Migration is a two-way process
From Brazil, a reminder to immigration-obsessed Britain that not everyone is making their way to the UK to take advantage of its universal wealth and happiness.
Latino Life reports that Brazil has seen a rise in the number of Westerners marrying the locals to gain access to live and work in the country. Between 2009 and 2010 the number of marriage-based visa applications in Brazil increased 95%.
The same problem occurred in Europe in the late 1990s when people who wanted to migrate there paid up to 10,000 euros to marry a Spaniard. Nowadays, Brazil has half Europe's unemployment rate (10.4%) and for Spaniards in particular who currently have 24.6% unemployment, Brazil is a country of opportunities.
