Worrying about the nitty-gritty aspects of the big move? There is a lot to think about when relocating to Brazil. On top of the language barriers expats may face, they have to deal with finding suitable accommodation, schools and work opportunities, and, without any personal contacts in the area, even finding the best grocery store or local cafe could prove tricky.
While removals companies purely help transport goods, relocation companies offer a full suite of services guaranteed to ease the move for corporations and individuals. Assistance from these companies encompasses everything from pre-departure orientation and immigration admin to neighbourhood orientation and lease negotiations, as well as school selections.
Here is a list of companies, local, regional and international, that expats moving to Brazil should consider.
