Re: Amazon to go to Colombia....Not Chile

Also FA was just a protest vote against Guiller they won't be as credible next time . They are a protest vote against the aged and corrupted politicians from NM or whatever it's called today. I bet FA is getting 30%+ and a second round in 2021 if they can keep from petty fights and acting like they...

Re: Amazon to go to Colombia....Not Chile

I bet this is the reason: https://www.submarinecablemap.com/

Not sure what's the relationship but good luck to JAK in getting at least 25% because Chile is a centrist country historically. Frente Amplio has better chances if they drop their Venezuela-loving parties.

Re: Guide to validating education for a driving license

Social Sciences Beyond the history part, this one is also super easy: Identify democracy when asked about some of its properties (the other options are monarchies and dictatorships, so it would be hard to make a mistake). Understand what Chile is made of: administrative regions, climate zones, natu...

Re: Guide to validating education for a driving license

What to study See the following on the MINEDUC's page (I'm not giving a direct link because they change them every year): "EQUIVALENCIA PARA FINES LABORALES -> Tercer nivel Educación Básica -> Básica Laboral" for a short overview. "Orientaciones: proceso de evaluación y certificación de estudios Ed...

Guide to validating education for a driving license

To get a Chilean driving license as a foreigner, you have to: Pass a theoretical exam (English or Spanish). Pass a medical exam (vision and reaction times). Pass a driving exam (Spanish unless you're lucky to meet a municipality examiner who speaks English). Proof that you have at least eight years ...

Re: Laptop stolen from idiot

It had my laptop and the back up hard drive for my laptop. Four years of digital records of my life, plus all the short stories I wrote in that time frame. The knapsack also had all my financial records for citizenship, bank statements, investment accounts, old cellphone, prescription eyeglasses an...

Re: Global Entry Type Program for Permanent Residents for Expedited Entry at SCL Airport?

Compared to the US or even Europe, there’s barely any security checks in Chilean airports.

Probably that’s why they double-check you before the flights to the US right in the jet bridge lol.

Re: Citizenship, new requirement for time in country

Do you have one? Nothing specified there! There's nothing about the time out of the country in the citizenship simulator: https://extranjeria.chilesinpapeleo.cl/home/index And also nothing in the official requirements from Extranjería's page about naturalization: http://www.extranjeria.gob.cl/media...

Re: Citizenship, new requirement for time in country

Consulates aren’t Extranjería though, better check the actual law.

Re: Opening A Bank Account

Yes, we got into the same problem: neither real estate ownership, nor few millions in the savings accounts in BancoEstado were convincing enough during a cuenta corriente application.

They ask for a job contract or paid taxes if you’re self-employed.

Re: The Pinera administration 2.0

Your link to the free article doesn't work. But I already get the picture that the Rothchild's Economist is bashing Chile on the eve of Pinera's meeting with Trump. After Rothchild's Rio Tinto lost the SQM bid, they chopped the Maersk factory in San Antonio, and still cannot calm down. Sore loosers...
