More Brazilian Visa Applicants Good for Sarasota-Bradenton

Posted: April 18th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Investor Visas, Sarasota Immigrants | Tags: , , , , , | No Comments »

The United States Diplomatic Mission to Brazil processed 115,269 visa applications in March 2012, a 62% increase over the same month last year.

Why is this good for Sarasota-Bradenton?

Reports from local realtors and the press give the impression that many of the Brazilian visa recipients are visiting the Sarasota-Bradenton area.  With the booming Brazilian economy, many people from that country are looking for places to invest their wealth.  Brazilians are largely credited with turning the Miami condominium market around.  The same could happen on the Gulf Coast.
