Updated information from June 17, 2024

Appointments and documents submission

Due to limited daily slots, appointments are allocated to ensure timely processing. If unable to book presently, new slots are released daily for Guangzhou at 9:00 am Beijing standard time.

The Visa Application Center will NOT reallocate to other applicants, under any circumstances, previously booked appointments that are not used for any reason (such as a “no show” or erroneous or incomplete documentation).

As a rule, applicants should submit their application in person. Applications can only be accepted from third parties under the conditions listed below:

Persons applying for Study/Conference/Seminar, Work or Family Reunion visa in Guangzhou can submit the documents without appointment.

Please note that if you’re applying for a short-term Study/Conference/Seminar, you can also apply without appointment. Make sure you have an original letter from your educational institution in English to prove, at the visa center, the purpose of your journey. The institution you belong to in China shall be a widely recognized institution. Please attach any documents that can prove this condition.

VITEM applicants are requested to inform the Ofício number (a document sent to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs authorizing applicants' visa; you can find the Ofício number on your online vitem process in Brazil) to the Brazil when submitting the applications in the Brazil Visa Application Center in Guangzhou.

For other specific visas, please consult with visa.cantao@itamaraty.gov.br

Agent/company system

1. the system for registered agency has already been fully implemented and the following travel agencies/operators have been authorized to directly make appointments on that system and deliver the cases directly to BLS, acting on behalf of applicants:

2. the consulate encourages all applicants to apply by themselves. Appointments slots are still being released on regular basis on BLS website. Registered agencies should be sought only when the applicant is not available to deliver documents in person or is purchasing a tour package from those companies.

3. those companies are not allowed to offer any type of express visa or booking appointments in exchange for fees, as according to Brazilian Law, there is no “VIP” or “express” visa. They’re solely allowed to charge for their travel consultancy services. All “fapiao” will be checked.

4. the consulate finally reminds that this system is currently available only for the Consulate General of Brazil in Guangzhou and it is solely an instrument to attempt to offer possibilities for the applicants to make appointments and deliver their documents more smoothly. The agencies already registered are acting upon strict control and are subject to being suspended at any time for breaking any rules.

5. the consulate, once more, strongly discourage applicants from seeking any agencies/operators and “huangniu” who offer “express appointment” or “express visa”, as such services do not exist and operators who sell them for profit have been negatively impacting our visa services.

6. the guide about how to apply to act a registered company/agent in Guangzhou is available here. Please read it carefully before applying.
