Default The name's Bond

Premium Bond.



Hi! My name's Richard and I joined the site last week. I am from Wolverhampton (no commiserations required) and have been living in Portland, Oregon, USA since 2004. I joined the site because I am seriously looking at moving to Sao Paulo, Brazil mainly because my romantic partner is living and working there.

Our deal is not straight-forward (is anybody's?). She is a US citizen, I am a British citizen with a U.S. green card (permanent resident card). She has got her job in Sao Paulo because her post is with the U.S. govt. She is classified as a diplomat (not a full diplomat who gets all sorts of immunity, etc).

So that's my intro. Any offers of help or advice greatfully received!

Welcome aboard commander.
Your visa situation for Brazil promises to be interesting. Did you have a particular question?

Rich, Just Rich.

Hello Richard and a warm from t'other side of the world.

I see you've found the Central and South American section of this forum. That's the best place for any questions.

All the best with your plans

Thanks for the welcomes!

Oh I have so many questions I know, enough to drive you all potty.

Might as well be direct (it saves time doesn't it?).

How do I go about getting authorisation to work in Brazil and NOT be married (to her)? I don't wish to marry for the sake of expediting this process at all, even though things are very rosy between us (obviously as I am moving and making such a big step/commitment).

So that would be my primary and biggest question. As a UK Citizen, hold a US Green card (whatever advantage that holds or doesn't I don't know), what must I do to get work authorisation? I know employers there will want a CPF (don't know what it stands for but seems to be equivalent of British National Insurance number?), and I can't get a CPF until I'm 'legal'.

Thanks!

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
