This is the best news out of Brazil for Canadians in a long time --- FREE VISAS!!!
Special Temporary Visas for FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 issued to Canadians Spectators,
It is absolutely mandatory that you present your FIFA ticket in order to qualify for the free visa. The Brazilians had to make the Spectator visa free, but will still impose a $25 embassy charge. So free means $25 plus processing.
Tickets for FIFA will be delivered starting on 1 April, 2014. Do not apply until you have your ticket or ticket confirmation/ticket certificate. Applying before ticket delivery will change your application to TOURIST visa and the regular fees will apply.
