Start Your Expat Life in Brazil

Brazil has always had a large number of expatriates from a variety of countries, and the reasons have largely remained constant for a long time; as well as being a fast-growing economy and a land of enormous potential, there's also the weather, beautiful beaches, and diverse culture that makes people from all over the world decide to call it home. A country of colossal diversity, there can be a huge difference between regions, from the Amazonian climate of Manaus and business-oriented cities like Brasilia, to famously vibrant metropolises like Rio de Janeiro. The most common industries for expatriates to work in are oil and gas as well as the developing financial sector, but regardless of your field, you're sure to find a diverse group of people who will know exactly what you're looking for and have already had similar experiences here. By taking advantage of our collective wisdom, you can make sure your move goes smoothly and that there are no nasty surprises.
