Currency
Brazil's currency is the Real (R$), which has a fluctuating exchange rate. Currency can be exchanged at banks, travel agencies and authorized hotels. Both traveler's checks and other currencies can be easily exchanged at such places. International credit cards are accepted at most hotels, restaurants, stores, travel agencies, car rentals and other companies providing services to tourists.

Visa

A visa must be requested by all foreigners planning to stay longer in Brazil or who were born in countries that do not have an agreement with the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
