Have you ever wondered what it’s like traveling through Lethem in Region 9 to Guyana’s southern neighbor, Brazil? If you ever wanted to travel to Brazil from Guyana, this is your ultimate guide. So read to the end!
First of all, if you are traveling to Brazil via Lethem, I assume that you are coming from the capital city of Georgetown or somewhere along the coast. So the first step is to get to Lethem. For this, you need to use the bus service or the plane, or you can also drive down the trail from Linden to Lethem. To take the plane, contact Trans Guyana Airways or Air Services Guyana at Eugene Correia International Airport at Ogle, East Coast Demerara.
If you are taking the bus, you might want to take a look at this article: Taking the Bus Down the Lethem-Linden Trail.
Once you arrive in Lethem, you might want to relax, bathe, and refresh yourself for at least one day. In that case, you might want to check out this article to learn more about accommodation in Lethem: Hotels in Lethem.

After you’ve taken a rest, the next day you can continue your journey to Brazil. If you are just going across the Takutu River Bridge into the border town of Bonfim, you do not need to visit immigration. However, if you are going to the city of Boa Vista and further, you need to stamp your passport at the Guyana Immigration and then also at the Brazilian entry point just across the Takutu River Bridge.
The Guyana Immigration Department is located right before the Takutu River Bridge in Region 9, Guyana, South America, and the Brazilian border immigration services building is located just as you exit the bridge to your left.
Once you arrive in Bonfim, you can ask where is the taxi service to Boa Vista by saying, “Quero uma taxi para Boa Vista.”
Most people in Bonfim speak and understand English. However, if you are traveling further into Brazil, you will need to either be able to communicate in Portuguese, be able to use a language translator app, or have a bilingual person with you. Hardly anyone speaks or understands English in Brazil!
