Re: USA Citizen Married To a Chilean Wanting to Move to Chile

Keep in mind that coming to Chile is like entering the "twilight zone". Many things don't make any sense. I'll be happy to trade Twilight Zone experiences with you. I've been in and out of Chile regularly for the past 25 plus years...and I'm still retiring there. So nothing should surprise you by n...

Re: USA Citizen Married To a Chilean Wanting to Move to Chile

Procrastinating IS the Chilean way, no question about it! Your wife could've made this an easier transition but she didn't. The easiest solution to your immigration issue would be to get an appointment with a Registro Civil of your choice and get remarried and then continue with the process. [/quot...

Re: USA Citizen Married To a Chilean Wanting to Move to Chile

Huelshoff-Is your marriage registered in Chile with the registro civil? This could possibly cause the process to be longer. My wife and I registered our marriage two years ago which basically shows we have been married in Chile since the time we were married in the states. I would imagine that the ...

Re: USA Citizen Married To a Chilean Wanting to Move to Chile

The consulate in Houston sent me a link to this form, along with a list of conditions for applying for a visa based on marriage. The list was generated by the consulate, and stated that the application must be initiated by the Chilean spouse--which is inconsistent with the questions on the form above.

Re: USA Citizen Married To a Chilean Wanting to Move to Chile

I just contacted the Chilean consulate in Houston, and they gave me a turn-around time of six months and told me that my Chilean wife had to initiate the application. Their paperwork also said it would take 2-3 weeks, but gave me the six month timeline in a subsequent email. Which consulate did you ...

Re: USA Citizen Married To a Chilean Wanting to Move to Chile

I am retiring and moving to Chile in July. My (Chilean) wife was at a meeting at the US Embassy in Santiago earlier this week. She spoke with representatives from the Chilean immigration ministry. They told her quite forcefully that changes to the immigration law set to be in force "in the second qu...

Re: Venezuela crisis

Sounds like the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. I wouldn't be surprised if Maduro has let some Hezbollah affiliated folks in, but a threat to anyone? Maybe to themselves. Trump did claim recently that they have been finding prayer rugs on the southern border. Apparently he saw that in a movie. Too m...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

I agree that the Chicago Boys should not get the credit they often do. Ffrench-Davis, who is a middle of the road Chilean economist, makes a pretty strong case that it was the ousting of the Chicago Boys which led to the long-run recovery of the Chilean economy. He argues that their policies led to ...
