I would you like to have more information on the economic and political relations between Brazil and other countries, as well as on the Brazilian role in multilateral organizations (such as the United Nations, Mercosur, the WTO). How do I do it?

Presential research only, subjected to scheduling, in accordance with the Access to information Law.
2. I am a journalist and I would like to get information from the Foreign Ministry for an article. What should I do?
The Foreign Ministry counts on a Press Office, which can be contacted by phone at +55 61 2030 8006 / +55 61 2030 8007 / +55 61 2030 6160 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brazilian Embassies and Consulates propose, each year, to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a plan for the dissemination of the Brazilian art and culture abroad. It is suggested to contact the cultural sector of the Representation where you intend to present your work.
Yes. The Rio Branco Institute, in partnership with the National Counsel for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), and with the participation of the Secretary of Policies for Promotion of Racial Equality and of the Palmares Cultural Foundation, keeps, since 2002, the Affirmative Action Program - Vocational Scholarship Award for Diplomacy, with the purpose of providing equal opportunities of access to the diplomatic career to African descents. The program consists of the grant of scholarships, through a selection process, to fund the studies of aspiring diplomats. More information can be found in the Public Notice for the Program. Besides that, since the 2011 edition, the Diplomatic Career Entrance Exam provides for the reservation of 10% of vacancies in the first phase to self-declared African descent candidates.
The Trade Promotion Department publishes on the Brazil Global Net Portal guiding material to Brazilian entrepreneurs seeking to enter the international market. There are two publications available for download: the handbook "Exporting step by step", a guide on the several steps and procedures of the Brazilian Export Process which includes information on international trade, legislation, foreign exchange, taxes, financing, packaging and international shipping; and the "How to Export" series, which gathers information about specific countries or integrated markets.
The Foreign Ministry does not grant scholarships to Brazilians wishing to study abroad. For that, it is recommended to contact specialized agencies, such as CAPES (Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Education Personnel) or CNPq (National Counsel for Scientific and Technological Development), including in what concerns the "Science Without Borders" Program. It should be noted that some foreign governments regularly award scholarships (applicable to Brazilian students) to which Brazilian students can apply. Further information can be obtained on the webpage of the Division for Educational Themes of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The Foreign Ministry supports undergraduate and postgraduate scholarship programs for foreigners, coordinated by the Ministry of Education and by the Ministry of Science and Technology. To find out if your country is contemplated by the scholarship program, contact the Brazilian Embassy in your country. Contact details are available on this Portal, in the section "Representations".
It is necessary to contact each Embassy or Consulate, for example, through their websites, in order to check on the possibility of visits. Since Embassies and Consulates are public offices, the use of their facilities by visitors is not allowed.
The legal status of foreigners in Brazil is regulated by Law nº 13.445/2017, known as immigration law.
The legal stay in Brazil depends on several circumstances. For more information, it is recommended to contact the nearest Brazilian Consular Representation.
