World Meeting on Sexual Medicine - Plan Ahead to Get Your Visa for Brazil
ISSM Board of Directors - Call for Nominations
The 16th World Meeting on Sexual Medicine may be several months from now, but attendees are advised to plan ahead and get their visas early, if necessary.
Holders of passports from European and South American countries do not need visas to enter Brazil. However, attendees holding passports from other countries, including the United States, do need an entry visa.
We recommend that these attendees make their visa arrangements as soon as possible, as the process can take time.
Passports must be valid for at least six months after the planned date of arrival in Brazil.
The World Meeting on Sexual Medicine will be held October 8-12, 2014 in São Paulo. Please click here for complete information.
