I lived as an expat in Chile back for two years in the mid-90s, and returned to the States back in 1997. While in Chile I had a cedula and a RUT number; however, I've moved several times over the past 12 years and both are now loooooong gone! My husband is British and we've live in the US now for 6+ years However, if we ever decide to move to the UK, I would need to obtain a Chilean police certificate for my UK immigration paperwork since I lived in Chile for more than one year. This police certificate will basically say that I have no criminal record in Chile, but I would still need to supply it.
The problem is that without having my cedula or even knowing my RUT number, I'm not sure how I'd go about obtaining this police certificate. (In fact, I'm not really sure about how I would go about obtaining my police certificate from the United States even if I DID have my cedula/RUT!) Also, my US passport is in my married name, which is different than the name I had back in 1995-97, and I assume that only complicates matters.
Bear in mind that I'm NOT looking to emigrate to the UK any time soon, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to investigate this now. Any guidance you can provide would be much appreciated!
