    I’m considering a move to Brazil.

    I work for an American company and could work remotely. I have a B.S. in Physics/M.S. in Statistics. I work as a Data Scientist/programmer/quantitative analyst.
    I heard Brazil offers permanent visa to scientist/researchers? Do I qualify?
    Another option, which i would try I avoid, is to form an american company and have my current company pay my new company. Can I then open an office in brazil and hire myself and get a visa?
    Also I’m a PhD “student” at UCLA, can I use that to get a permanent visa as a student? or do i need to do a study abroad to get that visa?
    Any light shed in this manner will help

    Take a look at the website of your consulate/embassy. Tons of information about all kinds of visa.

    Not a whole lot of options outside of getting married or an investment visa.

    ….A Brazilian child, too. The requirement being that one of the parents has to be a Brazilian or, if both parents are foreigners, that the kid is born in Brazil. You can even have this child outside of marriage (although in my case, we were already married for a year by the time we had our first-born).

    So basically a self-employed person cant get a visa in Brazil?

    In other words a person that can come live and spend money in Brazil and help the economy cant get a visa, but someone that could come to Brazil and take a Brazilian job can. Alrighty!!!!

    I’m considered a “self-employed” person but I was invited to join a company as a partner. Perhaps you can look for someone to work with who would be interested in working with you.

    Yes, just as it is in the USA. You know, for a guy who claims to be so well qualified you don’t seem to know much about how the world goes around. Why don’t you look at other countries that have a points-based visa system for the highly skilled or talented?

    have you seen Uruguay?

    Each country is different and sometimes they are loop holes so I’m trying to double check if my understanding is correct or not.

    I know in many western countries they’re meet-up for start-ups and small companies to collaborate and build a network. Do you know of such events in Brazil?

    Unfortunately no. I was asked to join based on my unique biotech experience. Why not search companies on-line based on your business field and when you contact ones of interest, place emphasis on your unique experiences or talent. That is what will help you get hired and get the visa. It’s a long shot but I think is worth looking into.
