Former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro has applied for a tourist visa to be able to stay in USA six more monthsas reported by one of his lawyers in an interview with the British newspaper ‘Financial Times’.
“Florida will be their temporary home away from home (Brazil),” said the lawyer, Felipe Aleixandre, founder of the AG Immigration firm. The former president “needs some stability“, according to Aleixandre, who has left open the possibility for Bolsonaro to apply for a permanent visa.
This comes after Flavio Bolsonaro, son of the former president, suggested over the weekend that his father could return to Brazil “tomorrow, in six months or never,” according to the newspaper ‘O Globo’.
The information is contradictory. While some, like the president of the Liberal Party (PL), Valdemar Costa, speak of the fact that He could return next week, others in his close circle affirm that there is no date yet decided.
Bolsonaro himself stated a few days after having to be admitted to a hospital on January 9 due to abdominal problems derived from the stabbing he suffered in 2018, that he would return to Brazil earlier to be treated by his doctors. However, he remains in Orlando, Florida.
