UK In Brazil?

Brazilian’s love their Blogs.

If they go to the UK there is bound to be a colony of Brazilians around just waiting to meet up with them

USA has a HUGE Brazilian population so there is never any trouble meeting one!

But for us? Nothing. When I came to Brazil I looked everywhere, Nada.

So here’s your chance! Post an ‘Ad’ and lets bring the UK’s in Brazil together!

    Hi Chris, not Brit and not in country, but considering relocating. I’m Yank and my friend is in Brasilia. Right now he’s trying to get a U S visa to join me here (here being New Orleans). The U.S. being what it is at present re visas, the possibility is that it will be much easier for me to go to him rather than the reverse since I am the one with financial resources. Those resources and my friend’s native Portuguese and local knowledge should be ample for us to live comfortably anywhere in Brazil, assuming of course Brazil will have me. His family is in Brasilia, so if I relocate that’s probably where we will live initially, renting a flat, but Brazil is a big place and where we end up is crystal ball work. At any rate these are early days but I thought I would write you and hopefully expand a social network in the event I find myself an ex-pat in similar circumstances in the near future. Btw I’m probably a good bit older than you, but if you would like for us to get to know each other let me know.

      Hey George,
      Well i admit that when looking into the situation of here, or, in the UK, the choice was made because of the Visa situation for me too. We hadn’t been together for more than 2 years, and the UK wont even entertain the thought of a Visa unless you are applying for a student visa. So i came to Brazil.
      Although we experienced some stressful times getting the Visa towards the end, the stress came mainly because my tourist visa was soon to expire, and although the police here literally offered for me to stay illegally, i didnt want this because i have a working visa for cruise ships which i didnt want to risk loosing.
      Looking back on the process of stable union, it was really quite easy. Everything you need to get is realistic, and there is no stipulation of how long you need to be together.
      As you may have read, after i submitted the documents i am now on a visa until they make a decision, which we hear can take up to 2 years, so I’m safe at least until them! I can’t comment on Brasillia, but i have heard there is plenty going on there, opposed to this small, quite boring city. We are looking to re-locate after chrsitmas somewhere more exciting!
      In response to my age, I’m 22, but it really has no matter to me how old you are! Experiences are they key here!
      Would be great to keep in touch, and i wish you the best of luck. Let me know of what you decide, and Merry Christmas

    Hello again Chris, I guess it’s kinda sad we both are sitting here with our computers on Christmas day, but one plays the hand one’s dealt and tomorrow’s another day. Glad to hear back from you so quickly at any rate. If experience is key then I suppose I have a pocket full. Until recently I was sailing a sixteen meter yacht trans-Atlantic and met my Brazilian friend in Portugal. Interesting story there and if you would like to hear about it all email me at I’m in my sixties so I was right about our age difference, but I’m getting used to that since damn near everybody is younger than me, though believe it or not, that was not always the case and I’m still trying to adjust to the idea. Apparently from your post we have sea duty in common at least, and I did live in London some years ago, never mind how many years ago. After living on the yacht for some three years I recently sold her and now am beginning a new chapter. One of the things which bothers me a little about moving to Brazil is the fact that on returning to the States I bought a very nice BMW and have no idea what it takes to bring it with me, having been informed having a car is almost a necessity for living in Brazil comfortably. I guess necessity is a pretty strong word, but it really is a sweet ride and don’t suppose I could easily replace it once there. Really though, write me back at my email address and lets see what we have to talk about. Take care,

    Hi Chris, good evening.
    It’s for love and then for work, I’ve been doing a lot of networking online via LinkedIn and Facebook, my partner has recently moved back to Sao Paulo after 11 years away, we have been together for just over a year now and I’m researching all the options available to me, I’m studying TEFL and learning Portuguese at the moment and when finances allow it, I will go there first of all on holiday to make sure it’s the right decision, as I’ll be leaving behind family friends and more importantly my 6 year old son who lives with his mother.

    So as you can see it’s a big move and need to make sure that everything goes as smooth as it possible can do.

    Many thanks for your reply mate, speak soon.

    Hi I am Belgian girl of 30 years old. As all of you I am searching my way to be together with my boyfriend again. We are more then 2 years together and it becomes time that we live at the same place.
    We decided to try to have the uniao estavel. But a lot of people already told me that it is very difficult or almost impossible. Here I see that you also gave up..
    What I don’t understand is that you need some papers that are older then one year..what kind of papers are that? But you also can stay just 3 or 6 months legally in Brazil as a tourist..I am really confused about this..
    Is there somebody who can explain me this? Because I am thinking to go there next year in March to try to stay there and maybe in September, so in 2 months, to visit one more time. But maybe I should arrange already some papers in September if they need to be older then one year.

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Maggie,

      Well actually, we’re about to start the whole process again.

      Your correct. You can go to Brazil as a tourist for 3 months, after this you then need to go to the Federal and request to stay another 3 months. This was easy – But you can not work.

      The documents we needed for over one year we now have. What we done, is when they gave me my paper for a temporary permenant residency I applied for a bank account, joint. This is now over one year old.

      After leaving Brazil i later found out that another option is to get married in front of a judge, and this paper of over 1 year is not required.

      Also remember – You can stay in Brazil ”Irregually” if you wanted. This means that it is technically illegal, but they don’t really care

      Keep in touch!
