Travel to Brazil
Updated on 01 Oct 2018

Since June 6, 2014 it is mandatory to insert on every booking, at least until 72 hours before departure, the following passenger details:

  • Full Name ( mind the maximum characters allowed on name element)  
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Number and Validity of Travel Document (ex: Passport)

All details must be inserted as an SSR DOCS.

Whenever a booking with a flight to Brazil is made, the warning  “DOCS INFO REQUIRED BY BRAZILIAN AUTHORITIES” will show up below the flight segment and  will disappear after End Transaction.

All bookings without the mandatory information will receive notifications 15 Days before the flight, 07 Days, 04 Days or 03 Days, until the minimum required information on SSR DOCS is inserted. The lack of this information may result in delays at the check-in or boarding. 


GDS entries






Don’t use passenger titles such as MR, MRS, MSTR and MISS on SSR DOCS (though they are mandatory on the name element of the PNR).

Use space between surnames: SILVA SOUSA instead of SILVASOUSA.
