Re: importing container using foreign passport

I would like to suggest to the OP to contact a custom agent and ask himself if the exemption of US$5000 applies to only Chileans returning or due to the generosity of the Chilean government to also exempt those "new residents". I got my information out of "the horse's mouth" unle...

Re: Registering my birth at Registro Civil

In fact I was wrong and I hope this will clarify the issue: "¿Cómo inscribo el nacimiento de mis hijos en el extranjero, siendo chileno? La inscripción de nacimiento de los hijos de chilenos nacidos en el exterior se debe realizar ante el Consul en cuya circunscripción ocurrió el nacimiento. El...

Re: Registering my birth at Registro Civil

What aboutthe birth certificate though.. do you collect that at the same time as the RUT? I know you can request these online, so does the RUT they give you immediately work online for requesting a birth certificate?

Re: are charges for rental property damage based on "useful life"?

Gloria just doesn't sound like she has a understanding of how Chile works. Really? I thought I did. Let's see: I have been in Chile almost 9 years, I'm a native, fluent speaker, writer, reader of the Spanish language, I have negotiated the rental of a house, purchases of material construction, a ca...

Re: Citizenship, new requirement for time in country

Exactly the same, wanted to know where I was born, lived, brought up, studied, what I did at work, why I wanted to be Chilean, why I waited 15 years after I was eligible. Really interested in why 4 of my 5 kids went back to Canada after growing up here and one stayed. Wanted to know about my grandd...
