Crossing into Brazil

It is possible to cross into Brazil for the day without stopping at immigration, but this depends on your bus driver. Some will drive on through, others take the law to the letter and boot you off the bus at the border. Citizens of the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and a long list of other countries need to buy a visa from the Brazilian consulate before venturing across the border, making it a costly day trip. See Puerto Iguazú Services for details. Citizens of EU member states do not require a visa, but double check with the consulate before traveling.

Buses to Brazil's side of the falls leave regularly, with departures half hourly from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Make sure to tell the driver to stop at customs and take your bags as the driver may not wait. Just keep your ticket and catch the next bus that comes along.

No fruits, vegetables, meat or dairy products can enter Brazil. On the Argentine side is a duty free store and exchange house.
