Did any of you open bank accounts here with your Brazilian partners before you got any Brazilian IDs or proof of salary? Like, were you able to register as a dependent on your Brazilian partner's account with only your passport, CPF, and a bill in your name?
If so, was it a savings account or checking account?
And which bank did you have any luck at?
Last question: Can someone sedate me before I go postal on all the bureaucrats in this country? Thanks.
