Brazil's Immigration Authority cracks down on Seafarers identity documents
UK Club correspondents Proinde P&I have provided the below Circular for the interest of Club Members. The Circular outlines the seafarer identity documents currently accepted by the Brazil Immigration Authority (Federal Police) and the heightened immigration controls currently in place.
Only SIDs issued by ILO C185 member states are legally valid in Brazil as a travel document to exempt working seafarers from the need for a visa, regardless of nationality.
For more information please get in touch with your usual club contact who will be pleased to assist you.
