Visa and Vaccination

VISA

Designed to help participants to meet administrative requirements in certain countries, official letters of invitation for entry visa or other purposes may be supplied upon request. Please allow sufficient time for this procedure. Note that such letters do not commit the Organizing Committee to any kind of financial support, hosting arrangement, nor does it guarantee an entry visa issue. Please, be advised that the invitation letters just will be issued by the Brazilian Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels Institute after the participant registration. Therefore, you should fill out the registration form as early as possible in order to get your visa in time for the Event. Participants are strongly advised to make sure they fulfill all legal requirements to enter Brazil. Besides a valid passport, an entry visa may also be required. Visas are required only for visitors coming from countries that require visas for Brazilian citizens.
