    Expat guide to living and working in Brazil

    Brazil is recognized as one the of the world's emerging markets which has resulted in an increased number of expats choosing the South American country as their adopted country.

    Healthcare is adequate, however the medical care received under their state system Sistema Unico de Saude (SUS) may not be comparable to North American or European standards.

    However, if you're an expat in Brazil, access to these facilities may not be available to you dependent on your tax and residency situation and if you contribute to the SUS. Even if you do have access, you will still be faced with any waiting periods and dealing with the doctors and staff in Portuguese.

    AXA PPP International takes the care of its members very seriously and our expatriate health insurance offers expats in Brazil the choice to receive your treatment there or in your country of nationality.
