Long haul shipping, if you want to move your household items. This tends to be either slow and not very cheap, or reasonably fast and quite expensive. Typically, these services would be paid for by your employer. One company that does long haul shipping (and which I've used in the past, with satisfaction) is http://www.go2uti.com. If you just want to move ...

It's definitely possible - I'm Polish and I moved to Brazil last year, but you'll need a lot of patience and strong will :) I also have a Belgian guy in my company and his experience was similar. To get a temporary working visa for 2 years (Visto Temporario V), probably the only one you can get you need to have work permit from Ministry of Work. After 2 ...

Also this Consulate's website (Houston in particular, but ...

There's nothing illegal about exchanging money with a friend. Similar arrangements can be used for money laundering which is illegal, but these are often more complex - and your arrangement is rather simple, above board, regular, and traceable. Not related to the legality at all, I would just make sure that you are both getting a decent exchange rate, and ...

As Bolivia is not yet a member of Mercosul, there are no differences from any other nation for immigration, as far as I know. The usual way is to go to Brazil with a tourist visa (usually lasts for 3 months, can be renewed for more 3) and look for a job there. With some luck, if you find a job, the hiring company can start the process with the Ministry of ...

One solution may be to request a VIPER (VIsto PERmanente, Permanent Visa) (which at first is actually issued for 2 years, after that time you need to apply again to make it properly permanent). It seems to be a lot of hassle though, including transferring some amount of money to a Brazilian account every month, getting an RNE (Brazilian foreigner ID). ...

If you are a foreign national who does not live in the Mercosul area (which is your case) and you are going to stay temporarily in Brazil, you can bring your car. But you will have to declare it to the Brazilian Revenue Service under the "special regime for temporary admission".

According to Brazilian Nationality Law, the easiest way is to figure out how to live there for at least four years, learn Portuguese, and don't get (or already have) any criminal convictions. After that, you can apply for Brazilian citizenship and come and go as you please. If you find a Brazilian partner and marry, or have a Brazilian child, then the time ...

The law has not changed. It is essentially impossible for a UK resident, citizen or otherwise, to bring over a relative other than a minor (under 18) child or spouse. The lawyer you spoke to advised you correctly. If your sister is not already a graduate, the best option for your sister to come to the UK is to study at a UK university. She would need to pay ...

This link is probably helpful. To summarize: The spouse of a Canadian citizen has to follow exactly the same rules to become a citizen as anyone else (for example, live in Canada for long enough). Note that this is unlike (e.g.) Germany, where the spouse of citizen can naturalize much faster than other people. A Canadian citizen can sponsor their spouse ...

If you filled your tax in the computer you can try to find a copy in the computer itself. Take a photo id with you and head to the ...
