Everything you MUST Know...
Your paths to residency and the best citizenship in Latin America.
After reading the chapters on taxes in Brazil, you’ve imagined how life would be in this beautiful, tropical country. Now, you might be asking yourself: “How can I become a resident of Brazil?”
Put very shortly, besides typical student and employee visas, there are 6 relevant visa/residency options:
Mercosur, Nomad, Family Reunion, Retiree, Entrepreneur, and Investor.
The cost for the process ranges from USD 2000.00 to USD 4,000.00, depending on the type of residency and the documentation necessary.
Once you have lived in Brazil long enough, you can apply for citizenship.
1 year of permanent residency if married to a Brazilian, if you have a Brazilian child, or if you are from a Portuguese-speaking country.
2 years of permanent residency for serving the country or excelling in an artistic, scientific, or business capacity.
4 years of permanent residency otherwise.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. First, let’s dive deeper into the visa options and the immigration process.
