The work permit for artists and DJs shall basically depend on the evidence of the foreign petitioner’s qualification and experience and on the documents of the hiring company.

This type of visa allows foreign artists to come to Brazil to perform at specific and determined events, as individuals not subject to an employment relationship with an employer in Brazil. This visa also applies to the technicians for entertainment shows and other professionals involved with the activity of the artist.

Participants in artistic competitions who might not receive remuneration or fee paid by a Brazilian source, even competing for prizes (cash or not) should request a tourist visa rather than this type of visa at the nearest Brazilian Consulate abroad.

Submission of an agreement is required, entered into between the artist and the Brazilian corporate entity that calls the foreigner to Brazil. The agreement must contain, among other items: the duration period; the purpose of the agreement with definitions of the respective obligations; data about the show, posters, printed materials and programs; a listing of the group members, if any,  showing name, nationality, passport number, the Government that issued the passport, the validity of the passport and the job to be performed.
