What is your status while waiting for citizenship application to be processed?

As someone that loves the idea to retire on a Brazilian beach the ease to live and work in other MERCOSUR countries is the biggest advantage for me.
I have a few questions in relation to the MERCOSUR agreement.
  1. Does this apply to naturalized citizens as well? Or only people born in one of the countries? I ask because some places like Spain, who says you can become a citizen in only 2 years if you have citizenship in any Latin country (except Brazil), exclude naturalized citizens from that right.
  2. When you choose to live in another country through the MERCOSUR agreement, do you just go around with your normal passport as your ID? Or do you obtain ID from the other country?

1. Latin America was a colony of Spain, but Brazil was a colony of Portugal. That is the reason.
2. You mean DNI, you do not need passport in Mercosur.

Mercosur agreement does apply to naturalized citizens though there are provisions on length of naturalization.
AFAIK they require 5 years to pass since naturalization.

you still need to go through normal route of obtaining temporary/permanent residence in Brazil.
But you don't need to prove that you fall into any eligible category (e.g. investor or specialist).
Mercosur citizen is a category of its own. So eligibility is easy.

Just FYI
A foreign national who enters Brazil with a permanent visa is considered to be a resident for tax purposes from the day of arrival and therefore, is subject to tax on their worldwide income. The holder of a temporary work visa is also considered to be a resident for tax purposes from the day of arrival if they have an employment relationship with a Brazilian entity. If there is no employment relationship with a Brazilian entity, the holder of a temporary work visa will be considered a resident for tax purposes after the 183 day of physical presence in Brazil within a 12-month period, beginning on the date of arrival or on obtaining a permanent visa, if this precedes the 183 days of physical presence.
