Information for Foreign Students in Brazil

Visa Application

You will find the printable form on the website of the Brazil's General Consulate in France. The process should be carried out at the consulate and the issuance of the visa shall generally not exceed one week. The original letter of acceptance from your host university is essential, therefore, do not lose it. Be sure to fill out the form carefully.

Administratives Requirements

After your arrival in Brazil, you have thirty days to get to the office of the Federal Police. You must register at the police station and obtain a protocol (residence permit) which must be renewed every six months. Half a day should be necessary for the process. You will have to fill out a form, pay the sum of 107 reais (around 40 euros), and create a fingerprint report.

Housing

In general, accommodation fees are high in the main Brazilian cities. You should count on a minimum rent of 600 reais (about 240 euros). Here are some websites that can be a good help: www.zap.com.br and http://www.hostel.org.br/pg.php gathers announcements of several newspapers and offers ads with photos. If you add the bills, food, transportation and some travels, your budget should range from 1,500 to 2,000 reais (between 600 and 800 euros, including the accommodation fees).

Opening a bank account

Opening a bank account in Brazil has two major advantages. First, you do not constantly have to pay fees to your traditional bank; secondly, being in possession of a National Credit Card will guarantee access to electronic payment by Internet or by phone normally prohibited to foreign cards (bill payment, booking air tickets). In Brazil, opening a bank account can only be made after obtaining the CPF (the Cadastro de Pessoa Fisica), released by the Ministry of Economy of Brazil (Ministerio da Fazenda).

Transportation

The International Driving Permit is accepted.The bus is very convenient for small distances; the train barely exists; the car is a practical means for transportation but beware of driving habits in Brazil.
