FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a Brazilian Investor visa?
A “permanent visa”, such as the investment visa, allows a foreigner to live and work in Brazil. You will be treated like an ordinary Brazilian except for voting and political rights.
Are the investor visa holder’s family entitled to come to Brazil?
The resident alien is also allowed to bring his or her family and come and go as he or she wishes.
Is there a minimum stay period?
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.
Where are the investment monies transferred?
The investment and transferring of funds must be made into the account of your Brazilian Company or another Brazilian company if you wish.
What can be done with these monies once they are in the company’s account?
The company 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 company. Most foreigners, usually those who are already purchasing real estate, take advantage of it. But you can invest in stocks and even savings accounts, where interest rates and dividends are much higher than those applied and seen in other countries.
How long is the investor visa valid for?
You get permanent residency status.
Who has to file the application?
The person who wants to become a Brazilian citizen must apply themselves. If a person under the age of 18 wants to naturalize then the parents or legal guardians must file the application.
