Visas – Tourism, Au Pair, Student, Work and Others

Visa for Brazilian tourists

Brazilians do not need a visa to enter as a tourist in countries that are part of the European Union and Luxembourg is part of this list. You can travel as a tourist in the countries that are part of the Schengen Agreement for a maximum of 03 months.

Visas - for citizens of countries that are not part of the Schengem Agreement: Tourist and / or Long-term

In Brazil, no consular unit nor the Embassy does a visa process for any category, be it tourist, or long term for work, aupair, study and so on.

Through an agreement between the countries of Luxembourg and Belgium in places where this service is not available in the Luxembourg offices installed in the country, the Belgium General Consulate assumes this consular service.

Here in Brazil visa applications are forwarded through the Belgium General Consulate in São Paulo and according to the website, information and clarification of doubts are made by email: saopaulo@diplobel.fed.be /site: https://brazil.diplomatie.belgium.be/pt-br/venha-para-belgica/visto-para-belgica
