World Cup 2014 Visa Types and Requirements
We’ve reported earlier on how spectators can acquire visas to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup
(June 12–July 1), but here’s a guide of all the types of World Cup Brazil visas for those attending this exciting event. These people include volunteers, journalists and other members of the media, members of FIFA, and, of course, the viewers.
Per the Brazilian embassy, these are the following types of World Cup Brazil visas:
1) Temporary Special Courtesy Visa: for accredited personnel and volunteers of the FIFA World Cup 2014. Maximum validity of the Visa is December 31, 2014.
2) Temporary Special Tourist Visa: for spectators with purchased tickets to attend the FIFA World Cup 2014. Maximum validity is 90 days. This visa is non-extendable. You must enter Brazil by July 13, 2014. This may be extended to dependents without purchased tickets.
3) Temporary Special Business Visa: for members of the press covering the FIFA World Cup 2014. Maximum validity is 90 days. This visa is non-extendable. You must enter Brazil by July 13, 2014. This may be extended to dependents without purchased tickets.
4) Temporary Special (VITEM III): for athletes and artists participating in the FIFA World Cup 2014. This requires a previously approved work permit on behalf of the applicant.
5) Temporary Special (VITEM V): for professionals working for the organization of the FIFA World Cup 2014. This requires a previously approved work permit on behalf of the applicant. This may be extended to dependents for stays over 6 months.
