BRAZIL - PROINDE PRACTICAL GUIDANCE ON IMMIGRATION CONTROLS ON SEAFARERS IN BRAZIL (UPDATE 19/4/2018 )

SAPIC Member Proinde advises on the practical guide the recent changes on Brazilian Migration policies when «In November 2017, the new Brazilian Migration Law came into force to replace the obsolete Alien’s Statute and embrace the fundamental principles and guarantees that are already enshrined in the Federal Constitution that succeeded the military period, including the promotion of human rights, repudiation of racism and discrimination, equal rights and free access to public services and social benefits to Brazilians and foreigners, along with reduction of bureaucracy» to conclude that « the novelties introduced by the new regulatory framework are predominantly positive for the maritime and offshore industry, as it clarified specific issues that were in grey areas under the previous legislation». However. the Correspondent considers that «there are still some issues that need to be addressed and new procedures implemented through normative resolutions and other administrative acts from the relevant
authorities».
