It can take up to 30 days depending on Consulate and regulations. To book your international flights, you only need a valid passport, in case you want to book more than 90 days out from trip. But, remember you will need the Visa to enter Brazil!

"Entry, Exit & Visa Requirements"
As of June 14, 2019, Brazil WILL NO-LONGER REQUIRE citizens of (4-countries) UNITED STATES, Canada, Australia and Japan traveling with AXF to carry a Brazilian Visa to Brazil for the purpose of Tourism. A Valid passport is still required and should be valid 6-momths from day of travel. Citizens of other countries may be required to obtain your Brazilian visa in advance from the Brazilian Embassy to gravel, check with our office for more details. There are no "airport visas" and immigration authorities will refuse entry into Brazil to anyone not possessing a valid visa. The adjudicating official at the Brazilian Embassy or consulate may require a birth certificate and notarized travel authorization to issue a visa to a minor.
U.S. citizens and other foreign travelers must fill out a small immigration form on arrival that will be stamped and handed back by immigration officials at the airport. It is important to retain this form to hand back to immigration officials upon exit from the country. According to the Brazilian Embassy’s website, visitors who lose this form will have to get clearance from the Brazilian Federal Police to leave the country and may have to pay a fine.
Remember that while in Brazil, you are subject to local law. Showing contempt to a Brazilian government official at the port of entry, or elsewhere, is a serious offense.
