Work in Brazil

Our participative guide will help you find out more on the work market and the legal framework in Brazil.

The Brazilian labour market

In recent years, Brazil has been suffering through an economic recession and a government austerity program. Still, Brazil possesses the world's eighth-largest economy, so there are jobs for those who qualify. Foreigners wishing to work in Brazil will need to have skills not readily available within Brazil. Also, many jobs will require at least a working knowledge of Portuguese. Another route, if you do not possess an in-demand skill set, is to seek permanent residency, which will grant you the right to work legally in Brazil.
