Brazilian Visa for Australians in London?Hi All,
Have any Australians tried to obtain tourist visa to visit Brazil in London?. I will be away for a while and any visa I get in Australia will have expired by the time I get to Brazil.
I specifically would like to know how long it takes to issue a tourist visa to an Australian at the London Embassy /Consulate - assuming all paperwork is OK. In Australia at the Brazilian Embassy in Canberra it is currently taking about a month and I am hoping that it will be faster than that in London.
Any first hand experience from other Aussies would really help me plan my travels.

3The info you need is available by googling. My recollection of earlier similar questions is that you must apply at the Brazilian consulate in your own country. Brits dont need a visa for Brasil so there would be no reason to expect the consulate in UK to process non-UK citizens visas.
As far as a visa obtained in Australia is concerned, I do recollect that there is a time limit between visa issue and first entry to Brasil and that may be the expiry you mention. Ask at the Consulate in Oz if they can put a delayed entry date on the visa.

4From the Brazilian Embassy in Canberra website, re: tourist visas:
" For Australians the visa is valid for one year starting by the issue date." so I stand corrected, having confused what the OP said with the former requirement to use a new visa within 90 days of issue.
And the site further says "Australians are allowed to stay for 90 days in Brazil, counted from the first day of arrival. Extension for a further 90 days may be requested to the Brazilian Federal Police in Brazil before the Visa expires and will be granted at their discretion. Visitors can remain in Brazil for up to a maximum of 180 days in any twelve (12) month period counted from the day they first entered the country."
