How to get to Vitoria

The workshop will take place in Vitória, the capital of the Espírito Santo state located in the southeast of Brazil. Vitória's airport (airport code: VIX) can be reached with a one-hour flight from international airports in Rio de Janeiro (airport code: GIG) and São Paulo (airport code: GRU). The airport is served by the main Brazilian airlines TAM and Gol in cooperation with international airlines connecting in GIG and GRU. There are also AZUL and TRIP airlines.



Flight suggestions for those who are also attending LAOP 2012 (Latin American Optics & Photonics Conference)



Participants should inquire as soon as possible about visa requirements for their travel to Brazil. A list of countries whose nationals are not required visas is provided in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Brazil.  You are encouraged to check the most up-to-date information directly with the Brazilian Consulate in your country of residence.  In case a visa is required, a "tourist visa" is sufficient, since "business visas" are NOT necessary for conference participation. For participants requiring visas, a "visa assistance" letter is required.


For all the hotels in this list we take into account the proximity with the Federal Univertisty of Espírito Santo (UFES) and the airport.
