RNE Card (São Paulo)
I have heard a lot of complains about the delay on getting the RNE card. This protocol comes always valid for Protected content , and they inform at Federal Police that during the period the RNE card will be available, but it never happens before 1 year or 1 year and a half. So, here goes a tip:
Once a foreigner has a RNE protocol, wait a few days and go back to Federal Police where the registration was made and ask for the 'Tela do Sincre'. They do this in the same day and it is free.
'Tela do Sincre" + the RNE Protocol is the substitution of the RNE card. So with this you can open a bank account in any brazllian bank, make a CPF, a CTPS, a CNH... without having to wait more than a year....
