Atention: Customs or Receita Nacional does not work on Sundays!!! You do not get TIP to come in and you cannot leave Brazil as well !!!!!!
Get your entry/exit stamps here. Slow long line as only two counters were open and a lot of Bolivians immigrate to work to Brazil. The Receita Nacional is what in other countries is called Aduana. They do your vehicle papers and are right opposite the Migraciones office.
DON'T FORGET to go somewhere with WiFi to put your vehicle details into the computer and print it on the Bolivian side when leaving there BEFORE crossing the bridge to the Brazilian migration. Not as it says above on Brazilian side as they would not let us use a computer. Took a further 1.5 hrs for this! Website is www.edbv.receita.fazenda.gov.br
Receita is closed for lunch between 1130-1300. in the afternoon it closes at 18:00.
We don't have any photos of this place yet.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Atention. Crossing from Brazil to Bolivia: customs in Brazil does not work on SUNDAYS!!!... so we could not leave Brazil. Inmigration is a mess, simply go in and tell them that you are leaving Brazil. They care for you first.Report Check-In
what a confusing border crossing!
Basically there's nowhere to park, and everybody is just crossing freely without any control so if you don't pay attention your in Brésil without any stamps from either country
Would recommend parking in the street before the bridge (careful with the hundreds of trucks just stopped in the middle of the road as there's no parking for the truck drivers either)
1. Go stamp the passeports out of Bolivia, under the arch thing on the right
2. Cancel the TIP in the big aduana building up the street
3. Cross the bridge with the car
4. Go through the arch on Brasil side and stop in the little parking on the LEFT (it's often hidden behind trucks and a big sign say to go right ^^)
5. Stamp in Brazil on the right, the guy didn't ask any questions, very easy
6. Paper for the car depends if you have a Chilean car or not I suppose, for us (Chilean car) they didn't do any paper as "it's Mercosur", we asked around but no way to do a proper TIP and as we were coming to Brazil just for a week before crossing to Paraguay we thought no TIP would not be to much of an issue.
Entering Brazil “:
For people - super quick, only asked passports and a proof of covid vaccination.
For cars - firstly they said we didn’t need a TIP but we insisted and said we are not from Mercosur so they changed opinion and said we do need. Asked about the online declaration of imported goods (EDBV) that we have filled and printed few hours before.. They wanted two copies, they kept one and gave us the other one with a stamp, not sure if this is the document we need because it’s doesn’t say it’s a TIP, hope it’s ok.
Didn’t even looked at the car or what is inside.
Update: After 3 months we went out from another border and “what a surprise”! Our car has not been registered entering Brazil at all, luckily the customs’ officer was not surprised, too, so he let us pass without any fuss. Try to get a TIP, even if they don’t know what it is, maybe find an example copy to show them? 🤷♀️Report Check-In
Please be aware there is two lines and two Windows one is for entry and one is for exit of Brazil.
If unsure ask when you arrive. Because when I arrived the entry to Brazil line was huge and the exit was very small.
Only had to show passport and proof of vacine nothing else on line as of 15/01/2023Report Check-In
Opens at 7:00 am.
I believe they close also at 4 pm, as the Bolivian imigration.

here. Slow long line as only two
counters were open.
Entry for persons fairly easy,
hand over your passport, covid vaccination. They scan your passport and that‘s it. 3 min job.
Entry for persons fairly easy, hand over your passport, covid vaccination and a copy of the Bolivian exit stamp.
Car is way more complicated... You need to fill the receta Federal for the aduana online, but at this time the web page (mentioned above) only worked on computers not with mobiles or tabloids. If you don't have access to a computer you can go to a shop / exchange office on the Bolivian side right opposite of the aduana, see the our other entry. They charge 30 Bobs and fill it for you and add all necessary copies. This documents you just hand over and wait....
Their system was broken, could not print out the form. Took a lot of explaining that I was trying for 3 days, sent me back to Bolivia but finally made the tip on their computer. Need lots of copies. Didn't look at the dog, although I had a paper from the vet. 3 hoursReport Check-In
Drove right past before realizing this is where we stamp in and receive our "tip". Security told us no need to register, we reminded them that we're a foreign plated vehicle and they still said no problem... Found the receita office empty at lunch until 1:30, submitted copies of license passport title and fazenda form, which is basically just an exit form for when you leave. Their system was down and assured us we will not need a permission and stamped our exit request instead. Very informal, nobody was doing any work, everybody gave conflicting information on the process of fines, renewal, required papers, office locations, and maximum stay. Basically they're counting minutes til days end. Friendly, but mostly useless. I really hope we don't encounter an issue with an official who says we need a TIP.Report Check-In
We were told to wait until 7pm, around 6pm they told us nobody's coming because we're the only foreign car here in days and the officer will come here next day morning just for our TIP paperworks. Yes they asked for that form too.Report Check-In
Arrived at 1.30 on a Sunday, entrance stamps took less than 5 minutes. No-one else in the queue. The aduana process is slower, and we needed copies of everything! The boss is out on a job so we are left waiting for him to return...Report Check-In
they also close at 18h00 so plan ahead. get there ay least 30-60 min before to avoid being stuck.
we had to stay for the night on the Bolivian side (not lovely at all...)
otherwise pretty easy/straightforward
Entrance in Brazil. To enter Brazil you go first to immigration (was fast). Then you go to customs (receita) if you have a vehicle. You need to register first on edbv.recieta.fazenda.br and print the resume. You also need a copy of your passport and of the your bike's property card. Be sure you have everything ready because if not you'll have to go back to Bolivia to print everything. After giving the papers we waited about an hour to get cleared. They didn't look at the bikesReport Check-In
the receita (customs) is closed/At lunch from 11:30 to 13:00 (they returned at 1330 and started working at 1345...).
apart from that the whole border was easy.
Arrived around noon, and even with a 20 person line, went pretty fast. We had brought our printed visas that we obtained online, and once at the desk, it took 5 minutes to get processed. Then went across the road to the Aduana for the vehicle check in.Report Check-In

Entering Brazil. Getting TIP. Go here and enter vehicle detail, bring 2 copies to Aduana!! www.edbv.receita.fazenda.gov.br . We did not enter our vehicle details online, and they insisted we leave and do so. Pointed to place across the bridge that could provide computer. Need 2 printouts of form after input, copy of license (front and back), copy of vehicle registration. Once we supplied all these, told us to bring the car to the side of the building in 20 minutes after our details were entered in the system.Report Check-In
Got our Brazil exit stamps without delays.
Canceled our vehicle’s TIP with the Receita Federal and got a signed and stamped copy of the canceled document as a precaution if asked for it re-entering Brazil. 10 min process.
quick and easy. migration took around 20 mins (a Bolivian family were trying to enter Brazil without documents) and then handed in tip across the road.Report Check-In
Never checked the Jeep. Got permit just by showing title of Jeep. Very fast immigration, 5min.Report Check-In
RUM: Wir mussten zwei Stunden warten. Zum Glück hat es geregnet und die Temperaturen waren angenehm. Ansonsten lief alles reibungslos.Report Check-In
For exiting Brazil- The rush is definitely over by 11, but if you wait too long to start the paperwork in Bolivia (entry stamps, fotocopias, Aduana), the Aduana office will be closed at 12:30 for 2 hours. Parking is to your right as you approach, before any of the buildings.Report Check-In
quite complicated to enter Brazil. you are supposed to fill a paper for your vehicule by internet before to go to «receitas federal». as we did not know what and where and how to do it, we said we are old people who don't know how work internet. so the girl was very nice and did it for us. in total it tooks 1 hour.Report Check-In
Took an hour as only one counter open to deal with people going both ways!! Nice friendly guy. Locals have to be given a form at the counter, (then complete it!) but we didn't need one. DON'T FORGET to go somewhere with WiFi to put your vehicle details into the computer and print it on the Bolivian side when leaving there BEFORE crossing the bridge to the Brazilian migration. Not as it says above on Brazilian side as they would not let us use a computer. Took a further 1.5 hrs for this! Website is www.edbv.receita.fazenda.gov.brReport Check-In
The Receita Nacional is what in other countries is called Aduana. They do your vehicle papers and are right opposite the Migraciones office.Report Check-In
Immigration desk for passports (entering or exiting Brasol) opens at 09:00 hrs. Long queue started forming around 08:00 hrs but once the early rush was over, it was quieter by 10:30 hrs. Exit Brazil aduana was very quick.Report Check-In
Managed to cross here to Brasilwithout cancelling\asked about TIP. Motorcycle sold in Bolivia. Going home....Report Check-In
Get your entry stamps here. Slow long line as only two counters were open and a lot of Bolivians immigrate to work to brazil. Tip: there were pantanal tour operators on border. We negotiated to 400r pp 3d2n tour. They told we Can leave vehicle at police check point near pantanal so no need to come back to corumba. We found tour not well organised as no body came to pick us up and we ended up driving right to azul aroze which was a long dirt road stretch and after Bolivia we were not inclined to do it. Accommodation was basic and so was food. Importation of RV: easy just go opposite the immigration. Officer there pointed to an empty computer - put your details in the PC ( you can choose Ingles :). She helped us print n fill the form. Took photocopies of title and registration (first country in 13 where we didn't need to give our copies ;). She asked how many days we want permission for and all done. Sanitary check was easy they didn't search the vehicle just a cursory look inside. Total time 2.5 hours (30 mins Bolivia, 2 hours Brazil). No fee on border but we had brazilian visa done back home.Report Check-In
