Always get 90 stamp when re-entering BrazilHi All
I am currently thinking about a trip to Brazil having already been there on a trip before.
When I was last there I remember I was given a standard 90 day tourist stamp when I entered for the first time. I left to visit other South American countries a couple of times on separate trips and after visiting each country I re-entered Brazil and each time I re-entered I was given a 90 day stamp. Obviously I never questioned this but it seemed a little strange as I am aware of the '180 days in every 365' rule for foreigners. I think by the 3rd or 4th time I re-entered Brazil I must have already spent a combined total of about 60 days there so shouldn't I have been given less than 90 days when I cam in for the fourth time? Surely it should have been a stamp for eg 28 days or something? This also happened in Argentina - each time I left to visit another country I was always given 90 days when coming back into Argentina regardless of any rules about how long a foreigner (I am a British Citizen) can stay there in each calendar year.
I ask this as the trip I am planning may be for about a year and would probably involve several entries in into Brazil. Was the above only happening due to immigration officers not doing their job properly!?
Thanks for any help.

2O.K thank you. If however I had spent more than 90 days should the immigration then give me less days the next time I enter? If the immigration were to make a mistake and just allocate me another 90 day stamp - ven if I was not supposed to have it would this mean I could have that full 90 days or would it be down to me to make sure I was still below the 180 day in a calendar year limit?
How do they keep track of this sort of thing if you have a passport full of stamps!
