Brazil permanent residency visa


If a foreign national has any of the seven situations described above and he/she intends to live in Brazil for more than two years, then the authorities may grant him/her permanent residency visa. The purpose of permanent residency visa is to allow a person to live and work in Brazil for good. But these permanent visas are subject to a revision right after three years from the date of issuance. Our lawyers in Brazil can assist a person with his/her renewal of a visa. This renewal is important if a person wants to live and work in Brazil uninterrupted. If a person continues to live in Brazil for four years with a permanent visa, he/she may apply for citizenship. Brazil may grant him/her citizenship if that person has knowledge of the country’s culture and understands it, if he/she speaks Portuguese and has Portuguese skills. But if a person marries a Brazilian citizen, then his/her timing to get citizenship might get shorter than usual.
