Default Gr. Princess Rome 21 day to Ft Laud. 11/22 Need Brazil Visa

Have to mail in passports and pay over $200.00 each to zvs.com to facilitate Brazil visa for 8 hour port visit whether we get off the ship or not. Surprise!! Just received Emergency notification from Princess at the same time that the yellow fever vaccination is also required. That was over a hundred. Surprise! No wonder it's so cheap.

We were a little upset when we had to obtain a Brazilian visa and get our yellow fever shots to board an Oceania cruise up the Amazon to to Manaus. But months later along came the Grand Princess cruise, the reverse of yours where we visited Fortalaza Brazil. As the visa is good for five years and the shots for ten, we were all prepared. And we might yet find another cruise that could involve Brazil. These two items are not a bad thing to have in your back pocket.

As a follow-up on this subject, we will be sailing to Ecuador in November where they too require our Yellow Fever protection. So the cost of the original shots have certainly been well amortised.

Thanks Ron and Jon for your insights and travel in Brazil. It sure has been the most hassle in my life for this visa, I hope the few hours we are there are worth it. I was just surprised to learn of this visa requirement, and hope not too many people on this cruise will be surprised or wait until the last minute. It's just a little scary to mail off your passport and hope it all comes back in time with the visa.

Happy Trails!

Dan
