COVID-19

Attendees will be responsible for checking their own country’s COVID-19 entry requirements to and from Brazil. At the time of writing (August 2022), all visitors to Brazil are required to have had two doses of a COVID-19 vaccination. Please follow your government’s guidance, and keep up to date with the Brazilian government’s requirements for entry. This should include checking which vaccination types are accepted.

Please also check the wider health and vaccination requirements for entering Brazil. Yellow fever is present in some parts of Brazil and although you do not need a certificate of vaccination to enter the country, you may need a certificate for onward travel, flight connections, or to return home.

Visa requirements

For some countries, a work or tourist visa will be required to attend the conference. We advise attendees to check their own country’s travel and immigration agreement with Brazil at their country’s Brazilian consulate. We recommend that attendees apply for a visa well in advance of the conference to ensure enough time to complete the application and submit all necessary documentation.

Where required, Bonsucro is able to provide an invitation letter to support a visa application. Please get in touch with communications@bonsucro.com to request an official letter. Please note, Bonsucro can only provide a letter after the full purchase of a ticket.
