I have been living in Santiago, Chile for the last 18 months
My temporal residential visa ran out in March and I was planning to drive from Chile to New York in my Jeep Cherokee with my family
Anyway, to cut a long story short, mechanics in Argentina destroyed my car as they did not understand the Jeep's computer system
The car has been written off
Fortunately, the insurance company in England have paid out and after realising how expensive cars in Argentina are, we have head back to Iquique in Northern Chile
We have found a car we want to buy but when I visited the notario with the owner we were turned away because I do not have a RUT card now, only a 90 day toursit visa
A few questions
1.) I believe I have to go to the Governacion instead of the SII for a new RUT
Does anyone know how long this takes
2.) If I can require the temporary RUT, can a transferece take place
3.) After acquiring a pasavante (as all the paperwork is up-todate in the respect of technical revision, circule de permission, insurance etc)
Will I have problems because the car was bought in Iquique?
4.) Upon arriving in US, can i keep the car
Any help with this would be much appreicated as we have had 3 weeks of Hell!!!
