A new service order released by the Ministry of Labor will now allow Brazilian intermediary companies to apply for a technical visa work authorization for foreign workers who provide technical assistance or technology transfer.  The current system only allowed companies that were listed on the Technical Services Agreement or were part of the same corporate group to apply for a technical visa work authorization for foreign nationals.  The contract must still be registered with the National Institute of Industrial Property before applying for the visa.
