The Joys of Bureaucracy

Bureaucracy is this amazing thing that hunts you down and gives you headaches that you cannot do anything about because you are stuck in the system and have no way of changing it.

Thanks to this wonderful thing, I got an e-mail today that told me that in order to get my work permit I will need to submit a gazillion documents that need to be notarized and then legalized (whatever this may mean) by the Brazilian consulate – something that takes at least two weeks to do. Then once the company completes some other documents on its end, they will file for a working permit, which will take another 45 days to process. Looks like I won’t be starting work anytime soon..

Yay to more travels. Boo to stupidity of people who could have told me about these requirements two months ago.
