ARRL report during August and September any foreign radio amateur will be able to operate in Brazil, whether or not a reciprocal agreement between the respective countries exists

The ARRL story reads:

IARU Region 2 News Editor Joaquín Solana, XE1R, reports that radio amateurs hoping to operate in Brazil during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio this summer are in luck and will be able to be on air without bureaucracy

During August and September any foreign radio amateur will be able to operate in Brazil, whether or not a reciprocal agreement between the respective countries exists. No IARP or CEPT license is necessary, and no fees are required. The Brazilian Amateur Radio League LABRE has obtained permission from ANATEL, the Brazilian telecommunications regulator, to handle authorizations. Amateurs who want to operate in Brazil should send LABRE:

• A copy of a valid passport (identification pages)
• A copy of the applicant's Amateur Radio license
• A list of cities in which the radio amateur plans to operate and the respective dates
• An e-mail address

Send scanned documents to LABRE via e-mail.
