The Brazil guide

Finding legal work in Brazil can be difficult, but it is possible if you meet certain specific qualifications, and obtain a signed work contract from a company which will sponsor you. However, be sure to begin your job search from your home country. It would not be advisable to move to Brazil and assume that you will find a job after you have relocated.

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.

Rio de Janeiro may conjure up images of golden beaches populated by unimaginably beautiful people, or of streets filled with Carnival revellers. While beaches and Carnival are inextricably part of Rio, The Marvelous City has much more to offer. If you visit Brazil, you owe it to yourself to devote at least a few days to explore this legendary city.

If you are planning to travel or relocate to Brazil, the Brazilian government allows you to bring your dog or cat into Brazil, and there is no quarantine period. However, you will need to supply the proper documentation. Also, you'll need to make arrangements with your airline. The importation of animals other than cats and dogs must be approved in advance by Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock.
