Staying in Brasil

We are presently in Uruguay, planning to sail northbound to Brasil with our Dutch registered Lagoon 380.
Anyone can tell us how long the boat can stay there free of import duties.

Cheers

re: Staying in Brasil

From Noonsite:

" ... Yachts are permitted to stay a maximum 24 months. A letter of permission is required from the Port Captain and this is usually faxed to The Recita (Customs) who are responsible for enforcing the rule.

The amount of time permitted for crew remains the same as for other tourists (generally 90 days with 90 day extension)..."

Foreign boats are generally allowed a 6-months stay. You can get extensions, as this ancient law is probably meant for ships and does not take the length of the coast in consideration. I stayed for almost 3 years (Canadian registered boat), and found out that different places had different "tolerances". The Southern states are strict, but as you move north to Bahia and beyond, they become more laid back.

There was a discussion of this matter but on a different topic at the "other" forum. Califonia to Brazil. - SailNet Community
