The Society of Muscle Biology encourages all potential attendees to check their entry requirements with their international office and consulate. As of Saturday August 26th, 2023, the Brazil Ministry of Foreign Affairs officially announced delaying implementation of the new visa rules until January 10, 2024. This means that a visitor visa is not required for US, Canadian and Australian conference attendees. In addition it was announced that a 3-year extension of visa-free reciprocal travel was enacted between Brazil and Japan, meaning a visitor visa is also not required for attendees from Japan. A prior reciprocal agreement allowed visa-free travel for European visitors. Citizens of Mercosur member states do not need a visa to enter in Brazil. The Society of Muscle Biology encourages all potential attendees to check their entry requirements with their international office and consulate.
