Labour market access

On 20 January 2013, the Brazilian Ministry of Labor and Employment announced that dependents of foreign workers under local contracts were made eligible to apply for work authorization.
Before this new measure, the employment visa under a local contract was the only work authorization category for foreign workers, and dependent visa holders were not eligible to work in the country.
