National Migrant Registration (RNM)

 

Immigrant Support


This page is dedicated to foreign students, professors and researchers at UFSC who need to register, renew or change their National Migrant Registration (RNM).

SINTER has an immigrant support service that assists foreign visitors with the migrant registration and renewal processes. We stress that we only provide assistance. The immigrants are fully responsible for arranging their documents and attending an appointment at the Federal Police Office.

To use this service, please check the list of required documents below, according to the type of visa, and send an e-mail to imigracao.sinter@contato.ufsc.br. Make sure you inform your full name in the “subject” field and attach each file separately in Portable Document Format (.pdf), with the description of the document in the file title (e.g. Passport.pdf).

Students and researchers who have just arrived in Brazil with a specific visa: Student Visa VITEM IV or Research Visa VITEM I.

Students who already have a Residence Permit for study purposes and wish to renew it.

Students and researchers coming from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru or Uruguay wishing to apply for a Residence Permit based on the Mercosur agreement.

Students and researchers who already have a Residence Permit based on the Mercosur agreement and wish to renew it.

Students who arrived in Brazil with a visit visa and wish to apply for a Residence Permit for study purposes.

International faculty members carrying out work activities at UFSC, whether paid or voluntary.


Important Information:

A visa is the document required for an immigrant to enter Brazil. You may apply for a visa at the Brazilian Consulate located in your home country. See the list of Brazilian consulates on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Consular Portal.

The residence permit is granted to students, professors or researchers who come to UFSC holding a temporary visa to carry out activities for a period longer than 90 days.

Once they get a residence permit, the immigrant is registered (the registration consists of the civil identification by biographical and biometric data) and receives a National Migration Registration (RNM) number and a National Migration Registration Card (CRNM).

The CRNM expiration date varies according to the type of residence permit granted. If an immigrant will continue their activities at UFSC after the expiration date, they must apply for renewal of the National Migration Registration (RNM) and, consequently, for a new CRNM.

Being in Brazil in an irregular condition, without a Residence Permit and a RNM number or holding an expired RNM number, incurs the sanctions provided for in article 307 of the Decree no. 9199/2017.


Information for students/researchers arriving in Brazil 

Immigrants who come to UFSC as undergraduate or graduate exchange or degree-seeking students, holding a temporary student or research visa, must apply for a residence permit for study purposes and  register at the Federal Police Office within 90 days of arrival in Brazil. The official list of documents required by the Federal Police is available here:

Information for immigrants holding a work, volunteer, or teaching, research or outreach visa* – Renewing the RNM

 

The temporary residence permit expiration date for immigrants holding a work, volunteer, or teaching, research or outreach visa will depend on the characteristics of each type of visa. The renewal of the residence permit will be requested by UFSC on the MIGRANTEWEB online environment. Once the residence permit is renewed, the immigrant will have to update their registration and CRNM at the Federal Police within 30 days of the publication in the Federal Official Gazette (DOU). In summary:

  1. UFSC requests the renewal of the temporary residence permit on the MIGRANTEWEB system;
  2. Once the renewal is granted and published in the Federal Official Gazette (DOU), the immigrant must update their registration and request a new CRNM at the Federal Police (PF).

*Even though the request for a teaching, research or outreach visa is made directly at the Brazilian Consulate in the immigrant’s home country and the request for a residence permit is made at the Federal Police (PF), the renewal request must be processed on the MIGRANTEWEB system and its approval must be published in the Federal Official Gazette (DOU). If you have any doubts, you can contact our office.

To request the renewal of your temporary residence permit, please contact SINTER at imigracao.sinter@contato.ufsc.br.
