As a foreigner living in Sao Paulo, will I have access to public healthcare? What is it like?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Sao Paulo if they have access to public healthcare in Sao Paulo. And, if they do have access, what is it like. They wrote...

"As a foreigner living in Sao Paulo, you will have access to public healthcare through the Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS). The SUS provides free healthcare services to all residents, including foreigners. However, the public healthcare system in Brazil is known for being overcrowded and underfunded, which can result in long waiting times and limited access to specialized treatments. It is recommended that foreigners also consider obtaining private health insurance to ensure access to better quality healthcare services and shorter waiting times," said another expat in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
