Hi all - I was wondering what people's experiences are with investors visas and the Ministério do Trabalho. As an investor, I am in the process of applying for permanent residency in Brazil. In theory, all that stands in my way is the MTE...and in my way it stands. The company assisting me with the process affirmed that it should take a maximum of 20 days for the MTE to approve my request. Yet, here I am, 45 days later. Any thoughts? Do they have some form of internal processing deadline? Or can they just keep me waiting for as long as they please?
