Here is a summary of the information you should know before flying off to the country.
1 € = about 3.20 reais.
Since 1994, and after numerous changes, the national currency is real reais to the plural. There are parts 1, 5, 25, 50 cents, and also pieces of 1 real. It seems fairly between them, so we have to be careful.
The credit cards are widely accepted. Visa, MasterCard, and American Express can be used in many hotels and restaurants, in big stations, and of course allow you to withdraw money. The other cards are accepted at banks (Itau, 24 hours, etc.) much less implanted outside big urban centers.
Traveler’s checks offer protection against theft, but they are not very practical to use. In case of loss or theft of your credit card, you should call the emergency number of Visa USA PVC at 141058 38 36, in Brazil at 000811933 5589.
Paradoxically, the most expensive cities are in the poorest regions. In the South, prices are certainly the lowest with a higher quality and a wider range of services.
For a stay of three months, will not need visa.
If you want to stay longer, you can extend your visa, but you must go with your passport to the headquarters of the federal police in the city where you are, fill one or two papers, and pay a small fee.
Eventually, photos of identity, proof of solvency, and your return ticket will be required.
Bring your notebook international health, ensuring that you are well vaccinated against yellow fever, which is mandatory for visiting certain regions of Brazil, and also to cross the border from certain neighbouring countries. An insurance to cover your medical expenses (reimbursement of the cost of medicines and consultation or hospitalization, medical repatriation, etc…) can be useful.
