Hello! I'm new here and this is my first post, so here goes.
I'm a USA citizen who will be sailing aboard a French boat this autumn from France
. I would like to disembark in Brazil
and spend a few weeks touring the country overland, and then fly back to the USA.
The problem is that, as far as I can tell, I need to provide flight tickets ahead of time to get the visa. As we don't yet know when we will arrive in Brazil, this is rather difficult. Even worse, they seem to want to see a flight ticket or cruise
line ticket IN to Brazil. Obviously, I don't have such a thing.
Is there a special visa for sailors arriving on private vessels? Does anyone have experience with sailing in to Brazil (as USA citizen)?
Thanks a lot for any help you can give me.
