The New Migration Law and the Investor in Brazil
The New Migration Law in Brazil (Legislation N. 13445/2017) gives special attention to foreign investors. Under Article 14 (h), the law determines the possibility of granting of temporary visa for realization of foreign direct investments. Likewise, the Brazilian residence permit, under Article 30 (h), can be granted to foreign investors. In Article 14.9, Brazil adopts an international position for the definition of foreign direct investments as it highlights that a visa can be granted to the foreign investor that makes inflows in projects that have potential to generate jobs and income in the country.
