Brazil is permitting 30 days for operators to register their interest in providing sports betting to Brazil. To register, the company must submit documents demonstrating its legal qualification, fiscal regularity and labour, economic-financial qualification and technical qualification.’

The document, Decree 1330, specifies the rights of bettors, AML, guidelines for RG and fixed-odds betting, as well as non-negotiables for companies wishing to operate in Brazil.

The document defined that the operation of sports betting must be in a competitive environment and can be marketed through any distribution channels, both physical and online.

Preliminary provisions covered fixed-odds betting, commercial exploitation of the lottery and rigging in general. 

For foreign companies wishing to operate in the country, they must have a subsidiary in Brazil to qualify to provide sports betting. Additionally, proof of the company's incorporation will also be required prior to being granted authorisation for the licence.
