HOWEVER, RuneTheChookcha posted a link (see above) which takes you to the OIRS website. On Sunday I filled in the info requested on the site and wrote a few lines stating I've been waiting for my Visa "blah blah blah", pressed send and waited patiently for an answer. Lo and behold, not only did I get a reply back on Monday, but I was told my Visa had been APPROVED! I couldn't believe how quickly they replied to my request and even more surprised I had got the Visa - Exactly 9 months to the day.
Great I thought, the guys and gals in Santiago were finally able to get their pencils "out" and get the paperwork done, no more waiting around for me. Or so I thought. I went to my Visa office here in Conce this Thursday, and showed the Jefe the printed out email. He read it, folded the piece of paper and politely slid it back to me. Smiling, he then said, "tiene que esperar para el certificado".
You gotta hand it to these guys.
So, I am now waiting (what a surprise) for the famed certificate which once received will be the end to my waiting woes!
Now, about that cuenta corriente...
Hhaha, i had the same thing, i sent a message to change my address and that it wasnt showing on the website, 24 hours later, all was on the website and address was updated
might wait for the 4 month mark and send the email asking the status... might make it happen faster!
this is usually how chileans filter out real work from false work, i wonder if it is they get sooo many people apply from other south american countries they wait for enquires to see if they are for real or not?
