Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I got mine a couple of weeks ago in Santiago. Nobody in the office at 10 am--they told us we missed the morning rush. All they did was look at my ID. No fingerprint check. My Chilean wife had forgot her ID at home, and they gave her a CU (or better put the code to activate the CU) anyway. Hint: chec...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I am coming up on ten months of my first temporary residency visa, and need to renew. I recall in I believe mid March some info in this thread about cedulas being extended during the current crisis. It was all up in the air at that time. Am I correct in assuming that I still need to apply for the vi...

Domestic travel

Has anyone heard anything about a near suspension of domestic air travel? I am trying to fly from Santiago to Valdivia, and can't book a flight in the month of May on LATM, Jetsmart, or Sky. I found a LATM press release dated (I think) 20 April that said they were suspending flights to all but eight...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

For what its worth, I had a long chat with my cardiologist yesterday, who has been drafted in to the front line of the COVID-19 response as she is one of a few doctors in Chile trained to use respirators. What she described is much like what can be seen in other countries: equipment shortages (one f...

Half his supporters probably think it’s the sound an owl makes and the other half thinks it’s a man who travels through time and space in a police call box.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I watched the same press conference. It went off the rails at the beginning with Fauci's forced seppuku. By the time he got to the claims of absolute power to reopen the country and his veiled threats to punish any states that resisted him ("Nice state you got there--shame if anything happened to it...

Re: Quarentines and fines

I don’t know about moving into the restricted comunas, but it is my understanding that one has to acquire a permit (online) from the local government to move about, including trips to grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. No idea how long that might take or how it is to be administered.

Re: Quarentines and fines

FYI, we are in Las Condes. We received an UberEats delivery yesterday in about 20 minutes (it was a wine delivery--got to survive this somehow), and this morning my wife hit the Jumbo down the street at 8am (I'm down recovering from knee surgery) and while it was busy it wasn't overcrowded.
