Brazil to begin issuing new visa and residence permits for nationals of Community of Portuguese Language Countries

Effective 2 October 2023, Brazil will begin issuing new visas and residence permits specifically for nationals of Member states of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries ("CPLP nationals"). CPLP Residence Visas will be available to highly qualified technicians, businesspeople and researchers, among others, from CPLP Member States and remain valid for one year. Applications for these visas will be accepted exclusively at Brazilian embassies and consulates in Angola, Cape Verde, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Portugal. Upon arrival in Brazil using a CPLP Residence Visa, the visa holder will be required to register with the Federal Police within 90 days of arrival.
