How to get a Brazilian Passport

by manager

Are you a person who loves to travel? Maybe you want to travel farther than you have before -- so far that you leave the country. The number one question you might have is: how exactly do you obtain a Brazillian passport? Just follow these steps:

Gather all the required documents. This includes:

  • A previous valid passport
  • A single photo, recently taken, with your full face on a white or clear background
  • A printed copy of a RER
  • Fill out this form: RER
  • Proof of your Brazillian citizenship. You can use the following:
  • If single: an original Brazillian birth or naturalization certificate
  • If married: your Brazillian marriage certificate. If you married abroad but have not registered your marriage in Brazil or at the Consulate, click here to see instructions regarding marriage registration
  • If divorced: your Brazillian marriage certificate with the divorce annotation
  • For men ages eighteen to forty-five -- proof of military enlistment “Certidão de quitação eleitoral"
  • A document provided by the Supreme Electoral Court stating that you have no voting debts. You can get it here. Look for "quitação eleitoral". If you have debts, you will need to come to the Consulate to update your voter card. Please follow the instructions on this page.

You will need to pay a consular fee of 120USD. The Consulate-General of Brazil in Chicago only accepts payments in the form of Money Order, issued by the United States Postal Service (USPS). It costs $1.25 for up to $500, payable to “Consulate-General of Brazil in Chicago.” Personal checks, credit cards, or any other forms of payment are not accepted. The image below is a sample money order.

In case your passport gets lost, you can make a report to the police with this “Lost, Stolen, or Destroyed Travel Document” form: Formulário de Perda, Furto, Extravio ou Destruição de Documento de Viagem. According to Brazillian legislation, the Consulate General will cancel all lost/found passports.

The processing time is five working days after all required documentation is received, for all applications made in person. However, the processing time may increase without notice in times that are considered high season. Passport application hours are 9:00AM to 12:30PM, Monday through Friday.

Good luck and have fun travelling!
