Planning Your Travel

Visas

Attendees traveling to the conference from outside Brazil may be required to obtain a visa. This includes travelers from North America. Visa requirements for Brazil are based on the principle of reciprocity—if Brazilian nationals are required to obtain a visa to visit your country, then you are likely required to obtain a visa for travel to Brazil. All conference attendees are advised to consult their local Brazilian Embassy or Consulate for country-specific entry requirements that may apply to them. See: www.itamaraty.gov.br/en/brazilian-missions-abroad.

Please click here for more information. We highly encourage you to begin making travel plans as early as possible to allow sufficient time for the visa application process.

Hotel Accommodations

Foz do Iguassu offers a huge number of lodging options for all budgets, from first class resorts to hostels and flats. Blumar is the official travel agency of the event and is available for quotations and reservations in several hotels in the city. Please click here for details about available hotel options.

Air Travel

Blumar is the official travel agency of the event and has negotiated excellent rates on domestic flights inside Brazil for all participants, with DISCOUNTS UP TO 15%. Blumar can also assist you in purchasing international airfare, although rates may be lower through popular travel sites. Please click here to view flight options.

If you book your own travel, keep in mind that it can sometimes be cheaper, depending on your point of origin, to purchase airfare to one of the major cities in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasilia) and buy a separate ticket to Foz do Iguaçu on one of the domestic carriers. If you do this, we recommend allowing several hours between flights in case of any delays, and also ensuring that both your international flight and your domestic flight are from the same airport (Guarulhos/airport code GRU) if you are flying through Sao Paulo).

People who book separate international and domestic flight tickets should be aware of differences in bagagge alowances between both. Flying internationally you are able to bring as much as 2 x 32 kg (from North America) , and only 1 x 23 kg for domestic flights. For domestic flights in Brazil companies have recently been allowed to charge for checked bagagge, either.
