What do I need to know about living in Brasilia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Brasilia, they said:

"Before retiring in Brasilia, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, Portuguese, as it is the official language of the country. Additionally, expats should research the cost of living in Brasilia, as it is higher than other parts of Brazil. It is also important to understand the healthcare system in Brazil, as expats may need to purchase private health insurance. Additionally, expats should research the visa requirements for living in Brazil, as they may need to apply for a permanent residency visa. Finally, expats should research the cultural norms and customs of the region, as they may be different from their home country," said one expat who made the move to Brasilia.
