Brazil Investor Visa

Brazil Investor Visa

Brazil has a history of hyper-regulation of labor relations and potential fines and legal liability for those who do not follow the many applicable laws and regulations.

It is key that foreign companies engaging with local companies in Brazil retain qualified licensed counsel to advise on the immigration aspects of work in Brazil as well for the actual applications for the needed work visas, authorizations, and permits.

Brazil Company Investor Visa

To obtain an investor visa as a foreign partner in Brazil, several requirements must be met:

  1. Investment in a New or Existing Company:

    • The minimum investment is R$ 500,000.00.
    • For investments in innovation, basic or applied research, scientific or technological activities, the investment can range between R$ 150,000.00 and R$ 500,000.00.
  2. Investment as a Representative of a Foreign Company:

    • The investment amount depends on the area of investment in Brazil.
    • For areas such as innovation, basic or applied research, scientific or technological investment, the amount ranges between R$ 150,000 and R$ 500,000.
    • For other types of investment, the minimum amount is R$ 500,000.00.
  3. Residence Rights:

    • The investor visa grants the right to reside in Brazil.
    • It also allows for the regularization of the residence status of dependents, such as a spouse or children, without requiring additional investment.
  4. Steps for Obtaining Permanent Residency as a Business Investor:

    • Apply for a visa outside Brazil according to the investment type and amount.
    • Provide the required documentation, including a business plan and proof of external investment.
    • After arriving in Brazil, apply for temporary or permanent residence authorization, depending on the investment type.
    • For temporary authorization, apply for permanent residence 90 days before its expiration.

These are the general guidelines, and specific cases might require additional steps or documentation. For more detailed guidance and assistance, it is advisable to consult with legal experts or specialized agencies.
