There are definitely no age limits for travelers seeking immigration assistance from VisaConcept. However, as a requirement from the South American countries, there are different age limits that if a person is younger than that will require authorization from their parents or guardians.

Nope! If you are travelling as a group such as a sports team, family or friends, each person will be treated individually. Even though some airlines may have special deals for group travelers, when entering any of the countries, everyone will be looked at individually.

Most of the travel questions are normally with airlines. But we tried our best to address some that may also reflect on issues concerning visa and permits. If you feel that we have not addressed your questions well, or have questions that we have not addressed in this part, please contact us for more.

Visa and passport Information

011. What is the best time to travel to South America?

There is no certain best time to travel to South America because the continent is large and the climates vary. This applies for (to, not for) the five countries that we offer immigration services for. For instance, Uruguay is to the Northwest while Paraguay is at the center closer with (to, not with) Brazil and Argentina. Your time is the best for you.

022. Is vaccination a must?

Vaccination is a necessary requirement and different countries have their own restrictions regarding it. Note that Yellow fever and several other diseases need vaccinations. Those diseases need a vaccination certificate and you may be requested to present one when returning to your home country. You are required to check with your immigration department as well as consulate or embassy for any restrictions on vaccinations. It is the sole responsibility of a traveler to ensure that they obtain the relevant vaccination certificates.

033. Does the five South American countries require visa for its immigrants?

Actually, different countries have their own policies on visa. As a traveler from the Middle East, Africa or Eastern parts such as Asia, visa is a requirement for almost all countries. However, travelers entering some countries for short stays not exceeding 90 days may be exempted from visa. Travelers on diplomatic or official visits may also be exempted from visas. Please check the requirements for the specific countries.

044. How can I find out about the visa requirements for my trip?

We have listed the visa requirements for each of the five South American countries. However, the visa requirements keep changing (and) are not fixed at all times. We therefore recommend that you check with your local embassy or consulate for the country you intend to visit. This way, you will be able to get the most up to date information about the requirements. If you do not have the time or (are) uncomfortable with the process do not worry, at (as) VisaConcept we will grant you the assistance you need.

Cash, Currency and Credit cards

011. Do I need to change my money to local currencies?

VisaConcept has no (not) heard about any currency restrictions in any of the five countries or even entire Latin American region. On entering any of the countries, you do not need to change to local currencies, but the most accepted currency is the US dollars. But for convenience when making purchases locally, you may want to exchange a few dollars for the local currencies.

022. Can I use my credit cards?

Many places accept the use of credit cards recognized worldwide. There are also several ATMs for international banks as well. Before departing, make sure that your ATM card will work in most of the ATM machines.

033. What is the best form of money to carry around?

For your own safety and security, VisaConcept advises that you do not carry all your liquid cash with you. If possible, use (or) carry credit cards at all times with only a little liquid cash. You can, as well, make withdrawals from ATMs only when you need the money.

044. How much money do I need to get entry?

All the five countries require that foreign nationals entering their countries be able to sustain their stay in the country. As such, you will need proof of financial support to get a visa in the first place. Your bank statement can be used or a letter from your host confirming that they will be responsible for your expenditures while in the country. For students, a letter of consent from the parents or guardian approved by the consulate will be required. If it is a scholarship, the host institution must present a statement to show their responsibility on you.
