Info for Visa in New York


Just got back from the consulate in NYC. Hope this info helps those who are planning a trip:

Plan to get there at 8.45am, since the security will let you up only around 8.55am.

Plan to wait in line at least for 45mins to 1 hour. Getting to the consulate later means that wait time could quickly become as long as 2 hrs!! And the consulate stops processing at noon and will ask you to come another day even if you got there before noon.

Once you get to the window the process is fairly quick. Have to pick up my visa tomorrow between 2 & 4pm.

Let me know if there are any other questions.

Good information there sunshine! Obrigado.

I've got a year left on my 'Paradise Pass', so it's good to know the process is still quick and easy...

Not sure when you're going to Brazil, but enjoy your trip!
