IMPACT – HIGH
What is the change? A government decree published in the Official Gazette last Wednesday significantly changes work permit procedures under Brazilian immigration law, simplifies application procedures and makes other improvements to reduce the bureaucracy for companies seeking to hire foreign professionals.
What does the change mean? These changes will improve the processing of work visas and bring clarity to certain issues that were not fully addressed previously by the Immigration Law.
Key changes contained in Decree 8757 are summarized here:
BAL Analysis: The decree is a welcome development and provides a number of improvements that should streamline procedures, reduce processing times, and provide greater flexibility to Brazilian employers seeking to sponsor or retain foreign workers. BAL is following these developments and will report additional information as it becomes available.
