Re: Papers when leaving Chile - Permanencia Definitiva

Thanks, that's what I thought but wanted to be sure.

Papers when leaving Chile - Permanencia Definitiva

OK stupid question time: I now have my permanencia definitiva and am flying to the UK soon. At Chilean border control when leaving Chile do they just need my passport, or also my cedula? I also have a certificado de permanencia definitiva which I would imagine is not needed. Finally that annoying bi...

Re: shutdown-chile does it again

I remember hearing that this ridiculous banking situation in Chile has its roots in trying to deal with narco-money floating around South America. The bureaucracy and stringent rules put in place are meant to stop drug money freely flowing through the Chilean banking system. Does this sound right? ...

Re: shutdown-chile does it again

Chilena friend of my wife works for Santander on the corporate side - not super high up, but recently got a secondment to their Madrid office - basically just one of their army of mid-ranking clerks I guess. Anyway, we were chewing the fat with her, and I was having a little moan about the perennial...

Re: new temporary visa

Just looking at the requirements here: http://www.extranjeria.gob.cl/media/2015/04/TE16_ISO_TEMPORARIA_POR_MOTIVOS_LABORALES1.pdf It seems straightforward enough. The thing is though, you need a contract to obtain it, and if you're initially on a tourist visa then you're probably going to have diffi...

Re: Might move to Santiago, Chile

I'm not picking a fight with you. I'm disagreeing with your interpretation of Expatbob's original comments. As to the deletion of your posts, that's between you and admin, though I do find it strange. Well if it's between me and admin, as you say, what does it have to do with you? Why did you even ...

Re: Might move to Santiago, Chile

Admin's comments were obvious satire, no? Expatbob's were just nasty and resentful. BTW, what's with the deleted content of your posts? Well you could say that bob's comments were satire, I mean what constitutes satire is to some extent down to opinion, and in any case just because something is sat...

Re: Might move to Santiago, Chile

Lots of rustled jimmies ITT - of course Expatbob is extrapolating some general statements based on his own experience, but haven't we all done that at some point when talking about Chile? It's also interesting to note that when admin makes a post condemning the Chilean male everyone's like "lol, so ...

Re: Help understanding terms used in car sale ad descriptions.

Oh year, what I was going to say was that several of your questions seem to be about adverts you've seen where (presumably) the price seems v good but there's some story attached. I would just say: apply a bit of common sense - if it sounds too good to be true, it is. If there's a load of bullshit s...
