Brazil is a pain

I might find myself going to Brazil sometime in the next month to do some consulting there. Getting into Brazil is going to be a pain, as they require your passport with an expiration more than 6 months after your date of travel, two copies of an application form with two passport photos, a letter from your employer taking financial responsibility for you while you're there (which must be on company letterhead and signed by someone else - what if you're self-employed?), a copy of your travel itinerary, approval from the Brazilian Ministry of Labor, and a $210 application fee.

I understand that they're being a nuisance as a reply to the US being a nuisance for Brazilian citizens to enter, but that doesn't make it any less of a nuisance.
