      I will be traveling by plane to Leticia y then from Tabatinga to Fortaleza.
      The plane arrives in Leticia on the 12th at 2:00 pm and the plane for Manaus (and then Fortaleza) will leave ay 5:05 PM.
      Do you think that I can make it the same day to get the exit stamp at Leticia airport and to get the entry stamp from the Police Federal in Tabatinga?
      Normally for national flights one has to be an hour before. So that means I should be at the airport in Tabatings at 4:00 on at the latest.
      Who has made this and can tell me how much time was necessary?
      I could also not book the flight from Tabatinga, but then I would need to stay one day longer in Leticia/Tabatinga, what I want to avoid because the cheap flights cannot be booked for the same day. The flight from Tabatinga is with Azul. Does anybody have experience with booking at the Azul website with a foreign credit card a flight for the same day? Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
