For Students:

Once your application has been processed by Unicamp, you should get in touch with the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate in your country in order to find out how to get a Student Visa to Brazil. Do not come on a Tourist Visa, you will not be able to register at Unicamp.

One of the documents required for a Student Visa is the Letter of acceptance from UNICAMP. If yours do not arrive in time for you to apply for a visa, you should not try to come on a tourist visa: A change of visa status after entering Brazil is not possible.

When you arrive at the airport, make sure that both your Passport and Entry Card are stamped there. You will need this in order to register with the Federal Police afterwards.

Once you arrive at Unicamp, you will be advised on how to register with the Federal Police, the taxes and fees you will have to pay, etc. If a foreigner fails to register, he/she will have to pay daily fine until the date of such registration. After 90 days, this fine is fixed at R$600.00 (six hundred reais) per person.

If you still have questions regarding the necessary visa to come to Unicamp – after contacting the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate and reviewing the information they’ve provided – please get in touch with Ms. Luciana Pacheco
