Once registration has been completed, a nominal invitation letter may be requested to support the process of obtaining an entry visa to Brazil, where necessary.

The Brazilian government has bilateral agreements on visas. This means that nationals of countries that require a visa for Brazilian citizens to enter their territory will also need a visa to travel to Brazil. Brazil has bilateral visa waiver agreements with around 90 countries. To find out if you need a visa to travel to Brazil, click here.

To apply for a visa, the foreign citizen must complete the visa application form, print proof of submission of the form and present it to a consular office in Brazil, together with a valid travel document, proof of payment of consular fees, the international vaccination certificate - if required - and other documents specific to the type of visa requested.

Here you will find specific instructions for the consular office you are interested in.

Brazilians and foreigners no longer need to present proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test to travel to Brazil. The decision was adopted by the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa), which has already informed airport operators, border posts and airlines about the new rule.
Health facilities including a dedicated medical team will be available at the meeting venue with ambulance services available for transport to an appropriate health facility, if required.
All sessions will be conducted either in English, Portuguese, Spanish or French. Interpretation services will be made to these languages.
Free WiFi Internet access will be available during the event. Internet access details will be available at the information balcony.
The organising team of the 22nd IOPD Conference will collect personal information to facilitate accreditation, accommodation, contacts and logistics related to the event.
