Cost of Living

Living in Brazil

Brazil, the largest country in South America, is famous for its carnivals, beaches, tropical jungles and exciting cities, and attracts expats from all over the world for these reasons. Immigration from Portugal, Japan and China means that the cities are multicultural and the cuisine is varied. The cost of living in the main cities of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Brasilia, is fairly high but you can expect a decent salary to compensate for this. Locally-produced food is relatively inexpensive, and a variety of fresh seafood is available near the country's long coastline.

Visas and Medical

Visa and work permit requirements vary by country. See http://www.expatarrivals.com/brazil/visas-for-brazil for more information. Public healthcare is of a variable standard, so many expats choose to use private health insurance. Many international schools offer this as part of their package.
