Brazil Customs Declaration Form Information

One of Brazil’s entry requirements for travelers is to complete an Electronic Traveler’s Declaration of Goods (e-DBV).

You can do the Brazil e-DBV online before your journey, for your own convenience.

All passengers must have a completed Brazil customs declaration form when they arrive in the country. It must be shown at border control.

Whatever your purpose of travel — tourism, business, or even returning home to Brazil — you will need the e-DBV.

Each Brazil customs declaration has a single use — it can only be used for that trip. Each journey you make to Brazil will require you to complete a new e-DBV.

The e-DBV is required when arriving in Brazil by air, land, and sea. It is also used by passengers transiting through the country.

This online customs form was introduced to replace the old paper declaration.

It is much simpler and quicker to complete using a computer or device. You can easily get your e-DBV from your phone.
