Ecological and evolutionary consequences of plant–fungal invasions


Please check with the Brazilian consulate in your area whether you require a visa to enter Brazil. 

If you require a letter of invitation, the New Phytologist Trust, working together with our local organiser, will provide a letter of invitation upon request. To be eligible to request a letter of invitation, you must first register and pay to attend the 45th New Phytologist Symposium. Once you have registered, please contact and we will send you more information. 


Even if you are travelling from a visa-exempt country, please be prepared to provide evidence to the Brazilian immigration authorities that you have the means to support yourself for the duration of your stay in Brazil (e.g. payslips, Institution funding documents etc.). 



Please arrange an appointment with your health professional at least four to six weeks before travel in order to asses any health risks associated with your travel. Yellow fever vaccination is recommended for most visitors to the São Paulo region, but a yellow fever vaccination certificate is not currently required for entry to Brazil. This may be subject to change. All visitors to Brazil are recommended to take precautions to avoid insect bites. 


All delegates should ensure that they have adequate health insurance for their stay.
