Brazil recently rolled out a new electronic visa program for
US citizens. It was originally suppose to launch January
15th, but it was delayed until January 25th. I submitted my
application, but two days later, I was told the photos were
not accepted. I instantly resubmitted new photos, but
received no response. I tried emailing and calling vfs global
(the company who handles the e visas) for a week before I got
a response, they finally reviewed the photos and submitted
the application to the ministry yesterday. The website says
the ministry’s review may take up to 3 business days. I’ve
been trying to get a hold of the consulate in D.C. but they
only accept emails, and they’ve not answered my emails in
weeks. I’m really at a loss of what to do. My flight for
Brazil leaves later today. I would reschedule it, but I don’t
know if or when the visa will be approved. Any ideas or
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
