The vast majority of international students who study a degree in Brazil will need to get a study visa.
Although the criteria differs from country to country, almost everyone will have to pass the following:
• Original passport valid for six months after the end of the course
• Copy of a letter of acceptance from an approved Brazilian institution
• Proof of finances for the duration of the stay
