Working and living in Brazil – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Brazil requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Brazilian expat life. Living abroad in Brazil raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Brazil?ʺ, ʺDoes my house need central heating for the winter months?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Brasilia should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Brazilian municipality in Rio de Janeiro?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Brazil is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Brazil aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Brazil. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from housing and household, to administration & finance or food and shopping, up to health-care.
