Hi everyone,

@El Hasan, any inputs on the few questions asked by Mohamed.Omar1? It will be most appreciated if you could share your experience.


Are you kidding?  Meat is one of the cheaper things there, at least compared to the U.S.  kkkk
I bought meat for a Mother's Day churrasco, several kilos, and it was less than $50.  I was amazed.

Well yeah, if you are thinking in terms of the US dollar it is cheap. But when you plan on living here a long time, you need to start thinking like a Brazilian. When I first moved here I bought R$600 worth of meat to fill my didn't. That's a lot of money to a Brazilian. That's 3 nights of heavy partying. I think it's expensive here in Reals. If the USD goes back to 1 equals 1.6 I'm out of here.

Hi everyone!
   Thanks Bhavna! Salam o alykum Omar.

The average salary here is R$1200-1500. But it depends upon your qualification and profession as well as professional experience. Foreign professional qualification needs to be revalidated bureaucratically here to find a good and professional job.
You can live here  and pass a good life if you have a job, but saving  alot is really difficult.

Brazil is one of the expensive countries as well. If you are paying rent of house, it really gets difficult alone. If you have your own house, you can save  a little bit.

If you have a business Brazil may be a paradise.
