Student Visa for Brazil
If you want to study Portuguese for an extended period of time, we can provide the acceptance letter for you to apply for your Brazilian Student Visa. As you can imagine, this involves a bureaucratic process that may take some time, so we only recommend that you go through this process if you plan to stay in Brazil for more than 90-days. For shorter periods, we recommend that you enter the country with a Tourist Visa.
