    After an overnight stay or an extremely long layover God knows where. And via Miami’s filthy airport. It is not worth the cost in food purchases and lack of rest and date restrictions. Who are they kidding!??? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ™ πŸ™

    Expensive costs
    There are some expensive costs associated with getting into Brazil. For one the entry fee is outrageous. Getting accepted in can cause some real problems down the road. I know this is because the US does the same to Brazil visitors.

    “entry fee”???
    I’ve been to Brazil on 4 occasions in the past 5 years, and have never paid anything like an “entry fee” … there IS a fee for a visitor’s visa (normal and understandable), and a fee for filing for one’s Permanent Resident card once there in Brazil as well, but the fees were pretty fair, though the process is awkward and slow at best … the Brazilian government there works (or not) at it’s own pace — usually somewhere between turtle-slow and a dead stop!
