Portuguese inflows into Brazil remain below 1,000 in 2017

In 2017, 601 Portuguese entered Brazil, according to data from the Brazilian Ministry of Justice and Public Security. That ministry accounted for a total of 25,937 entries of foreigners in Brazil, with the Portuguese accounting for 2.3% of this total. +

Between 2004 and 2013, the trend was towards an increase in the number of Portuguese arriving in Brazil, except for a small decrease in 2006. Between 2010 and 2013 there was even an exponential increase in Portuguese emigration to this country, with the maximum value of the series under analysis having been reached in that last year: 2,904 entries. In 2014 there was a reversal of the trend, considerably reducing the number of inflows. This regressive trend continued until 2017, with the value of Portuguese inflows being lower than those recorded in the last nine years.
