To all: I am seriously considering moving to Brazil Sao Paolo, or Rio wherever the work is I have applied for transfers through our corporation, as well as applied at others.I will be alone as I have been for the last 6 years I am now in P.S., California. And I have nothing holding me back I need to know about bringing my Cat will that be an issue?. Also has anyone brought any vehicles I have a 2014 Mustang, as well as a 2002 Harley DavidsonI would appreciate any and all information on the process I have had this thought in my mind for over 2 years now but now it’s time to get the ball rolling, as well as I need a change I’m looking forward to living out the rest of my life in the Southern Hemisphere, Thank You

You will drive a one liter death trap Fiat uno mille and have a leg amputated if you ride a Honda 100. The proceeds from the sale of your US vehicles will buy crap in Brazil. If you buy anything nice you are a kidnap target or worse.

Dude I can get the same results by going through South Central LA, or through Boyle Heights (East Los), which is where I grew up I am Latino, or in ANY major city Harlem, ST. Louis, Detroit, the list goes on… So how’s about something more on the positive side don’t need to hear statistics!!

Life in Brazil is not easy! Although I am lucky cause my passive income supports me and my wife, I would not live here if I had to do it all over again. Why? Very simple, COL and QOL. But I enjoy life because I live on the beach in Olinda with a crazy pretty wife the locals like to call her Popozuda.Boa sorte e vai feliz.

dude. south central, harlem, detroit . . . they’re not sao paulo or rio. some posters here may have a knack for hyperbole, but if you come on the site asking for advice, then immediately dismiss what’s being said, like you already know what’s going on, you’re off to a bad start.
i’ve been coming here for 20 years, and it wasn’t till i lived here that my eyes started opening. now that i look back on my time in l.a., a walk though south central in the middle of the night would be a walk in the park compared to rio. what i’ve learned is that i still know next to nothing. but the idea of bringing a mustang and a harley here . . . all kinds of trouble.
respectfully suggest you read, listen, take everything with a grain of salt, but believe that folks here probably know a bit more than you. otherwise, you wouldn’t have posted, right? or don’t listen, c’mon down and have at it. you’ve picked two of the most challenging spots to start, especially if you believe ‘you bad’ and already have seen it all. the trip can be worth it, or i wouldn’t be here, but not if you’re trippin’.

This, a thousand times this.
And to expand: Don’t bring cars. In most cases, you simply can’t. And in the few cases where you actually can, the cost (mostly in taxes) is simply not worth it. Sell what you have and then buy something else locally.
If you’re OK with paying twice or three times as much as in the States, you can get good cars here — Jaguars, Volvos, Mercedes — but only get those if you live in a neighborhood where they don’t look too out of place.

Don’t ask questions you don’t want to hear the answer to. He is right. I will pretend for a minute I don’t think you are a troll and say to you: wake up to reality. Do some research on this place. If you think he was being negative than you know nothing about Brazil.
