The elusive Brazillian visa! wow...what a hard thing to attain!
We almost had to jump through hoops to get it! Brazil have very strict visa criteria and their processing is long and tedious.
Due to the embassy not prcessing the visa as quickly as we first thought, his mission date had to be put back 6 weeks - till the next transfer. It was such a relief when the visa FINALLY came! It meant he was going! really going!
