This thread seems a bit dull, so let me share my application submissiom experiences.
Who knows, it may be of importance to prospective applicants.

At the embassy, we were about 8 when I got there.
I saw a guy sent back with all his documents. I can't tell what his offence was, but I overheard someone say "why e no upload them"?

Then another was called in.
He walked in without any document but came out with a parcel of documents.
I don't know if it was his visa he came to pick or something.

Then another and another.

To get firsthand aproko and have a good view of where the guys who receive applications sat, I walked to the Mopol and asked if I could open and lick my TomTom because I had a cold, he looked at me like didn't you see the instruction at the gate that foods are not allowed in here?
I kukuma respected myself and sat in the settee facing the application area.

Mission accomplished but it was of no much use as I could only hear their voices and not see so much.

Then it got to my turn,
I went in.
Met the guy who receives applications who asked in an obviously fake Portuguese accent if I had uploaded all my documents. I answered in the affirmative.
He then asked for my package.
I handed them over.
NOTE: he gave a verrrrrrrrrrry detailed glance at my super flat tummy before he offered me a seat.

(I didn't see him minute anything on my file) but I saw the other guy writing something on the application of the lady who had just left before I came in.
So maybe they write after you have left now?

He used like a barcode scanner to scan my application and it populated my details, he scanned through and that was about it.
He returned my employment letter, promotion letter and my birth certificate.
He then told me the process could take as long as 21 working days and I will be contacted via email.

Now here is the enlightening part.

While I was there.
The other guy called in a couple. Husband was principal applicant but dude was asking why the wife did not have her payslips and all too.
He even asked for a letter from their kids school
He made a fuss about this and the madam's letter

I'm not a visa officer sha, but those couples looked like the tourist type..the husband wasn't having any of that and explained to the guy that the embassy website did not indicate those requirements and that he had visited several countries with his family and not once have they been asked of this by anyone and had always gotten his visa.
He said he stuck to the requirements on the site and got all.
He also said he is the primary applicant..that he explained that in the cover letter.
The guy seemed to mellow down after learning that the man wasn't a rookie in taking his family around for a good time.

Like I read here, the naija guys there are soooooooooo unwelcoming, they make everything appear difficult and are outrightly repugnant.
BUT it does help to point out some facts to them when they get overzealous.

Please don't go like a coward.
Or go like someone who is being helped.
Go like someone who has no care in the world but to make themselves happy.
It works wonders.


NB. I travelled alone
Hubby could not come with me due to work engagement.
The guy didn't even ask of him.
The guy who attended to me is a beardganger.
He seems like the better of the two devils, try to get him to attend to you if you can.

If I remember anything, I'd share.

Nice one Namae. Every visa interview i have ever attended (for various countries); (thank God i don’t have to attend any of them anymore), I have come to the sad realisation that the rudest people are our fellow Africans at the gate or receiving applications in this case.

This is super ironic because, their attitude is the direct opposite of how Brazilians behave in general. Brazilians are one of nicest people on the planet and these guys at the gate have actually never been to Brazil before trust me.

Nice story. Cheers

Hello iwanvisityankee. The list is this long because different Brazilian consulates ask for different documents depending on the conditions of the country they are located and the type of visa being applied for.

Please upload those documents stated by the Brazilian consulate in the country where you are applying from. Cheers

My second question, Which option do I need to select? UNTIL or FOR. I guess both are correct, I plan to stay for 12 days, so when I put my arrival date and thick UNTIL, it shows me option to input my departure date and when I select FOR, it brings option to put the number of days I wish to stay. In this case which option do you suggest I should select. Thanks

Hi Adjo10 and all the others contributors to this group, thank you for all the information and support.

Found this group through searches and read up the pages throughout the night. Pardon me if I am about to ask questions already responded to.

From my understanding, several people here have been issued 3 months visa instead of 1 year visa. Henceforth one should be pregnant before applying? Getting pregnant after visa issue means one spending minimum of 6-9months over there which can’t due to work.

Can you get the tourist visa first, use it for that return and renew for birthing? This is expensive no doubt and has anyone done that before and how did renewal go?

How many people have gotten the 1 year visa though and what are the chances of getting it.

Thank you in advance to your kind response.

I think what they mean is get the visa but you can still stay in Nigeria, the visa takes like 1 year to expire if you don't use.. Then you can now go to the country when heavy, it starts reading as soo. As you get there... Abi my bosses no be so??

The required documents are on the Lagos website.
But for me I uploaded,
Passport
Statement of Purpose
Bank account reference letter
Marriage certificate
Employment letter
Pay slips
International passport
Hotel reservation
Flight tickets
Signature

That was it for me.

I hope this helps.

You are very correct Horlaarsco.
Kingsmum the 3 month visa has multiple entries and can be extended by another 3 months upon expiry in Brazil.
After which you now pay fines for visa overstaying when you've birthed and are getting the Permanent Residence.


May God give us his favour, because only him can do it.

That's not entirely true.

Nigerians still need visa on arrival to enter that small Island...and believe it getting through is more tough than trying to get their visa from their embassy of which they don't have.

Now also for such a child to claim citizenship by just soil in Saints Kitts and Nevis is just not that straight forward like Canada, US or Brazil.

The Child that is born in Saints Kitts and Nevis will have to prove that the parents of that child are unknown or Stateless before such a child can be granted Saints Kitts and Nevis citizenship by just soil.

Dear Beautyaddy,

I need your help confirming the above i.e. if you or any one you know have personally experienced this. I am in a limbo regarding where to birth as it seems late for Brazil processing and was considering st kitts until now.

The hassle involved and the chance of not getting into the country or getting citizenship despite the claims/facts online is scaring me.

Thank you.

Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Samuelsoma: 6:37am On Feb 04
You can go for Peru, Panama, Chile or Argentina....actually Argentina gives almost the same benefits as Brazil, the parents are also able to secure a PR after their child is born. Infact, almost all the countries in North and South America gives your child citizenship by birth, so just try and check out for the ones you like and get yourself familiar with the procedures in any country you are interested in. Cheers
