The country we are featuring today has appeared on the pages of SMC quite a lot lately…

Because it pretty much has it all.

Not every place can brag about its jungles and never-ending beaches the way Brazil can. It is home to the world’s largest rainforest, the Amazon, and to the world’s most famous beach, Copacabana.

It’s also home to the world’s most renowned eye-candy festival — the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. 

Brazil is a diverse country on many fronts, and, luckily for you, this also includes the various residency programs that it offers to qualifying foreigners. 

If you can prove that you’re retired and receiving at least $2,000 in monthly (qualifying) income, you can apply for the Brazilian Retirement Visa.

And the best thing about this visa category — unlike with the Brazilian Digital Nomad Visa, which we covered recently – it leads to citizenship

Initially, you get a temporary residency, which is valid for two years. Two years later, you can convert it to permanent residency. And, after four more years of holding permanent residency (for a total of six years), you will become eligible to apply for naturalization in Brazil.

If you are a retiree looking for a change of scenery, then Brazil is definitely a country to consider.
