Visa question

In preparation for a future trip to Rio I have investigated the process of applying for a Visa for American citizens.

One of the requirements is to provide a RT airline ticket showing travel to and from Brazil.

I plan to fly to Argentina first, then cross the Brazilian border at Iguassau Falls by foot then fly to Rio and then back to NY. Since my Rt ticket does not show entry into Brazil only exit, how do I proceed?

I'm sure others have done this,

Really a good question.

I think it would be interesting to have your hotel at Foz do Iguacu city (brazilian side) already booked and payed/confirmed in order to show the authorities when apply at brazilian consulate.

I´d post it at the Foz do Iguacu forum too.

Show your ticket into Argentina. Look up and print out the bus schedule you will be using to Iguazu Falls, the above advice on the hotel reservation is also good. But I know other folks have done this, you might have to check in at the Brazilian consulate in Argentina, call the consulate and ask for advice (in English) before proceeding with your paperwork.
