LBA-ECO investigators who are planning on driving in Brazil must obtain a valid temporary Brazilian driver's license.  

Please allow 30 days for the processing.  The temporary driver's license is valid for one year or until your Brazilian Visa expires, whichever comes first.  

1.  Obtain an International Driver's License.  This license is available at www.aaa.com.  A $15 fee will be charged and a passport photo is required.

2.  Notarize a photocopy of the front and back of your valid US driver's license.

3.  Make a photocopy of the pages of your passport containing your photo and your current Brazilian visa.

4.  Mail the following items to Saulo dos Santos:

  • your original international driver's license (note, this is not the same as the inter-American driver's license)
  • a notarized copy of your US driver's license
  • copies of your passport pages
  • US$50.00 (money order or personal check must be made out specifically to "Saulo dos Santos")

IMPORTANT: Please use a trackable mail system such as FED-EX to mail your paperwork and payment.

Payment may also be made by direct deposit at any bank in Brazil. The Brazilian Real equivalent of US$50 should be deposited into Enterprise's bank account:

Banco do Brasil S.A.
Agency number 0052-3
Account number 105008-7
Account name "Enterprise Cons. Int. S/C Ltda."

Please indicate which site you will be working at so that your temporary Brazilian driver's license may be mailed to the site.  The $50.00 fee pays for an official translation of the notarized US driver's license copy, as well as mailing costs.  Upon receipt of the required documents and fee, Saulo will obtain an official translation of the US driver's license and have the International driver's license stamped by DETRAN (Department of Transit).  This temporary license will be mailed to the site where you will be arriving.

LBA participants who do not have a regular Brazilian driver's license must carry the stamped international driver's license, US driver's license, official translation, and passport pages with you while driving LBA vehicles in Brazil.
