For the benefit of everyone dropping by the Brazil branch for the first time, please read this FAQ first. And I hope there can be some sort of way to moderate the thread to keep it updated and clean. I know there are some AWESOME regular contributors here who enjoy giving advice; I feel this thread can really help to condense the information available.

I'll go first, with some general thoughts from the South America FAQ. Many thank to Apollo for starting that thread and for a great idea…

Just learn from my friend after returning from Bolivia, had not received a stamp of entry on her passport. As result she was not allowed to leave the country unless she gets a certified cheque at the bank for $50.00 US.. She was not told
