Be aware that once you are under a student visa in Brazil, you must attend classes regularly.
Stay in Brazil for over 3 months with a Student Visa
A tourist visa allows you to travel around Brazil for 90 days. If you are planning on staying longer, it is possible to extend your tourist visa for Brazil for another 90 days. However, if your plans include living in Brazil for over 6 months, you might want to consider other options.
Ever dreamt of taking a gap year, traveling around Brazil, and exploring every beautiful corner of the country? How about doing that while on a Student Visa? You will be able to take a few weeks off between classes to explore the Brazilian culture as well.
At Caminhos, we offer 6-month and 1-year Student Visa packages. By doing so, you do not need to worry about the 90-days limit to leave Brazil. It is also possible to extend your Student Visa for longer if you need it.
Do not worry about having to extend your visa
While most countries qualify for a Brazilian tourist visa extension, some do not. If you are from countries such as Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, and others, you can not extend your visa for additional 90 days. You can check this document to know if your country qualifies for an extension. If you find an asterisk along with the caption, it means your country does not qualify for an extension.
That is why a student visa from Brazil might be ideal for you. You can study in Brazil while exploring the country for longer without worrying about a tight schedule.
Explore the country while learning Portuguese
In Brazil, very few people speak another language other than Portuguese. You will maximize your experience in the country if you study Portuguese to communicate with the locals.
Getting a student visa with Caminhos Language Centre allows you to take Portuguese classes and have all the documents sent to you so you can apply for your visa.
Learning Portuguese at Caminhos not only gives you the base of vocabulary and grammar, but also teaches you about the Brazilian culture, traditions and customs, and inside tips on Brazil and Rio de Janeiro.

From getting the documents to scheduling your appointment at the consulate/embassy in your country, to preparing your trip and booking your classes, a language school can guide you every step of the way.
