I'm relocating from Canada to Brazil to be with my common-law partner, who is Brazilian and is currently there. I would like to take some of our household goods, books and mementos with me when I fly as extra luggage, because it is cheaper than shipping it. I would like to know if I can bring in household goods on a travel visa, as I will be applying for permanent resident status once in Brazil. I have called and emailed the Brazilian Consulate here and have not heard back. Does anyone have experience moving to Brazil under similar circumstances? Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
