I agree. Visas are a scam to make money for the country. I know that its not any easier or better for someone from Brazil to obtain a visa in the US.
I was just frustrated with the lack of communication, which I'm sure is the same all over the world.

17#17 I understand and I'm totally on your side, system screw us both regardless of the nationality. I have nothing against the individuals, but honestly if all countries will not follow suit and make it hard for you to get the visa there will be never a slight chance that reciprocity waiver agreements will be sign.
Look at my country, my stupid government is sending the troops to fight your war in Iraq, we are part of Schengen and still there is no visa waiver for me. I have my B2 but it costed me time and money and it was not guaranteed at all, I could just loose the fee and time and get nothing.

18I heard a rumor that Brazil and the US are working on an agreement that would eliminate the need for visas for citizens from either country. I doubt this is true, however.

20That's true, tonytk--though they say now not to look for it happening in 2013. Brazil and interested Americans are making a case for the amount of money that Brazilians tourists spend in the US and how much more it would be if more tourists were able to come.

22Anyone have any updates on the consulates? I am planning on leaving for Sao Paulo on Dec. 14th and need to get a new visa. I'm glad to hear that some people are getting their visas!
