When we think of traveling abroad, the first step is to regularize all the necessary documents.
First, we have to keep the passport valid. The passport is not required for several countries in South America. However, it is the default document for the majority of the destinations in the world.
For those who do not have a passport, never leave to do it last time, since there may be some unforeseen problems in its issuance. For those who already have, just be aware of the expiration date. Remembering, that some countries require that the passport has at least six months of validity.
With the passport rectified, it is time for the visa: a document that gives permission for the entry to the country, during a certain period of time, for certain purposes.
Some countries require a visa for brazilians, others do not. In the case of Canada, the visa is still required. On flights with connections in the United States the us visa is mandatory, regardless of the final destination.
The body that makes the issuance of visas for Canada is the Consulate General of Canada. For more information: www.brazil.gc.ca.
International health insurance is also critical. We can’t imagine what can happen on a trip. Therefore, if prevention is very important. Generally, these insurance are very affordable.
