Hello all (or, judging by the lack of posts...few). My name is Brian and I am here to find out more information about moving to Brazil, mainly Curitiba.
My first question is: How can I MOVE there? I read about travel visas, but I really want to live, work, and make a life there. How can I get a visa that allows me to live there and, possibly, even gain dual citizenship. Any of you have experience with this?
I know sometimes they will let you into the country if you have special skills, so here's mine. I'm a recent college graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Entrepreneurship (basically, anything to do with business). I am also a State of Texas and National Registry Certified EMT-Basic and, by the time I move to Curitiba, I will be a State of Texas certified Fire Fighter. Think any of these will help me or that I might have opportunities in Brazil with this background?
I do not know Portuguese yet, but I have about 10 months to work on it and a roommate that needs to learn it as well, so, hopefully, I should be able to at least get by when I move there.
Anyway, I have a million other questions and really don't want to bombard everyone. Any help is greatly appreciated and I thank you for your time.
