How to Renew a Brazilian Passport

Save

For the U.S. citizen traveling to Brazil a U.S. passport is required for short-term stays and a visa for longer-term visits. A Brazilian citizen traveling either abroad or back to Brazil will need a current Brazilian passport. Renewing yours doesn't have to be hard, and can be as easy as visiting or contacting the Brazilian Consular office nearest you.

Things You'll Need

  • Passport application forms
  • 3 identical passport photos
  • Proof of Brazilian citizenship
  • Certificate of compliance to military service duties, for men
  • Passport renewal fee
  • Go to the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate nearest you. You can find a list of Brazilian Consulates on the website for the Brazilian Consulate in Washington, D.C.

  • Complete two copies of the passport application form. This form is available online or from the Brazilian Consulate if there's one in your city.

  • Bring three identical 2-by-3 inch passport photos. These photos can be in color or black and white and must be taken against a light colored background. They also must show the entire face in a front facing pose and have been taken in the past three months.

  • Show proof of Brazilian citizenship. Include your previous passport, which will be returned after being canceled. Other acceptable documents are a Brazilian ID, birth certificate, marriage certificate or a military service/discharge certificate for men.

  • Provide an original certifying document or a copy notarized by a Brazilian Consular office whenever there has been a change of name or civil status.

  • Present a certificate of compliance to the military service duties for men ages 18 to 45. Military registration certificates, reservist cards and discharge certificates are all acceptable proof of compliance.

  • Pay the applicable passport renewal fee. Different consular offices accept varying methods of payment. Call ahead to make sure your payment can be accepted.
