1It's true - if you cross into Brazil on the ordinary bus service, they don't normally stamp you in, but you might be unlucky that day!

3Well, the processing fee through the consulate is $160.00 and the handling fee through an assistance agency to get the visa is another $50 plus an additional $25 for Fed Ex return. Additionally, you need to purchase passport photos to send in, all paperwork needs to be notarized and it needs ot be mailed in - so it is about $300 when it is all said and done! that being siad, it seems quite doable to get there for a few yours without a visa. Thanks for the info and the link.

5Thats expensive. I assume American? For Australian's its 49 AUD. Its not worth that kind of money.And there isn't a need to go through an agency either.
One could do it at Puerto Iguazu or in Buenos Aires if you wanted to be safe and have a visa. But in my experience, the Brazilian side isn't as good (though the last bit of boardwalk is great). It still is an integral part of it and I think it shouldn't be missed as it helps create a complete overview of the falls.
