Trip abroad


Asylum Seeker - Travel Communication

If you are an asylum seeker and have to travel abroad, you must inform CONARE about your travel plans by following the step-by-step instructions below. Within a year, you will only be able to stay outside the country for up to 90 days. If the 90-day limit is exceeded, the asylum claim will be filed. In addition, before returning to Brazil, the applicant must apply for a new Brazilian visa.

If your request has been filed, check here how to unarchive it.

Recognized Refugee - Travel Authorization

In most cases, the recognized refugee can travel abroad without an official authorization from CONARE, provided he carries the emergency passport (yellow passport) issued by the Federal Police.

There are, however, three cases, three cases in which you must apply for this authorization:

  • When you travel to your home country;
  • When you intend to travel, to any destination, lasting more than 12 (twelve) months;
  • In case the refugee uses the passport of his country of nationality.

In the above cases, express authorization from CONARE is required. The request must be made at least 60 days before the scheduled travel date. In the event of an emergency, you should contact CONARE and explain the special circumstances of your situation.
