Re: Formulario 10 for Visa - Can it be done online?

I am in this same boat. Need to pay the Formulario 10 and it appears I can pay TGR online for a zillion different things, but nothing that appears to parallel an immigration fee.

Tried that previous link but its a deadlink now on TGR.

Anyone have tips from recent experience paying this online?

Re: The Big Patagonia Resettlement Idea

Chile attracts free-thinkers, those who can think outside the box. Not caged by culture or the hive mind. The problems arise when free-thinkers try to collaborate in a group effort. That requires group-think and compromise... so these free-thinker groups are pre-programmed to fail.. kind of like tr...
