I'm currently living in Toronto, Canada. I have an opportunity to work in another country so far my choices have been Australia, Brasil and Venezuela. I'm leaning towards brasil because it seems they have a rich culture and I'm orginally from South American (Guyana). My question is does anyone know how hard it is to get a work visa for Brasil? I'd get a job through my Company.

Your company needs to send an application to the Labour bureau (Ministerio de trabalho) they need to explain why they are going to send you there, and you need to send a copy of your diploma if you possess a degree, otherwise you need to show some proof that you have at least 3 years in this field, you also need to demonstrate that you will earn more in Brazil than what you earnt in your former country, and your enterprise has to assume full responsibility for you, pay the rent and your medical insurance.

Good luck!

I worked a contract job in Brazil in the 1990s for a year (telecom network engineering). Most large foreign companies that make large investments in Brazil are allowed to bring in limited numbers of key technical and management people from their home country. These are people that already know the business operations and are needed to get the new operation off the ground and keep it running. This means that the vast majority of people at most foreign owned companies in Brazil get hired from the labor force in Brazil.

Brazilian owned companies are allowed to bring in contract workers for specific time periods (1 year, 2 years) to perform critical skilled jobs that cannot be filled by domestic hiring. The company that is bringing the foreign worker into the country pays the visa fees and provides all the necessary documentation. A really good company does everything for the employee and saves the employee from getting into any red tape with the consulate.
