Brazil has moved to re-impose deadlines for applications and petitions that are handled by the Ministry of Labor’s General Coordination of Immigration.

Key Points:

  • In March, Brazil suspended deadlines for immigration filings because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Under a July 8 directive, procedural deadlines for work-related immigration will be enforced again.
  • Additional information is expected soon about what the re-imposition of deadlines will mean for specific applications and petitions under the review of the General Coordination of Immigration.

Analysis & Comments: Employers are encouraged to work closely with Deloitte if they have employees with applications or petitions that are handled by the General Coordination of Immigration. Deloitte will provide additional information as it becomes available.
