Children are subject to the same visa requirements that adults are subject to. Additionally, both parents must sign the visa application form, the child’s original birth certificate or a copy must be presented and a notarized travel authorization letter must be provided by the parents, even if they are travelling with the child.
Additionally, if the child is between three months and six years old, parents must provide a certificate of vaccination against polio. Brazil has several areas with dengue fever, malaria and yellow fever endemics, so it would be wise to discuss your child’s immunization plan with your paediatrician.
Bringing pets to Brazil is fairly straightforward and all Cats and Dogs can be brought into Brazil for any non-commercial purpose, but most other types of animals will require an import permit from the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply. Additionally, all imported animals will undergo a brief physical inspection and quarantined for an unspecified amount of time.
Cats and Dogs also require official health certificates from the local vet and other animals will require an International Health Certificate and an Animal Health Certificate signed by a vet.
