To ease the way for tourism related to the summer Olympics, the Brazilian government has waived the usual tourist visa requirement for citizens of Australia, Canada, Japan, and the US who wish to visit Brazil. If you go to Brazil for tourism purposes between June 1st and September 18th, you can enter without a visa! And you can stay between 2 weeks and 90 days.

During your stay in Brazil, you will have the opportunity to live with a local host family and experience Brazilian culture firsthand. API has three great locations for short-term, part-time volunteering in Brazil, and all are open to anyone over the age of 21. Placements are limited – please contact us with questions at any time!
