About the Brazilian Consulate in Miami

Miami, Florida, often referred to as the gateway between the United States and Latin America, is a cultural melting pot. Stroll down picturesque Ocean Blvd. in Miami, and you will hear as much Spanish and Portuguese being spoken as you will English. Considering the large South American component of visitors and expats who are present in Miami, it is no wonder that many South American countries decide to maintain a visible presence and a full-time staff in this bustling South Florida city.

Brazil is one such country. More than a decade ago, Brazil opened a consulate in Miami to assist its citizens secure visas and other documents, and to help citizens of other companies who wish to travel to Brazil. The Brazilian Consulate is a treasured resource in Miami. The Brazilian Consulate in Miami is located at 80 SW 8th Street, Miami, Florida 33130. See all services offered.
