The Consulate General of Brazil responsible for Canadians living in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan has announced a further reduction in services.
Here is the official annoucement:
"Temporary reduction in the rate of visa issuance.
The Consulate General of Brazil informs that due to a technical problem in issuing documents, the rhythm of issuance of visas will be temporarily reduced. If your trip is not urgent and you do not wish to surrender your passport to the Consulate for the time that is required for its processing, we suggest submitting your request later on. We hope to resume normal rhythm as soon as possible.
The Consulate General of Brazil appreciates your understanding."
We are now back to where we were a year ago with visa processing taking over one month. Apply very early if you need a visa.
