make sure that they meet all legal requirements to enter Brazil. In addition to a valid passport, you may also need a visa. Visas are required only for visitors from countries that require visas for Brazilian citizens.
