Rising to the Brazilian Samba beat
The 1991 Census recorded 9,301 Brazilian born people in the UK and the 2001 Census recorded 15,215. In 2004, the Brazilian Consulate in London had 13,000 Brazilians registered as living in the UK. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) estimates suggest, that there were 56,000 Brazilian-born people resident in the UK in 2008.
Now looking at several guesstimates of the current Brazilian British population, including those of Brazilian descent, put the number of Brazilian British people in excess of 200,000.
As far as tourism goes, signs are showing a significant growth in Brazilian tourism and spending in Britain.
From January to March this year alone, there were 53,000 registered visits made by Brazilians to the UK, an increase of 16% over the same period last year.
Spending by Brazilians increased by 16% to £43m.
The total number of Brazilians that visited the UK between January and June this year was 136,000, an increase of 49% over the same period in 2016.Tags: Cultural Language Studying Tourism Travel Work
