Brazil is super big and diverse, so are the job opportunities and range of salaries. Your chances of landing a good job and good salary will depend on many factors: Residency Status, Portuguese language proficiency and level of education and work experience. With the first 2 being the most important but most important is the your residency status.
In my search for jobs here, I personally came to the realization that the top paid English speaking jobs first and foremost require nothing less than a PERMANENT RESIDENCY which you automatically qualify for by giving birth here.
Self employment is also big here. With a population of over 200 million, your creativity is your limit. Self employment opportunities can range from selling petty things on the street, teaching English to a multimillion company establishment and anything in between.
There are many residency status here with Permanent being the highest. Let me simply say, the higher your residency status, the better chance you have. This is because the Brazilian bureaucracy can be a nightmare and no company wants to go through a nightmare just to employ someone when there is a pool of over 200 million people that can fill in the position.
Hope this is helpful.

Aww i can feel your pride from here. Pls how much must one have in the bank to go to Brazil. Im planning my next baby so i want to plan well. I already have a place to stay so just need to know all the steps and cost implication. Must i receive an invitation before i apply for the visa?
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 4:59pm On Aug 09|
It’s good to plan ahead. All the best.
No you do not necessarily need an invitation letter to apply for the visa. In fact i got my visa without an invitation but again, i have a lot of travel history to other countries as a tourist. Depending on your travel history, you may want to apply with an invitation letter to convince the consulate on your purpose of travel. Just note that the history and residency status of the person inviting you is very important in using an invitation letter.
For example, getting an invitation from a friend who got his or her residency through seeking asylum may raise red flags with the visa officer. They may think you are traveling to Brazil to do same. Please note that some asylum seekers have genuine reasons for seeking asylum so I’m not trying to generalize here.
Your main expenses ones in Brazil will be Accomodation and hospital fees. For birthing cost, it varies from absolutely free for public hospitals to between 2,000- 5,000 USD for a private hospital. Please note that public hospitals are financed by taxpayers money. Your choice of hospital is on you. I am just providing the info. I personally will not judge you on your choice of hospital and your baby will be Brazilian wether you gave birth in a public, private hospital or at home in Brazil.
For food, it all depends on you. A budget of 150-300 USD should be fine both 2 people provided you don’t go round looking for expensive Nigerian food lol.
Have about 300-700 USD for total costs of documents for baby passport and permanent residency application for both parents.
Hope this was helpful. Thanks

So I got into Brazil last night and I must say that the people are very friendly especially at the airport in São Paulo. You’ll always find someone who speaks English there and willing to help. I was worried about racism and so far I have experienced none despite the fact that 99 percent of people I have seen and related with are white.
In Rio however, it’s difficult to communicate with people except the hotel attendants. I had a difficult time trying to make purchases at the supermarkets. No one speaks English and the labels and instructions are all written in portugese. I’m not someone who likes to try new food so eating has been somewhat difficult for me also
I’m only in Rio for few days and still trying to decide between Sao Paulo and Florianópolis. Please I’ll need suggestions on safe and affordable areas in São Paulo.
There were Nigerians in the flight to São Paulo, about 4 of them speaking Yoruba. I spoke with one when we landed, asked him a few questions but missed him in the process of finding my next flight (which was difficult because the airport is so big)

I am soo happy for you. You have made it. For accommodation and areas safe and affordable , check Airbnb. They are usually pictures.
I am finally glad to know that people can still make it to Brazil. This is proof that the doors to Brazil have not closed.
Stay safe and may the Lord guide and protect you. Thanks

Ajokeomo:Please I would like to know the length of the tourist visa issued to you.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Samuelsoma: 9:42am On Aug 11|
HI Ajokeomo, big congratulations to you for making it into brazil. Well, in my own opinion I will suggest Florianopolis, cos the hassle of getting your documentations done in florianopolis is very minimal compared to Sao paulo and that is because Sao paulo is more populated that floriano and so you most likely would experience longer queues even at the clinics when you wanna go for your antinatal, and then floriano is safer, infact it is regarded as the safest city in Brazil. So I wish you a good time in brazil be rest assured that you gonna enjoy the country and the people as Brazilians are very friendly with everyone. For accommodation, you can check Airbnb, you sure would get affordable prices at your preferred destination.
Also, pls can you enlighten the house here especially for the sake of those that are planning to also give birth in brazil, how you went about the visa processes if you dont mind pls. Also, pls did you do any pregnancy test at the embassy in Nigeria cos that is one of the fears of people right now. Big congratulations one again Ajokeomo, you are just few steps away from becoming a Brazilian yourself.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by MrBrownJay1(m): 9:39pm On Aug 12|
Even though I don't particularly like Florianópolis, if you are going there and want to have quick expedition with your papers, then it will be easier and way better there than in SP, but then again São Paulo doesn't have a beach and the city can feel too crowded ALL THE TIME.
But i have to ask: why didn't you have Rio as an option?!
As for why I don't particulary like Floripa:
-"colder" weather during winter (aka right now). You may need to get warmer clothing, while in the north, you will never wear a jacket, for example.
- the island get deserted in the winter and in the summer it gets crowded as fukc
- as much as I love Argentine people, Floripa and Camboriu is their favourite destination in Brazil...thus the place gets filled up with people from Argentina. I think that's one of the few places in the south if Brasil where most people woriking there actually speak Spanish
- the most south you go in Brasil, the "whither" it gets.
- difficult to meet locals during the summer months as so many people there are foreigners
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Ajokeomo: 9:44am On Aug 13|
Thank you and God bless you for your help so far on this thread.

|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Samuelsoma: 9:54am On Aug 13|
AJokeomo, pls how long did it take you to get the visa after you submitted your application? A pregnant lady in Nigeria wanna apply now and she needs to know how long it now takes as rules and processes keeps changing and we dont really know the leatest now,
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Ajokeomo: 9:55am On Aug 13|
Thank you. I read so much about Florianópolis too. Will consider it.
No, I did not do any pregnancy test because I was not showing.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Samuelsoma: 10:00am On Aug 13|
Oh great, I wish you safe stay in Brazil, and thanks for the info too
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Samuelsoma: 10:03am On Aug 13|
Oh really? I thought it use to be one year before, I guess its changed then. Nevertheless, the good thing is that you have entered brazil already every other thing will fall in place, enjoy your stay jare
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Ajokeomo: 10:09am On Aug 13|
Yes, I have heard the same about Floripa here and a lot of people seem to think Sao Paulo is a better option and consider Florianópolis expensive and close to the border.
I’ll check both places out and make a final decision.
Rio is not an option. I have heard they have a high crime rate and very rough. I am currently there and I don’t think I want to stay here. I heard there are more people in Sao Paulo and Floripa who speak English. Nobody does here and I have been using google translate.

My personal view... Baby and your safety and health is most important over anything. A healthy baby is a happy family. Everything depends on the baby at this time including you and the rest of the family obtaining Brazilian citizenship. Based on experience, i will advise you not to think too much of the money. GO TO FLORIPA... safe, clean less crowded health facilities, less busy Police Federal (immigration office), low risk of zika and faster processing of papers.
You are blessed because it is currently low season in Floripa and accommodation is 2 to 3 times cheaper. If your husband is at home, let him send you more money please. São Paulo is not as safe, clean as Floripa and it is very crowded meaning higher chances of diseases and crowded hospitals.
The money will pay for it self my dear. Trust me, the price difference between the 2 cities is not worth the risk. The current cold weather in Floripa is good against mosquitoes which transmit bad diseases. Get an air conditioned room. Avoid going out at night, get some mosquito repellents that are safe for pregnant women. Stay safe.
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by Adjo10: 10:37am On Aug 13|
With the visa, you can stay for 3 months and then extend it in Brazil for another 3 months making 6 months. Cheers
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by peppo4live: 1:11pm On Aug 13|
Congratulations to you...
Please does your application processing take up to 21 working days before getting your visa?
|Re: Giving Birth In Brazil by MrBrownJay1(m): 2:20pm On Aug 13|
In Brasil, nobody speaks English (just rich people or the younger educated generation).... thats a sad reality that you have to get use to, and therefore you need to start learning some portuguese, it will make things MUCH easier for you (especially if you want to meet the"real" locals.Use apps like Duolingo to start from home and then practice in the streets
As much as crime is high in Río, don't expect anything less in São Paulo, I even felt the crime rate was higher there. Floripa is the only place (out of these 3 cities) that would have less crime.... but then again there is crime everywhere in the world, and what you need to do is be careful... and use common sense, don't bring out your fancy IPhone xs acting like a tourist, don't wear fancy jewellery, etc, and you will be ok.
Go to a favela called ROCINHA or VIDIGAL and do a tour there (I forgot the name of the gringo who actually does a fantastic visit to educate people on favela lifestyle) and you will have a great insight of how the majority of Brazilians live. Vidigal is next to the most expensive neighborhood in all brasil....aka Leblon, and right in the middle of Leblon there is a favela there too (that's brasil for you, you are never too far away from the poorest of the city). Favelas are everywhere in Brasil, because this is just a way of Brazilian life. Anybody on a budget should consider them. To give you an idea....min studio apt in fancy area of Rio will cost you 1.5k reais, in a not so fancy area away from zona sul...1k reais, whie a 1 bedroom apt in a favela in zona sul with amazing views overlooking the sea, 600reais.
Many people would tell you to stay away from the favelas but I would say, discover them, get to understand them, go there and see how amazing some of them can be.. It's way cheaper to live there and, as much as there may be issues (like anywhere in brasil), at least you know you will never get robbed while living in a favela (people don't shiit where they eat)
Also, another great area of Rio is Barra de Tijuca aka the Miami of Rio, with its 11km long amazing beach that easily rival Ipanema and Copacabana (and less crowded too).the area is very nice, you don't feel that you are in Río, as this is the new chic area of the city. Cheaper than Leblon/Ipanema/Copacabana and a choice destination for the nouveau rich..... I also hope you got to venture outside Río and had a quick trip to Ilha Grande and/or Buzios (St tropez of Brasil).....About 3 hrs out the city east or west. Rio is great but there is so many places to see outside the city too. Go discover them if you have time. You won't regret it.
Sorry, I am very biased, and just love Rio like that.
