ⓘ Bangladeshi immigration to Brazil

Bangladeshi immigration to Brazil is a new trend, as the South American country has no tradition of receiving the Bengali people. Most of the countries declare them as "refugees", although for the first time, Bengalis started to arrive in Brazil in the late 2000s and the migratory wave started to go upwards in the early 2010s. One of the reasons for choosing Brazil as a new home for these immigrants is their vision of the country being welcoming and full of opportunities, which they do not find in their home country, beyond the poverty, political and religious persecution in Bangladesh.

Some immigrants have been victims of exploitation being deceived by international human trafficking, but those who work legally in the country tend to be employed in factories where halal slaughter a type of meat preparation that follows Islamic precepts is required.

Only between the months from January to April 2018, the Bangladeshi were the fifth group of foreigners who requested refuge in the Latin American country, only being overcome by Venezuelans, Haitians, Cubans and Chinese.
