In a bid to encourage activities by the so-called digital nomads in Brazil, the country’s National Immigration Council, of the Ministry of Justice and Public Security, regulated the granting of temporary visas and residence permits so that immigrants may work for foreign employers while staying in Brazil, with no formal employment registered in the country.

The measure was published Monday (Jan. 24) and sets an initial one-year period of residence, which may be renewed for another one year.
The rules, said National Justice Secretary José Vicente Santini, are in line with the global trend and also help boost tourism. “The remuneration of digital nomads stems from a source overseas, and the funds brought over by these immigrants warm up the Brazilian economy. This is an important step for Brazil in the promotion of one of the most modern labor models,” he stated.

What to do

Demonstrating digital nomad conditions must include presenting a work or service contract, among other documents outlining labor relations with the foreign employer. Also necessary is proving one has enough means to live in Brazil.
