The Certificate of Proficiency in Portuguese for Foreigners (Certificado de Proficiência em Língua Portuguesa para Estrangeiros – Celpe-Bras) is the official Brazilian certificate of language proficiency in Portuguese as a foreign language.

Celpe-Bras is applied in Brazil and in other countries by the National Institute of Studies and Educational Research Anísio Teixeira (Inep), with support from the Ministry of Education and in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
