Original response:

As Fellipe and Mariz noted, the reason for the requirement to obtain a visa prior to travel is that Brazil treats U.S. visa seekers in the same way the US treats Brazilian visa applicants. That doesn't seem unreasonable.

Many in the US are unaware of the requirement to obtain a visa in advance, and without fail every time I go to the Brazilian consulate in New York City there is someone who plans to travel that evening or the next and hopes to obtain a visa on the spot, an endeavor not associated with high probably of success.

When you follow the process to obtain a tourist visa, it's relatively straightforward, and these days you get a 10 year visa, that, if the visa waiver discussed below comes through, you will not need to repeat.

Brazilians spend billions of dollars each year in the US at a time when that spending is much needed. The number of US visas issued to Brazilians has grown significantly and the visa application process has been streamlined in comparison to the way it was in the past. New staff have been employed at US embassy/consulates in Brazil to reduce waiting times for interviews.

Is Brazil really that dangerous? | Yahoo Answers

I've heard from the Lonely Planet Brazil travel guide that cities like Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo are crime ridden cities. Based on your experiences (if you have been to Brazil), what can you say about this issue? How do you survive those bad hangovers criminals give you? Any suggestions? Thanks!
