|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Graceee: 12:38am On Sep 07|
can someone apply for a visa now to travel in august to brazil
please guru answer the above..
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Graceee: 12:49am On Sep 07|
I meant August 2020.
Can one start applying soon/ this month or wait till nest year??
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Samuelsoma: 3:24pm On Sep 07|
No thats quite too early, you should wait till next year, most times when the visa is issued, you are expected to travel within three months from the date of visa issuance. so you cant apply now if you still planning to travel next year august.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by pertruchi: 12:57pm On Sep 08|
Pls house. I’m planning of giving birth in Brazil anytime soon. I have a valid US visa,will that be a plus in getting Brazil visa? How true is the pregnancy test at the Lagos embassy when applying? How much is the all cost for the Visa. And I don’t mind getting latest info from any latest applicants. Thanks
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 1:20pm On Sep 08|
Hey pertruchi. Having a valid US visa is definitely a plus. In fact, after the Brazilian President passed a decree allowing citizens of the US, Canada and Japan to come to Brazil visa free from June this year, he has suggested allowing the same visa free regime to holders of valid visas from the US and Canada. According to the President, those embassies have already done the job that is supposed to be done by the Brazilian consulates. Though the law has not yet been passed for US valid visa holders, i am saying this to let you know that you have an upper hand in obtaining the visa.
Brazil is a well developed nation that respects human rights. I truly doubt such a country will ask you specifically for a pregnancy test. Though I heard it from this platform, I personally have not heard anyone in my circle being asked for such test. It is extremely unlikely if not illegal and unconstitutional.
For information on visa fee and others, please refer to the official consulate website.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 1:31pm On Sep 08|
To be honest, birth tourism is not yet a problem in Brazil. Many people don’t even know about it. If it is to be a worry then the biggest concern will be Russian women who come to Brazil just to give birth because they have visa free access to the country. But even that, it is not yet a problem.
What the problem is actually, is the fact that many of our fellow Nigerians enter Brazil as tourists and immediately seek Asylum. Because the asylum application process is extremely slow in Brazil, they take advantage and stay for many years.
The other problem is our own fellows who come here to take part in criminal activities. Brazil already has its fare share of criminals and does not want more criminals in the country.
These are the real worries of the Brazilian authorities towards us and not birth tourism. Brazil economy relies heavily on tourism hence they allow many countries visa free. If you are a Nigerian and can prove that you are a genius tourist, you should get the visa with extreme ease.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by pertruchi: 1:39pm On Sep 08|
Thanks for this response. I’m so happy to hear that. Then I think I should start working on getting all my required documents for the Visa.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by folmus: 3:28pm On Sep 08|
I have reported a first hand case on this platform; the situation might differ from countries you are applying from. Yes the authority in Brazil did request the embassy where the person applied for to provide preg test and got denied because of that. So it may not be applicable to every country. I have ready it on other platforms too that Brazilian embassies now ask for preg tests. Does it apply to Nigeria? I can't say as the person applied outside of Nigeria.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 4:21pm On Sep 08|
Thanks folmus. You are right. It may depend from country to country. I think for now the consulate in Nigeria is ok. We pray they don’t start asking such things soon. Cheers
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Samuelsoma: 6:53am On Sep 10|
as for the pregnancy test, I am aware that the brazilian embassies in some countries are already requesting for preggy test and i remember someone mentioned it here too that the consulate in nigeria asked the wife for it and hence they were denied visa, however, you should make inquiries well or. Good luck
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 7:34am On Sep 10|
Hi Samuelsoma. I think there was only one incidence of pregnancy test mentioned on this platform and it was not by the consulate in Nigeria. I stand to be corrected. Thanks
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 7:46am On Sep 10|
During the Zika outbreak, many Brazilian consulates updated their website instructing pregnant travelers on tourist visa on how to protect themselves against the disease. Most of this information are still found on many Brazilian consulates websites.
The point i am trying to make is that being pregnant doesn’t disqualify you from obtaining a Brazilian tourist visa. I believe folma’s friend’s incident which happened in another country. Because we don’t really know the circumstances leading to the pregnancy request, i will just say that pregnancy may not have been the main reason for the refusal.
This does not however mean that you should apply for the visa when you are obviously showing. Use common sense i will say.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 8:09am On Sep 10|
If you wait and apply for the visa after your pregnancy is showing and then appear at the Consulate, then it is obvious that you are not going for tourism at that stage and your visa will be denied not because you are pregnant but because your real purpose of the visit could not be established by the VO.
If you are pregnant and not yet showing then you are good to go because pregnant women in their early stages are allowed to travel safely for tourism or whatever reason.
This is the difference. Some people apply for Brazilian visas late in pregnancy maybe because they did not know about this opportunity and some because Brazil is their last choice. I would say, if you want to give birth in Brazil, let it be your first choice. Brazil is the only country in the world that will make the entire family benefit from a child being born there. Why don’t you secure your entire family’s future first and then think of giving birth in the USA or Canada with your next child? After all, the Brazilian passport is as powerful as the American one.
You give birth in the US and then later denied tourist visa meaning you cannot even visit the country with your own American baby. That passport will be useless until your child turns 18 and can settle in the US alone.
I’m not saying don’t give birth in the US, all I’m saying is that set your priorities right. First things first. Now that my entire family is getting a Brazilian passport, my next child can safely be born in the US. With my Brazilian passport, i have a 95% of securing a US visa. Even if I’m refused, my child will still be Brazilian. Don’t follow the crowd.
I can even give birth in Chile without a visa on my current Brazilian PR or Passport and my baby becomes Chilean. A Chilean passport takes you to US, Canada and Australia visa free.
Your choices becomes endless with giving birth in Brazil. Be smart.

|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by daddyorion: 12:33pm On Sep 10|
Bless your soul madam.
I discovered the thread a few days ago, and i have read from the first page till here. Thanks for been so ready to help and always informative. I would have loved to take this route, but unfortunately wifey is already 38 weeks. I however, have started plans towards next year for another baby, in brazil, so that this baby, the next one and the whole family can benefit for the passport.
Now to my question.
1. Do you think it is a good idea to make Brazil a permanent home, cos i don't intend coming back though. I understand that i need to learn the language, and it wont be a problem.
I am an architect and a freelance career coach.
2. Do you think a $10k USD is sufficient for the whole process?
I look forward to your response.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by pertruchi: 1:49pm On Sep 10|
Thanks for the Info.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 2:10pm On Sep 10|
Hey daddyorion. Thank you and nice move.
Q1: It all depends. Everyone has different tastes. I can however tell you that when it comes to equal opportunities and opportunities in general, Salary, education, health and travel freedom with country documents, Brazil is faaaaaar better than Nigeria.
You and Your children will benefit from free quality education, free quality healthcare and better economy. The average pay is much higher than Nigeria and above all, you can finally put that troublesome green passport to rest lol.
You and your children benefit from a beautiful and diverse country. For me, Brazil is more beautiful than Europe. São Paulo for example has more sky scrapers than the whole of Europe combined. The Brazilian population is extremely friendly and diverse unlike Europe where you and your children will be treated like 3rd class humans. Brazilians are a combination of different looks and cultures. Japanese, Africans, Europeans, Latinos etc etc are all Brazilians. No wonder the current North Korean Leaders travels on a Brazilian Passport because it is one of those countries where citizenship is not defined by race or looks. Soo you have the beautiful cities and friendly people, a combination you don’t find anywhere else and that is the kind of environment i want my children to grow into.
That said, Brazil is not perfect. The pay is not as good as the US or Western Europe. However in US or Europe your spend all your earnings on paying bills which are provided in Brazil for free so at the end I personally think it’s about the same.
There is also high crime rate in Brazil but also in the US. The only good thing about Brazil is that 98% of the crimes and death related crimes are committed in the Favelas. So if you avoid those locations, you should be fine. Cities like Florianópolis, Brasilia, Blumenau are considered super safe.
The good thing is that if you enter Brazil and find put later that you don’t like it then get your Brazilian passport yourself after one year of living there as parents of a Brazilian baby and find a better opportunity somewhere else with that passport that provides you with visa free access to 171 countries. A Brazilian passport can be useless in the hands of the wrong person who may just use it for holidays or can be a blessing in the hands of someone who seeks the thousands of opportunities that allows Brazilians to legally immigrate and work in other countries especially.
Q:2 yes that amount should be enough for the process

Sorry if I always refers to the US and Europe. Those are the only 2 places i have lived for most of my life. I know their systems like the back of my hands. You make money in those countries and all goes on bills. You and your children are treated like 3rd class. Especially in Europe. Families are emotionally suffering but they will never tell you.
I know friends whose children were born in the US citizenship yet the parents are living in the country illegally and are being deported and separated from their children. Is that one too a country?
Experience how you are treated with your children in Brazil and you will realize that emotional peace is better than making money.
Brazil has won our hearts. If you only are looking for money, then maybe Brazil is not for you but if you are looking for a decent family life with full of happiness then come to Brazil.

Pls can you help those that want to come for study so as to get resident permit?
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by afelouz(m): 4:52pm On Sep 11|
A quick update.
I just submitted my brazilian visa application at the lagos embassy and here is my observations.
They are aware that Nigerians use that visa for child birth and its true that they can call you for interview and ask for pregnancy test. They will ask if you are pregnant despite seeing you not pregnant physically then minute somethings on the form which I didn’t see clearly.
I notice that the average women who submitted were lowkey pregnant and yet nobody is posting anything here.
Lastly, I think they know about this thread.
I cant even write somethings here.
I don’t know why Nigerian wont just go and use private hospital and atleast pay the bills.
If I receive any mail, I will update
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 5:09pm On Sep 11|
Hey timmb. Thanks. Sorry I don’t know about studies. Thanks
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 5:14pm On Sep 11|
Hey afelouz. Thanks for the information. It is really sad that people are reading this thread and applying but not giving any updates.
Thanks for the update. Cheers
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Wilej: 7:56am On Sep 12|
Thank you Adjo10 for all the useful information you've shared. I have a few questions:
1. How long did it take for you to get your passport after 1yr residency? I'm trying to get an idea of how long the paperwork takes.
2. Are there professional immigration experts in Brazil that can help speed up the process?
3. If one is coming to Brazil for 3 or 4 months, how much do you think they'll need to survive in a city like sao Paulo (accommodation and hospital bills not included)
4. Asides from this forum, where can one find Nigerians living legitimately in Brazil to with?
5. If you're well educated, know basic Portuguese and have permanent residency, how easy or difficult will it be to get a good job as a black African?
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by suxes2005(m): 8:23am On Sep 12|
Thanks for this update.
Since the embassy is reading this and they know that Nigerians are
trying to give birth in Brazil.
They should simply introduce Health Tourism or Birth Visa, so we can
apply for such easily - and we will not have to try get a tourist visa for
child birth purpose only.
And then, they can make something like a law stating we MUST use a
private hospital and all BILLS must be paid before the child can get the
passport or before the parents can get their PR.
I am sure the embassy will work something good out, soon.
