Re: Pain Medication

I can tell you right now you'll need a bit more pain medication for yourself for the headache of trying to deal with that. Depends on what you define as "heavy duty," as well as what the diagnosis is. Codeipar (30mg Codeine / 500mg Paracetamol) would generally be the medication prescribed. Got 3 ro...

Re: Moving soon to Chile - what foods can be brought

My experience, I've brought in more than a years supply of allowed food items many times without Aduanas batting an eye so the quantity where questions begin can be quite high. I believe drug searches are done by drug dogs before luggage is put on the carousel. Inside the arrivals terminal, friendl...

Re: Moving soon to Chile - what foods can be brought

Well. Last time I came through the customs, I had a load of cooked food, ground and non ground spices. I filled the form saying I had "food made from plans". They wanted me to see one of my luggages because they saw seeds via the xray. The girl very kindly told me that I cannot take the red chilli ...

Re: Moving soon to Chile - what foods can be brought

Never, ever, ever, put food in a shipping container. We once had a client that had some house movers in the states stick a jar of penut butter in to a drawer of a furniture they were packing. SAG found it at the port. The client had to go to the port, that was 1500 kilometers away, to be present to...

Re: Moving soon to Chile - what foods can be brought

Thanks @Britkid, Yes the company would be paying the fees as they need me to work legally from day one (as I can't wait three months in Chile to start working). I understand that it is not legal to start working if I am on a tourist visa. Yes, I am British, but I understand the fees are reciprocal (...

Re: Personal Income Tax Rates

Thanks a lot for the help. Just couple of questions 1. as the UF changes daily, what do you use to calculate the tax? 2. As the rates are showing monthly, what happens if some one is only employed partly in that year (starting employment in mid year, or finished mid year)? 3. Due to monthly rates, ...

Re: New Member - Moving to Santiago in April 2018

It's way more common (for a Chilean) to live in Maipu and commute up to Las Condes that the other way around. Maipu (in the south west) is a relatively average area. By living in Las Condes you are significantly increasing your cost of living vs Maipu, especially on accomodation. Also, even little ...
