ETIAS Visa Waiver for Travelers From Brazil

In this article

Brazil will be a member of the EU's new ETIAS (European Travel Information Authorisation System) visa waiver for all travel amongst nations part of the Schengen agreement. The visa waiver gives Brazilian holders the right to travel in the entire Schengen area for three months. The new visa comes in from the start of 2023. Short-term travel until 2023 will still require Brazilians to get a regular visa.
The ETIAS visa waiver scheme comes in response to growing international threats. A new refugee crisis comes to Europe, terrorist threats and the existential threat of foreign espionage. The ETIAS visa waiver will hopefully allow the EU to better screen individuals coming into the EU. Brazilians will use the ETIAS visa to prove that they are a low-risk traveller.

Will Older Adults Brazilians and Underage Brazilians Need The ETIAS Visa Waiver?

Yes, they will all need ETIAS visa waivers to travel to any of the Schengen area. However, their applications will be more straightforward as they will not need to pay anything for their application fee.

When Will Brazilians Need a Full Visa?

Brazilians will need a different visa to go to European nations not part of the Schengen agreement. There are many such nations in Europe, including those inside and outside of the EU. Countries like Russia and the UK are included in this.
The borders of these nations are closed. Brazilians must go to an embassy of the nation they want to go to discuss which visa will be required.
Sometimes, a visa will be required rather than an ETIAS Visa Waiver for Travelers From Brazil going into the Schengen agreement nations. A visa is required for Brazilians that wish to travel for longer than the three-month ETIAS period, or are unable to achieve a successful application.

Documentation Required for Brazilian's To Be Awarded With An ETIAS

It should not require much time for Brazilians to prepare the necessary documentation to complete their ETIAS visa application. Only a passport, proof of address, and credit or debit card is going to be required. The lack of required documentation will add to the ease of the application process.

What Information Will Brazilians Need to Provide?

Brazilians can find out precisely the information needed in by looking at the online form. The questions are broadly simple matters questions of personal information.
  • Full name
  • Parents basic information
  • Date of birth
  • Birthplace
  • Detailed travel itinerary
  • Past travel to Europe.
Other questions will screen Brazilians to guarantee the safety of the EU and the Schengen area. They are on if the applicant has…
  • Connections to terrorist groups
  • Travelled to conflict zones
  • Human trafficking connections
  • Background in the illegal drugs or weapons trade
Cross-references of Brazilians' answers with their documentation and security databases will define which Brazilians are awarded with an ETIAS.
If Brazilians complete their applications correctly, they will usually be successful. Similar schemes to the ETIAS visa waiver have 95% of applications approved, with most approvals happening within one working day. Sometimes, further documentation will be required. This will be rare and increase the response time to three working days.

Why Might Brazilians Receive Rejections?

Brazilian citizens must ensure that they tell the truth and do not falsify any information on their application. Even if all the information they provide is correct, Brazilians can still have their application denied. There are alternative reasons for application failure centre around the safety of the EU. They are concerns about the Brazilian's itinerary and cross-references showing that they have a criminal or terrorist background.
Brazilians should not accept defeat if they do not succeed at first. Normally, Brazilians can deal with the issues by providing further documents. They will have four days to supply the needed extra documentation but will then have to wait four weeks for a response.
