Ok, so I wasn't specific enough, I have a friend in Brazil & I have been there 7 times in the last 3 years, but of course this is not enough, so my question is; how can I move to brazil & become a permanent resident?

Boris, you raise an interesting question - If and when I decide to retire to brazil, how would I go about getting the proper visa? A tourist visa wouldn't do, so I guess you need some sort of permanent thing. What hoops do you have to jump through to get that? How long does it take? How much does it cost? Do you have to get those dubious "dispanchantes" involved?

There is a retirement visa available to anyone over 60 with proof of income. Here is a link for more info:

You will have to hire a lawyer, I will ask around about the prices and estimated time.

Brazil tries to be very tight on immigration policy because the country has served as a "hideaway" for criminals for so many decades. But as long as you have plenty of cash they will all turn a blind eye to anything and even that you will attain a much higher social status than Brazilians themselves for being a “gringo”.

Jim, when you find out let me know. I have been asking this question for a couple of years. It seems that if you are not 60+ or filfthy rich it is an impossible dream. PEOPLE, I think he's asking "How does the average American get to live in Brazil??"
Of course, with the economy the way it is and the lack of employment opportunities.. you really need an "inside" connection. I am still looking. boa sorte!
