Working LEGALLY In Brazil

To work Legally in Brazil it is important that you apply for your ‘carteira de trabalho.’

You can only apply for this if you have a Visa OR Proto-call number.

Make your way to the ‘ministerio do trabalho,’ with the following documents –

  • Proto-call card (number)
  • Letter which accompanies the Proto-call card
  • Passport
  • CPF
  • Proof of Residency

After waiting in the ministerio do trabalho to be seen, you will hand over your documents, take a picture (which you can smile on YAY!) give some finger prints, and finally a signature.

After about 1 week, your book will be ready to collect!

When collecting your book, mention you are a foreigner. I didn’t and the woman was confused as she couldn’t find my book in the normal pile!

Once you have your book, your ready to work LEGALLY In Brazil!
