Less than 500 Portuguese entries in Brazil in 2021
Inês Vidigal
In 2021, 461 Portuguese entered Brazil, according to data from the Brazilian Ministry of Justice and Public Security. This ministry accounted for a total of 22,719 foreigners entering Brazil, with the Portuguese accounting for 2% of this total. +

After in 2020, the Portuguese arrivals in Brazil reached the minimum value of the entire series under analysis, in 2021 it increases 5%, remaining, however, below 500 annual entries. The number of Portuguese citizens entering Brazil is still far from the figure recorded in 2013: 2,904, the highest in the period under review. The recessive trend in recent years has translated into a relative loss of importance of Portuguese immigration: while in 2013 the Portuguese accounted for 4.7% of the inflows to Brazil, in 2021 they represented only 2%.
