If and when you get by the visa and Portuguese barriers, you need to look seriously at how you will support yourself.
In my opinion, the service sector is the least difficult to break into and requires the least capital.
- you don’t know the system
- the bureaucracy is against you at every turn
- you must have trusted friends or family to help you
- there are many well-qualified Brazilians who will be your competition
- you are mostly likely not the first person to have your ‘get rich’ idea.
- in the end, can you implement, bring a project online, make it happen?
You are starting Brazil 101….easy to fail…..to get an A is very difficult. Will repeat what Jobim said “Brazil is not for beginners!”. Therefore, get your Tourist Visa, come down for as long as you can, put yourself on a budget that would be comparable to what you think you would be able to earn in Brazil. If that shows you can’t make in Brazil based on your lifestyle, then forget moving here. Save up and come on vacations for the next 20 years!
