Work Visas

For the foreign employee hired to work in their company’s Brazilian subsidiary, a temporary or permanent Brazilian Work Visa is required. The list of available Work Visas is quite lengthy, and determining the correct one will be dependent on a variety of factors, including:

  • The nature of the individual’s professional role.
  • Their specific reason for coming to Brazil.
  • Their intended length of stay.

In most cases, Brazilian Work Visas are only made available to those individuals who will be employed by a registered Brazilian company, and who will, therefore, be subject to Brazilian labor and tax regulations.
