Ok folks I have been around the globe but have somehow avoided ever needing a visa. Now that Im traveleing to Brazil Im a little edgy about the process. So far I understand that US citizens can pick up a visa good for 90 days and then we can extend it to 180 while in Brazil. The part Im uneasy about is the fact that you need a copy of your plane ticket to apply for your visa! Ive never applied for a visa so Im kinda clueless as to what extent they look into your life to say yes. I think I may have a few outstanding tickets in another state (no warrant) and I know this sounds like a stupid question but does anyone know how extensively they search your history? I dont like the idea of spending 700 bucks for a non refundable ticket and then dishing over another 100 for a visa that could be turned down! So is this whole visa thing just some formality to collect the 100 bucks and save time at the airport or what? I dont have a record, but Im sure they could find a reason if thats the idea. Not really a big deal but I would like to hear some experiences with this. Anybody ever have any problems?

I think the fact that you have a couple of Tickets ( Traffic?) should not affect wether or not you get a VISA for another country, My first advise is to pay the tickets to get them out'a the way, because when you get back, those tickets may turn into warrents??? If you really nervous about spending the $$$, contact a para-legal and get them to look into it for you, they should be able to tell you the law when it applies to state or county violations and international visa's. The part about asking for your plane ticket, i am going to guess, is the wanna make sure your going home, as much as you love the country your going to and they love you as a tourist, they don't want you to make it your home...not unless you have big $$$, then they would welcome you with open arms for as long as you want!!!

Hope that helps some dude!! B)
