Citing data from the Brazilian Ministry of Justice and Public Security, the Observatory reveals that, in 2022, 562 Portuguese entered Brazil.

Of the 25,061 foreigners who entered Brazil last year, Portuguese accounted for 2.2%. In 2013, 4.7% of foreigners who emigrated to Brazil were Portuguese.

According to the Observatory, in 2020 and 2021, less than 500 Portuguese entered Brazil annually, surpassing this threshold in 2022, when 562 Portuguese emigrated to Brazil, i.e. 21.9% more.

“The recessive trend seen in recent years has resulted in a relative loss of importance for Portuguese immigration”, says the Emigration Observatory, which is an independent technical and research structure integrated into the Center for Research and Studies in Sociology (CIES) at Iscte – University Institute of Lisbon.
