About the Application


I clicked on the link for the Brazil visa application but my browser is saying it's unsafe. How do I proceed?
If using the Chrome browser, you will want to click, "Advanced" on the bottom left and then click "Proceed to formullario-mre.serpro.gov.br (unsafe)" to access the online application. Unfortunately, this form his hosted by the Brazilian government and there is no way around this.
