the world's smartest travel social network
In connection with an upcoming press trip to South America, I was asked for my Journalist registration number. Clearly, I have no idea what that is as I've never had one..
Can someone explain and better yet, tell me how to go about obtaining one?
I've had to send a lot of different things, but that is a new one. I sure hope someone responds.
Doug. Ask the aksers what they mean by that request. They are the only peeps who know these answers. Never, ever in all my world-wide travels have heard of this. Let us know your denouement.
if you come to Brazil let me know
@Lynn I used my Federal Employer Identification Number - which I got for my business tax returns (sort of like a Social Security number, but for businesses instead of people.)
@Max If I get my visa in time, I'll be there this summer.
We still don't know what number they asked for, only that the Federal ID # seemed to work. Maybe one of a slew of other numbers would have worked just as well!
Seems like getting the visa is still a hassle, even for travel writers. How much does it cost?
You're probably right on the number :)
The visa was $140 plus a $20 expediting fee. After speaking with two people familiar with Brazil, the reason it's so much is that's what we charge their citizens for a visa to the US. They raised theirs just to meet our price. (Thanks US.)
Luckily for me, their Washington consulate agreed to issue it in seven days. The two people I know that are from Brazil that came here recently each took over three months to get theirs from our consulate. There's absolutely no excuse for that.
