I am a student from the UK, and I will be finishing my semester here in Rio de Janeiro in mid June. My student visa expires on 3rd August, however I intend to leave the country on 17th July in order to go travelling around South America for a month.
My problem is that I want to re-enter the country on 18th August in order to collect some luggage which I don't want to take with me on my travels. My return flight to London is 20th August. I am just wondering if I will be able to re-enter the country on a tourist visa, just for a night or two, considering my student visa will have expired by this point?
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
