Hi. I am thinking about moving to Brazil from Aberdeen - UK. The plan is to live in Brazil but work remotely for employer based in UK. Since I will be living there on tourist visa. Will I be subject to double taxation?

DOUBTFUL
Choose your destination carefully that includes fast internet and is safe. 6 months with maybe an extension, find a girlfriend and you can stay longer.
So many other Countries you can do the same with less risk ; Costa Rica, Panama, Canada, Portugal, etc.

Hello!

As a tourist, you are allowed to stay for up to 90 days per visit to Brazil and a total of 180 days per year in the country. But there are a couple of permanent residency visa options that may interest you.

Please get in touch with me and I will explain. There is a lot of info you should get to help you plan.

Bye for now,
Margaret Arlington

Used to be 3 months with extension, This is no longer possible for me since I am not UK national but Slovenian, so I'm only allowed to stay 90 days no extension is possible it sucks.

What part of Brazil are you moving to, I am from Edinburgh and travel to Brazil twice a year, its a beautiful country but be careful.

You will need to apply for certain forms and that is not an easy task, its a three month Visa then you have to apply to federal police to extend your Visa to the six month.

Marry the first Brasilian you meet, or have a child with any woman you meet there. (Assuming you're Male)
If not, reverse instructions, add money and shake.

Only permanent residents are subject to double taxation. However, I don't think that you can live in Brazil year-round on a tourist visa. I am an American with a ten-year tourist visa. However, I can stay in Brazil for only 3 months at a time and only for a total of 6 months per year.

Go to the Brazilian consulate that is closest to where you are presently living. They will have all the information on permanent visas. Consulates in several cities also have websites with this information.

You can stay continuously for 6 month but have to go to federal police to renew everything 3 months. The you have to leave for 6 months. Just wanted to clarify.

I am a Swiss national If I clearly understand the tourist visa issue they will give me when I enter Brazil first 3 months Before the 3 months expire I will have to apply with the Federal Police for a 3 months extension Before the 3 months extension expires I will have to leave abroad and after 6 months abroad I will be able to enter Brazil again and they will give me another 3 months visa which can be extended again for 3 months Is this correct ? I just want to confirm

In some cases people have overstayed their 6 months in Brasil and have been fined by the FP.
Nothing horrible happened. That is reality.
IF you find a girlfriend, maybe you can extend due to being in a relationship.
The Federal Police offices who deal with visas ARE YOUR FRIENDs and will help you as much as they can. They usually have offices in many International airports.
Visit a BR embassy website.

Good afternoon, ma'am! in any case will have to pay a higher and higher taxation than the breasileiros who work in Brazil. but you may not be worried that this is happening today in everyone. anyone who comes from abroad to work in another country always pays taxation more than nationals.

How much would the fine for overstaying amount to ? I guess it depends on how many days/months you would overstay Do you have any idea about that ?

Believe the person overstayed their visa a couple months and paid something like R$250
Try going to Gringoes.com and search their forums there, believe I saw it there.
If you are having a relationship in Brasil I suggest you contact the Federal Police before your time is up and ask them if you can extend.
The FP have always been super helpful to me.

Dear Mr. Milenkom,

now you can go to Brazil without a visa, because for citizens and those who have a permanent residence in the United Kingdom can come to Brazil without a visa. But if you want to go there to live, in this case you should be interested in making a record in the migration police of the place where you will live in order to have a temporary visa for the time that you will live there. But in Brazil there is a lot of bureaucracy and so I would advise you to direct a lawyer that would solve this situation for you faster and without gyrating your nerves and time in vain
