Working in São Paulo

A work visa is required to be legally employed in Brazil, and any potential employer will have to apply for one through the Ministry of Labour & Employment (Ministério do Trabalho e Emprego. M.T.E.). Those intending to start a business or invest in one in Brazil will find there are a number of hoops to jump through. For more information and details, contact your embassy or seek advice from a law firm (see legal advice above).

For help navigating the complex web of paperwork for acquiring a visa or setting up a business, chances are the questions have already been asked, and answered, on the active gringoes.com forum.
