The new version of the Consular Portal is now available at www.portalconsular.itamaraty.gov.br. It provides useful information to Brazilians who intend to travel to other countries or to those living abroad.
The new Consular Portal displays consular alerts; frequently asked questions; information on the legalization of documents, visas and passports; description of jurisdiction of consular sections; and guidelines on how to proceed in case of an emergency abroad. The "Destination" section, which now contains detailed information on measures and precautions to be taken before traveling abroad, was also redesigned.
The Consular Portal is constantly being updated with information received by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and by Brazilian consular sections.
The reformulation of the Consular Portal aims to meet the growing demand for consular services provided by the Ministry of Foreign. Around 8 million Brazilians travel abroad annually. The number of Brazilian citizens living abroad is estimated at 3 million.
