First, non-residents must obtain a residence visa through the Brazilian embassy or consulate in their home country to establish legal residency in Brazil. Once the residency visa is secured, proceed to select a suitable bank in Brazil that aligns with the company’s banking needs. It is imperative to choose a reputable bank that offers reliable services and has a strong track record. You may also consider seeking assistance from a reliable service provider like AsiaBC to obtain the visa and receive recommendations for the selected banks as part of our Brazil company registration services.
Upon choosing the bank, ensure to gather the essential documentation, including a valid passport, proof of address, and relevant company incorporation documents, for the account opening process. Once these documents are assembled, make contact with the selected bank to arrange an appointment, during which a bank representative will guide you through the necessary procedures and provide you with the required forms.
A crucial step is completing due diligence, which entails providing the bank with comprehensive information about the company’s activities, funds source, and ownership structure. It is of utmost importance to cooperate fully and ensure the accuracy of the information provided to meet the specific requirements of the bank.
Once the bank account application is approved, the final step is to make an initial deposit to activate the account, with the required amount varying according to the bank’s policies.
