Moving Household Goods To Brazil
Sailing to Curitiba, Itajai, Rio Grande, Vitoria, Rio de Janeiro & Santos
When moving to anywhere in Brazil, it is highly recommended that you speak to the Brazil Consulate prior to making the commitment to move. There are a few hoops that you may need to jump through in order to make your move be as successful as possible. House Removals Worldwide has been successfully moving peoples household goods, furniture & personal effects to Curitiba, Itajai, Rio Grande, Vitoria, Rio de Janeiro and Santos for many years now.
It is worth getting any or all documents that you need legalised at the consulate in the UK prior to leaving to live in Brazil. Without these being stamped in the UK, your documents are no use in Brazil (eg birth certificate, driving license, qualifications etc) and you can only get them legalised at the consulate in the UK and not in Brazil. These documents will also then need officially translating into Portuguese once you are in Brazil.
Once you have your paperwork in order and stamped, you will need to complete a full itemised inventory of goods to be shipped. This will need to be sent to a local agent in Brazil for them to check once your goods arrive. You will be required to be present in either Rio de Janeiro, Santos or Montevideo (the port of entry) to clear your goods through customs. In some cases, you will be required to pre-pay any destination fees whilst still in the UK - we will advise costs once we have more information from you, such as quantity, value of goods and final destination in Brazil.
