Are you a digital nomad looking for new opportunities?
Do you want to experience the beauty and culture of Brazil while continuing to work remotely?
If so, the Digital Nomad Visa in Brazil might be the perfect option for you.
In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about this visa, including its legal requirements, necessary documents, and application process.
Legal Requirements for Digital Nomad Visa
The Digital Nomad Visa in Brazil is regulated by the Resolução Normativa nº 45/21 of National Immigration Council (CNIg). According to this regulation, a “digital nomad” is an immigrant who is capable of remotely performing work activities for a foreign employer.
To be eligible for this visa, your employer must be located outside of Brazil. Remote jobs linked to Brazilian employers will not be acceptable for this visa type. Additionally, you must provide proof of your ability to carry out your professional activities remotely.
Documents Required for Digital Nomad Visa
To apply for a Digital Nomad Visa in Brazil, you must provide the following documents:
- Valid passport
- Health insurance that is valid in Brazil for the duration of your visa
- Proof of payment of visa fees
- Visa application form
- Proof of means of entry transport into the national territory
- Criminal record certificate issued by the country of origin
- Documents that prove your condition as a digital nomad
- Document proving your affiliation, apostilled and sworn translated
- Power of attorney, if the applicant is represented by an attorney
- Statement by the applicant attesting to the ability to carry out its professional activities remotely
- Proof of salary in a monthly amount equal to or greater than US$ 1,500.00 or bank savings in the minimum amount of US$ 18,000.00
Application Process for Digital Nomad Visa
The application for a Digital Nomad Visa in Brazil must be filed at the local Brazilian Consulate closest to the foreigner. Once approved, the applicant must attend the Consulate to obtain their visa printed to their passport. This process can take up to a couple of months.
If you have plans to travel to Brazil during this time, you may want to consider applying for a residency permit instead. The application for a Digital Nomad Residence Permit in Brazil is similar to the visa application, but it is done while the applicant is in Brazil.
The applicant should remain in the Brazilian territory until the decision on the permit is released. Once approved, the applicant must attend to the Federal Police precinct to file for the Brazilian ID (RNM).
The Digital Nomad Visa in Brazil provides a great opportunity for individuals who wish to work remotely while experiencing the beauty and culture of this amazing country. It is a viable option for anyone looking to take their career on the road. However, it is important to remember that the visa is only available to those who can prove they have a stable income and are able to support themselves financially.
