Arriving to Brazil

Consulates and Police

There is a smartphone application created by the Government of the State of São Paulo that provides the addresses of Consulates in São Paulo, and also the addresses and telephone numbers of the Tourist Police of São Paulo. The application provides information in English and in Portuguese.

App Consulados / Consulates

Embassies and Consulates

In case you need assistance from your government representative in Brazil, it is useful to keep at hand the phone number of the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate of your country. All foreign embassies are located in the Brazilian capital, Brasília. Some of the Brazilian major cities have Consulates that may help foreign citizens in case of need. 

You can find a list of Embassies and Consulates in Brazil, with information about their phone numbers, web sites, email addresses and physical addresses, at these web pages:

Travel insurance emergency phone number

You have probably paid for travel insurance (if you did not, think about it, please!). Your travel insurance contract will contain a phone number and other ways of obtaining help if you have any health problem, accident, legal problem, police problem and other situations. Keep at hand the phone number of your travel insurance service, please.

Credit card emergency phone numbers

If your credit card is lost or stolen, you can make a free call to report what happened. The main phone lines for the major credit cards are:
American Express – 0800 785050
MasterCard and Visa – 0800 784456
Diners Club – 0800 784444

You can call those numbers from any Brazilian city.

Police and emergency phone numbers in Brazil

Public Utility Services all over Brazil use a 3 digit telephone number beginning with 1. All cities use the same emergency numbers. The most important of these numbers are:
190: Military Police
192: Ambulance
193: Firefighters
194: Federal Police

The telephone number 190 (Military Police) is the most widely used number for emergencies. The 190 emergency service will transfer the call to the respective service based on the nature of emergency.

In the major Brazilian cities (including São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro) the 190 emergency service will be able to provide assistance in English and Spanish. Foreign visitors should, however, prefearably use the Tourist Police in case they need any help.
