Investors & Work Visas

Investors Visas in Brazil

For the entrepreneur relocating to Brazil for the purposes of running a business, or for the C-level executive appointed to oversee their company’s Brazilian subsidiary, a Brazilian Investor Visa is required.

Much like the US Green Card, the Investor Visa:

  • Endows Permanent Residency status.

  • Group visa for you and your family members.

  • Grants the option to apply for Brazilian Citizenship and Passport in a couple of years.

The Investor Visa also requires a minimum level of financial investment of R$ 500k BRL for individual investor OR R$ 600k for legal entity investor, in a Brazilian company.

Work Visas in Brazil

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.
