                       STEP 3 - LEGALIZATION OF DOCUMENTS


•   In order for a document issued abroad to be recognized as legally valid in Brazil, it is
    necessary to obtain Brazilian Consular Office authentication of the original document
    issued in its consular jurisdiction.

•   Once you have all documents listed in Step 2A, 2B, 2C, 2E, 2F and 2H, they must be
    authenticated/legalized at the Brazilian Consulate.

•   Take or send the originals and one photocopy of each original to the Brazilian
    Consulate of your jurisdiction to get the photocopies legalized. The Consulate will
    charge you to legalize each one of your documents. Be prepared to pay by cash or
    money order. You can also send your documents to the Brazilian Consulate through a
    visa service (please check the companies available in your area).

•   Regarding the Brazilian contract (Step 2F), your signature on all three copies must be
    notarized. Once notarized, take the three copies of your contract to the Brazilian
    Consulate to be legalized.

We strongly recommend that you contact the Brazilian Consulate of your
jurisdiction to confirm their procedures to legalize your documents.
