Frequently Asked Questions
A permanent visa, such as the investment visa, allows a foreigner to live and work in Brazil. An official Brazilian resident alien with a permanent visa enjoys every right and obligation of a Brazilian citizen, except voting and political rights.
The resident alien is also allowed to bring his or her family and come and go as he or she wishes. A minimum stay period in Brazil is one entrance to Brazil every other 2 years, in order to maintain his or her residency status before the Brazilian authorities.
The investment and transferring of funds must be made throughout and into a Brazilian Corporation. It can be made into his or her newly opened company or into an already existing Brazilian corporation.
The corporation can then invest the monies at its convenience, including real estate, bank investments, stocks, etc. You can choose your own investment, but it must be done in the name of your corporation. Most foreigners, usually those who are already purchasing real estate, take advantage of it. But I have seen many foreignersrecently investing in stocks and even savings accounts, where interest rates and dividends are much higher than those applied and seen in their native countries.
Monies previously transferred to Brazil by foreigner to a Brazilian individual, for any reason; do not fulfill the requirements of this visa.
Exceptionally, when bringing less than USD$55 000, a foreigner must produce and file a business plans first, susceptible of a difficult approval of an Immigration Board, and this exception does create employment requirements, as opposed to the transfer of no less than USD$50,000.
This type of permanent visa is valid for 5 years, by then the foreign resident must show proof that the corporation is in good standing and that money was not taken back to the country of origin. After the first period of 5 years and one renewal, money can be taken back and there will not be any requirements for the subsequent renewal, which will be valid for 9 years. The second residency carries no requirements and is valid for nine years and may be renewed as many times resident alien deem necessary for the same period.
Resident aliens may apply for Brazilian Citizenship throughout this visa after 4 years of official legal residency in Brazil, as long as the foreigner did not leave Brazil for more than 18 months during this 4 years period and is fluent in Portuguese.
