Citizenship based on marriage !!

Good morning everybody.. I'm living in Brazil since 20/03/2020 and married my Brazilian wife on 20/05/2020. I applied for residence permit trice but got delayed due to corona. Finally I got my CRNM CARD in September 2021, which was issued on 06/09/2021. I applied for citizenship of brazil based on my marriage to my Brazilian citizen wife in October 2021 but it was denied for not completed 1 year residence. I'm very much confused. Please help me to get this done. Thanks

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON NATURALIZATION PROCEDURES CAN BE OBTAINED IN BRAZIL AT ANY FEDERAL POLICE PRECINCT.

This information page is valid as of 04/03/99 and replaces all previous ones.

"Residence in Brazil" for purposes of naturalization is counted from the issue date of your CRNM.  You can apply again anytime starting on 06/10/2022.. 

In order to apply, you will need to update the documentation that you presented to obtain your CRNM, present criminal background checks from the Brazilian Federal and State authorities (generally available online), and provide proof of Portuguese language proficiency, usually in the form of a passing certificate on the CelpeBras exam.  See "Naturalização" on the Polícia Federal website for complete details.

Follow abthree. He has done all of this and provides the knowledge first hand  :one

Thanks you for your help and replay @ abthree&taxanbrazil.. However PF replied " As per ORDINANCE No. 623, OF NOVEMBER 13, 2020, which provides for naturalization procedures:
Immigrant must meet the following requirements:

I)     Has civil capacity under Brazilian law

II) Resides in Brazil for an indefinite period of at least 04 (four) years;

III)  Has the ability to communicate in Portuguese

In the analysis of your process, you still do not have enough time to make the request for naturalization, since you entered Brazil on, Entry Date: 03/19/2020, and became

resident for an indefinite period on 09/16/2021, thus not having 01 year of resident.

Only from 06/16/2022 can another request be made, since after that date the minimum period of 01 year of resident will have been fulfilled.

Note: The term is 04 years, and it drops to 01 year of resident if you are married" which is confusing. Also I applied first time on 06/07/2020 for CRNM CARD  and processing was delaying due to pandemic so won't I get discounts for it by PF?

I almost never say "never" in Brazil, because anything is possible.  You may talk to the right PF agent when s/he is having an especially good day and get a break; you're much more likely, though to get a kick in the pants and maybe a black mark on your record for asking for special treatment when the rules are clear.  You're eligible one year after the issue date on your CRNM.

As I said above, your petition won't be accepted unless you've passed CelpeBras anyway.   Although it's usually given twice a year, it was only given once in 2020 and 2021 because of covid.  The last time was in July 2021; the 2022 schedule hasn't been published yet, that I can find.

Thanks you for your help and suggestions.. So I can apply anytime after 06/09/2022??

And also what PF means to say by " Only from 06/16/2022 can another request be made, since after that date the minimum period of 01 year of resident will have been fulfilled". Please explain this.

It's probably just a typo.  The date that appears on your CRNM is authoritative.   :top:

Thanks you very much for clarifying my doubts.. Have a nice day 😀

I have applied the Brazilian citizenship all went well

I gave my fingerprints at the PF then I have seen in the system it was in a stage of  Análise MJSP.

did not ask me any documents further during the stage of análise MJSP so it seems like all went well on the stage of Análise MJSP, but now when I see the system it came back again to the stage  of análise PF


my question is as far as I had no problem in the  both stages PF and MJSP then again came back to the stage  as análise PF in the system, it means All went well just wait  for the publication in  Diario official?


will PF inform me to come there to get the citizenship?

09/18/22 Hi, rasvi. Please see my answer to this question in your other thread. Congratulations on reaching this point!  You're still a long way from the Diário Oficial, though.

thank you .are there agencies specializing in intervening with the federal police for the naturalization process?  I mean case facilitators.  I specify well.  Aid agencies to speed up the file
