Import duties when moving to Brazil

Customs permits you to import your household goods without paying any duty - and even new items are eligible for duty exemption (1). This is a nice benefit of moving to Brazil, but you will need to follow certain guidelines in order to receive it. First, your shipment should be imported no later than 180 days after you enter the country (though 90 days is better). Second, you must list all new belongings on your inventory, in order to receive duty exemption for them (2).

Import paperwork when moving to Brazil

Among the documents you must provide when your shipment is clearing customs, is a notarized employment contract. You’ll also need either a temporary Work Visa or a permanent Residence Visa. As mentioned above, you must show a comprehensive inventory of all new items - and an inventory of used items is required as well. These forms should be written in Portuguese, and you also must submit your Original Bill of Lading or Air Waybill. Two copies of your RNE (Registro Nacional de Estrangeiros) paperwork are also needed (3).

Duties when importing your vehicle into Brazil

Whether you have a temporary or permanent visa - you’re not permitted to import your vehicle for personal use. This benefit is reserved for diplomats or employees of international organizations like UNESCO (4).

Paperwork when importing your vehicle into Brazil

If it’s possible for your company to import a vehicle on your behalf, or if some other exception is found - you’ll still need some paperwork to proceed. This includes the purchase receipt or invoice for the vehicle and a REDA-E Form. A notarized Power of Attorney, Original Bill of Lading and your passport are also required. Documents showing that you own (or the company you work for owns) the vehicle and a notarized Brazilian tax card should also be provided (5).

This coverage of the duties and documents required when shipping your goods to Brazil isn’t all-encompassing. For this reason, it’s vital that you speak to Brazilian customs, before sending your goods from your country of origin.

Tips on how to make your international move easier

  • Start early: Without a doubt, when there is so much to be done, ample time is required. In fact, you should start preparations about 90 days to the day of moving. This will help you avoid delays and attend to everything needed.
  • Visa and passport: It is important to find out what type of visa you will require. For instance, if you are moving to Brazil for work purposes you will need a work visa. Kindly find more information on how to apply for a visa by visiting the Embassy of Brazil’s website. Also, ensure that you apply for a US passport through the US Government.
  • Buying real estate and acar: Before moving abroad, most people think of acquiring assets such as a house and a car. It is however, advisable to take your time before making such acquisitions. Give yourself time to learn your new home, who the best suppliers are and any such information that will keep you from being ripped off.  So, before you start looking for Brazil International Moving Services, talk to an expert about future acquisitions.
  • Reach out to people: Moving to a new place might be a confusing experience so talk to friends and family who have either been there or live there. You could also join local social media groups and make new friends. Ensure that you get as much information as possible about your preferred location.

Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas

Professional movers come with the required expertise and equipment for the job. Indeed, they will ensure that your valuables are handled with care and see that these get to your new destination safely. If you decide to do it alone, you will experience mental and physical strain. It will also consume a lot of your time and there is the risk of you losing or damaging your belongings.

How to find the best international moving company

When looking for Brazil International Moving Services, begin by searching the internet. Also, ask for recommendations from friends and family members. Next, get a list of a few companies and before you settle for one, kindly consider the following:

  • Ensure that you choose a company that is licensed and has insurance that covers damage on valuables during transit.
  • Read customer reviews on the respective companies’ websites. A company with more negative than positive reviews is, definitely, not a good choice.
  • Compare different estimates and choose a company that is offering you a good service package at the most affordable rate.
  • Settle for a company that has achieved high service standards by attaining accreditations.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
