Travel to São Paulo

Transportation to and from the Airport

The Espaço Sinimbu and nearby hotels are a good car ride from Sao Paulo-Guarulhos Airport, the closest and most convenient international airport.


The recommended transportation is an executive car (up to 2 passengers) or mini van (up to 3 passengers) booked through Selecta. Prices range from R$290/US$95 to R$380/US$125. Contact Denis Bardem at Selecta to book.

For Brazilian travelers, Espaço Sinimbu is also very close to Congonhas Airport, a 4 km car ride.


Foreigners traveling to Brazil will require a visa in order to enter the country. This visa is simple to obtain, and we recommend using a visa agent to submit your application such as ItsEasy Passport and Visa Services. They will help guide you through the process.

(90-Day maximum stay)

Applying for a Visa

In order to obtain Brazil visas, your passport must have two (2) blank facing visa pages (typically the last few pages of the passport are marked "Amendment" and are not valid for visas) and must be valid for at least six months past the date of entry into Brazil.

Due to backlogs and inconsistent processing at the Brazilian Embassy and Consulate offices, some requests may take longer than indicated - in some cases up to one month or longer even with urgent requests. All Visas are valid for 10 years allowing for multiple entries

You can complete the forms and process online at

Start by selecting Nationality, Visa Type and State of Residency to begin the process. You will require;

  • Proof of travel
