As Brazil's economy continues to grow, so does its allure to immigrants. Expect to meet many fellow expats when you move to Brazil. Although English is spoken in the country, you'll find that you'll adjust more quickly to life in Brazil if you learn to speak Portuguese. Health care is free and public transport is efficient. The culture is lively and colourful and the people are known for being warm and friendly. There are also plenty of spectacular sights to enjoy.
When you move to Brazil, make sure to choose the right shipping container for transporting your possessions. If your belongings can fit into a 3-bedroom house, you should opt for a 20-foot container. If you're taking a car with you, you should go for a 40-foot container. A 40-foot container is also suitable for the contents of a 4- or 5-bedroom house.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
