Visas for Artists or Athletes

An artist or an athlete participating in artistic or sport events in Brazil without a contract and without receiving payment for services rendered (air ticket, lodging and basic living expenses excluded) may be issued a short-time tourist visa.

In addition to meeting the requirements for a tourist visa, the artist or athlete must present a letter from the sponsoring party in Brazil stating the non-commercial nature of the event and that no payment for services rendered will be received.

For artists or athletes performing professionally, with a contract and receiving payment for services rendered, the sponsoring party must submit the application for a special kind of visa - Temporary Visa III.

4. Approval from the Ministry of Labour;
