Stapled Visa


Brazilian Visas are expensive and slow to come by, but Jeremy and I happen to have ones from our honeymoon in ’05 and they are valid for 5 years. His is in his Passport, ready to go, but mine is in an expired one. I took both the new and old ones to the Brazilian Consulate in LA, hoping that they could re-stamp my new one — but this was their brilliant solution. I guess staples are the official method. Let’s hope I can get past customs.

    I had a job in Mexico once where my work visa was a little piece of paper stapled to my Visa. I thought for sure I’d be thrown out of the country, as everyone who had to “approve” it had never seen one before.
