Re: MOVING TO CHILE

Parkside, is necessary to learn how to crawl before we do the walking and that´s a fact. Do not sell your property, get rid of your rental, throw your pots and pans, your cat and your mother in law out of the door. Don´t hire no one or translate anything until you are 100% positively sure that you ...

Re: chile's migration crisis

Are you frigen kidding me? there was a story a few years ago about a shipping container full of chinese smuggled in to Europe, and then they just left them at the port to die. the peo...

Re: Criminal records required for residency, 2017

I am just going to get mine done by the state police. They said they could email me a form to fill out and email back, then a family member could pick up the record from them. No fingerprints required just social and DL number.

Re: Criminal records required for residency, 2017

I wonder if you applied for permanent residency before May 1, like myself (8 months ago), if they will request the criminal background check at some point? Also, I wonder if you could get it done through the state police or sheriff rather than FBI. Last time I looked the process is 13 weeks.

Re: Housing market situation

Sale/rental prices all throughout santiago are getting ridiculous. In my building alone rental price for 23 m2 studios have gone from 180.000 to over >300.000 in 2 years. I was looking into buying something if my perm residency ever gets approved, but after seeing prices and knowing the type of qual...

Re: Getting a Chilean Driving License

To those who´ve done the driving license exam, how much of this 165 page instruction book do I need to study? Much of it is dedicated to explaining how a car works, physiology, driver responsibilities etc etc. to new inexperienced drivers. Or does the exam focus only on the rules of the road? http:...

Re: Venezuela crisis

But it is these "professionals" who probably had free uni that are lowering or capping the wages of young Chilean professionals in a city of ever rising costs that is Santiasco. So it is not only the Chilean lower class that is being affected by immigration but the middle sector also. With a govern...

Re: Uber in Chile

Don’t get why an Uber driver would try and scam you by driving round the block or whatever, isn’t the price fixed before you get in according to the route? Anyway, in Santiago at least since Uber I always try to take it- find the drivers way more professional in their manner and their driving far l...
