Re: The trade wars, they have begun

Re: Visa application question in light of new laws

Your picture makes much more sense now, but thanks for the reference to the Extranjeria site.

Re: Visa application question in light of new laws

That would really piss me off if marriage to a Chilean now allows one to go directly to permanent residency without the temporary residency step. I misspoke. I checked again with my wife, and there is no jumping the line if you are married to a Chilean. Its still temporary to permanent, two years.

Re: Visa application question in light of new laws

You file. You prove you have resources for your wife to support you durring the temp residency. Immigration rubber stamps it. This was part of my original question--retirement visa or regular process. To clarify, my wife works part time at the U de Chile med school, and her income is rather small. ...

Re: Visa application question in light of new laws

Ok, no new law. A thousand pardons. At best it sounds as if procedures may change after 1 August, but there is no indication what the changes might be, if there are any at all. Can anyone clarify for me what the current law says about spouses?

Visa application question in light of new laws

I am married to a Chilean, but our marriage is not registered in Chile. My wife currently lives in Santiago, and I will be joining her in about 11 months, when I retire. I have been looking at the blog about visa questions, and had hit upon the retirement visa as the easiest way to make this transit...

Re: North Korea

My father fought in the war too, and I join you in in being glad that he didn't live to see this. The agreement is a nothingburger, matches point by point what the North Koreans said they wanted before the meeting. To top it off, the world got that embarrassment of a news conference from Trump. To p...

Re: The trade wars, they have begun

I agree. The Europeans have a lot of experience in finding those products that do the most damage. They target industries that are heavily dependent on European markets. Back in the 80s when the US hit steel they picked a basket of targets that included lemons, almonds, etc. Its Harley Davidson's tu...

Re: The trade wars, they have begun

The stupidity of Trump's trade policy is just amazing. Cathrine Rampell hits a lot of it right on the head: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/faced-with-the-free-market-trump-takes-out-the-shackles/2018/06/04/e79bc4a6-6837-11e8-9e38-24e693b38637_story.html?utm_term=.32b9e58eaf2b.

Re: Which temp residency to apply for?

Right now, until about August 1st, 2018 at least, the retirement and periodic income visa is still an option if you have some form of periodic income to support yourself outside the country. After august 1st, we have no clarity about the rules or procedures that will apply. Even at that, the rules ...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

Rich club. The OECD started as the OEEC, which was responsible for divvying up Marshall Plan money after WW II to rebuild Europe. It evolved into a rich country's club, although anymore it includes countries that meet general liberal market standards (like Colombia...and Chile). Lots of economic for...

Re: North Korea

A few months ago I read a story about Russia wanting to build a natural gas pipeline through North Korea to South Korea, but the project has been held up due to the political uncertainty. The North Koreans, according to the article, want it for both their own use and for the security guarantee that ...
