Additional Resources for U.S. Citizens

The U.S. Department of State’s Brazil Page is your one-stop shop for all the information you need to stay safe and have a great time in Brazil. On this page, you’ll find information on a variety of topics related to travel to Brazil, including visa requirements, local laws, health risks, safety and security, and transportation. We update the Brazil Page regularly, so you can be sure you’re getting the latest information.

Aiming to assist U.S. citizens in Brazil, the U.S. Embassy in Brasilia and the Consulates in Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo compiled lists of lawyers, medical doctors, hospitals and clinics, and funeral homes in Brazil.

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

These lists are not meant to be complete, as there are many competent professionals in the community. Many of these Brazilian professionals speak English. Physicians are included after a review of their educational certification and local licensure. Inclusion on this list does not indicate exceptional competence but rather a lack of negative commentary. It does not represent either a guarantee of competence or endorsement by the Department of State.
