How long does it take for your permanent residency application to appear on the system?

Hi, simple question.

In your own experiences, how long has it taken for your “Solicitud de permanencia definitiva” to appear on the system? It’s been more than the “45 días hábiles ” since I first applied, but I’m seeing nothing on consultas.extranjería

Thanks.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Got my first dose of Pfizer today. Not technically my turn but I heard they were vaccinating anyone at the cesfam in Valdivia, so I went. There was practically nobody there, no wonder they’re giving them away.

Re: Internet in Rural areas

My in laws live in the rural Las Quemas area of Osorno. Does anything know a possible solution so they can access decent internet there? Very poor 3G/4G signal there from all the main providers.

This is why you marry a Chilean instead like I did!

Re: Transferring money

How would one go about getting money from my U.K. account into a Vale Vista for a notary when buying a property. Is it possible to do this via Transferwise? No. You need a bank account. Would a bank account of say, my wife, be OK? I’ve just got a Cuenta Rut which is obviously useless for this kind ...

why are you not applying for permanent residency?

Renewing Temporary Visa

Hello. I’m slowly approaching the expiring date of my temporary visa and I wish to renew it. The only thing is I’m not sure what documentation I need to do this, or whether I need to go through the whole process of applying again. I notice on the Extranjeria website it has information regarding “Pró...
