Humanitarian Visa for Afghan Citizens

Through intermenstrual decree number 24, of September 3, 2021, Brazil established the granting of a temporary visa and residence permit for the purpose of humanitarian reception for Afghan nationals, stateless persons and people affected by a situation of serious or imminent institutional instability, serious violation of human rights or international humanitarian law in Afghanistan.

At least for the time being, this visa can be issued by the Brazilian Embassies in Tehran, Abu Dhabi, Ankara, Doha, Islamabad and Moscow.

It should be noted that the visa is aimed at those who are under real threat due to recent political events in Afghanistan.

Interested in applying for a visa in Tehran should go to the Embassy (with prior appointment) with the following documents:

I – valid travel document;

II – completed visa application form; (available here)

III – proof of booking a ticket to Brazil; and

IV – certificate of criminal record issued by Afghanistan or, in the impossibility of obtaining it, declaration, under the penalties of the law, of absence of criminal record in any country (available here).

All required documents must be submitted digitally using the online form. After completing the online form completely, the candidate must print the receipt from the electronic system, sign it and paste his 3×4 photo.



No processing fee will be charged for the humanitarian visa.

To obtain this visa, the citizen must, at the time of the interview at the Brazilian Embassy, ​​present a reservation for an air ticket to Brazil.

It should be noted that all responsibility for support in Brazil will be the responsibility of the applicant.

It is still desirable, but not essential, that the citizen already has contact with a resident in Brazilian territory who can receive and welcome him upon his arrival.

The Brazilian embassy in Tehran can only do 50 interviews per day for the humanitarian visa. Applicants must have an appointment in advance before coming to the embassy.

To schedule an appointment, the candidate must send an email to [email protected] with the subject APPOINTMENT and his full name.

Do not attach documents to this email. An appointment request will not be considered.
