Brazil is the eighth-largest economy in the world but is recovering from a recession in 2015 and 2016 that ranks as the worst in the country’s history. Brazil has traditionally been a recipient of immigrants, with its southeast being the prime destination. Recent immigrants come mainly from Argentina, Chile, and Andean countries many are unskilled migrants or are returning Brazilian nationals. Since Brazil’s economic downturn in the 1980s, emigration to the United States, Europe, and Japan has been rising but is negligible relative to Brazil’s total population. The majority of these emigrants are well-educated and middle-class.
Sao Paulo is the most popular destination for expats and offers the majority of job opportunities, with numerous multinational companies having their head offices there.
Finance, IT and engineering are all areas that require graduates. There is new transport infrastructure plans to get the country ready for the summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 but the effect of the games on the economy is yet to be seen.
Graduates with experience and knowledge of Portuguese are at a considerable advantage. The best way in is to join an international company with a posting in Brazil.
WORK PERMIT VISA
In order to have a job in Brazil, you will need both a residence permit (either temporary or permanent) and a work visa. The first step is made by your future employer in Brazil who will apply for a work permit at the Brazilian Ministry of Labour and Employment by submitting the work contract and a set of other documents. After the application is allowed by the Ministry you will have to apply for a work visa at a Brazilian embassy or consulate.
