Applying for a Brazilian Visa in Sydney Australia

I just thought I would post this for reference if any other Australians visiting Brazil. As a point of clarification, not all nationalities require visas, and the procedure is different for each office/country.

www.brazilsydney.org/VISAInformation/Info Tourist Visa.pdf

The Sydney office covers Residents of NSW, QLD and NT. Residents of VIC, WA, SA and ACT must apply at the Embassy of Brazil in Canberra.

Cost for lodging in person is AUD 49.00 payable only by an Australia Post Money Order made out to the Consulate General of Brazil. The cost by mail or 3rd parties is AUD 63.00. One money order can be combined for several applications. The post office charged about $4.00 for the money order.

We are taking a cruise from Cape Canaveral to Rio, my mother and my daughter are continuing on around the Cape and back to Los Angeles.

My husband took the forms in with passports, itineraries issued by our TA and a notarised letter of authority for our 17 yr old daughter to the offices in Market St in the heart of Sydney. She is continuing on with my mother from Rio where DH and I disembark. The Itineraries showed our cruise itinerary and our flights to Iguazzo and onto Buenos Aires. DD had her itinerary from the online cruise agency.

DH phoned me from the Consulate - they needed an itinerary which showed date of departure from Australia and date of arrival back in Australia. Now we are doing a quite complicated trip to Europe via Canada and the US, and back to Orlando, and aren't travelling on the same flights etc. I quickly downloaded different flight bookings from airline sites and faxed them to the Consulate. They told DH, all was fine and to pick up the visas on Friday.

They didn't need the letter of authority for DD as she will be entering Brazil with us, I used a form supplied by RCI so at least I have it ready to give to my mother for RCI for legs 2&3.

Fingers crossed we pick them up with no further issues. Compared to some of the problems fellow American cruisers have experienced getting their visas, perhaps ours was relatively painless, and a lot cheaper.
