Re: Can COVID 19 vacinations be purchased through private clinics in Chile

Whether or not the FDA or the CDC has authority is completely beside the point. In the state of New York they follow the CDC guidance, and then some. So if you dont wish to spend several weeks in quarantine, you take the vaccines they recognize. There are plenty of people in the EEUU that dont belie...

Can COVID 19 vacinations be purchased through private clinics in Chile

I just read the CDC recomendations for travelling after being vaccinated for covid 19. It appears that they do not recognize the sinovac vaccine: "People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or two weeks after receiving the second dose ...

Re: Chile Borders Closed for 30 days, citizens and residents included

I'd love to hear about that condition that allows residents to leave if they don't return "for at least 30 days." I have a three month trip planned soon and would be thrilled to hear that I can still go... if I can find any flights I also would like to know that. All I read was "leave without retur...

Re: Internet in Rural areas

When I moved here 4 years ago I was able to use a movistar cell phone (with booster, and catching a signal bouncing off a mountain) but the movistar quality has deteriorated to the point where I havent had signal in at least two years. A month ago I had a hughesnet dish installed, and I now have 2G ...

Re: US Citizen Having Baby, Can The Baby Have 1 Last Name in Chile?

I have been told by several sources, that the practice in parts of Chile, when a child is born out of wedlock, the mothers name is listed twice.
It must be difficult to be identified as a bastard by virtue of your name.

Re: Is Embalse el Yeso open?

Seems to me that open or closed means very little in Chile. The fishing season opens on 12 October, and yet I see people fishing every day. Have had people asking permission to fish on my land as well. Ive personally watched Sernapesca drive right past fisherman without even slowing down. For what i...

Re: Diesel vs Gasoline In Chile

I have a mahindra pikup, and recently experienced problems with the Diesel Particulate Filter. The fix is not simply resetting the computer. The filter can be cleaned, but I would caution that if your mecanico wants to flush it out with water run away. The fine particulates can turn to cement. Cost ...

Shipments into Chile since the protests

Has anyone received any shipments from overseas since the protests. I've heard rumours that the aduanas are on strike.
