I entered Brazil on March 4, 2011 and stayed 9months(extended for 3 months & overstayed by 3). I am now ready to return after being out 5months and 1 week. A friend of mine who works for PF asked an immigration officer at the airport when I can return and he said, I have another 90+90days starting March 4,2012, as long as my fine is paid. Will I have any trouble entering???
I have heard so many different things..See below:
1-Woman from Brazilian consulate in NY - "You can enter one year from your first date, but you will need to convince the officer that you wont stay again"
2-Another woman from Brazilian consulate - "You have to wait a year to enter"
3-Every gringo - "You must stay out 180 days"
4-Guy in Airport Immigration to another officer - "She is allowed entry a year after her first date regardless"
5-Guy in PF to my Brazilian boyfriend - "She can try to enter a yr after her first date, but there is a chance she wont get in. We count the dates overstayed after the first entry date"
6-Polish girl who overstayed-"I'm banned for a year"
7-Woman in consulate in SF to girl who overstayed - "You cant enter for a year"
8-Guy in PF to gringo - "6months plus the time overstayed"
I trust the info from PF to PF more than anything else, but would like to hear from those who have experienced this situation! Please advise
