No, as ChatGPT told me. But everyone wants to be there.

I ask ChatGPT. Is Portugal a New State of Brazil?
No, as of my last knowledge update in September 2021, Portugal is not the new state of Brazil. Portugal and Brazil are separate countries with distinct political systems, governments, and cultural identities. Portugal is a European country located on the Iberian Peninsula, while Brazil is the largest country in South America. They have a shared history due to Portugal’s colonization of Brazil in the past, but they have been independent nations for centuries.

This video gave me this idea…thank you Eliezer. Eliezer is a Brazilian digital nomad that moved recently to Porto, Portugal.

Immigration from Brazil to Portugal has been significant in recent years.

Many Brazilians have chosen to move to Portugal in search of better economic opportunities, higher living standards, and improved quality of life.

The flow of Brazilian immigrants to Portugal increased notably after the global financial crisis in 2008, which impacted Brazil's economy.

Portugal, on the other hand, experienced a period of economic recovery during that time, attracting migrants from various countries, including Brazil.

There are several factors that have contributed to the attractiveness of Portugal for Brazilian immigrants.

These include linguistic similarities (both countries speak Portuguese), historical ties between Portugal and Brazil, cultural familiarity, and the ease of obtaining Portuguese citizenship for those with Portuguese ancestry.

Brazilians in Portugal are involved in various sectors of the economy. Many work in the service industry, particularly in restaurants, hotels, and tourism-related businesses.

Others find employment in sectors such as construction, healthcare, education, and technology.
