(5 votes)

Foreigners will have 30 (thirty) days from the date of arrival in Brazil to register with the Federal Police in the city where he/she will be based, in order to obtain the CRNM (Carteira de Registro Nacional Migratório - National Migration Registry Card), which is an identity card for foreigners. Students should inform us the arrival date in Brazil in advance, because the Federal Police service is done with a prior appointment.


FEA-RP International Office will help you scheduling a visit to Federal Police and someone from CAPEE (USP-RP Center of Support for Foreign Visitors) will be there with you to get the correctly documents done, help you filling up the forms, getting the certified copies and paying the fees. You just need to bring the original documents.


The Federal Police will require the following documents in order to issue an CRNM:

  • Original valid passport;
  • Visa application form;
  • Proof of payment of R$204,77, for the foreigner ID;
  • Two (02) recent photos, size 3x4 (colored, white background, front, unadorned smooth paper);


The documents requested and the amount of fees may have sudden changes, so it's always important to be aware.
