Nah, It would be a PR disaster to say that. The modus operandi is to leave a small stream go through to avoid being labeled as xenophobic.
Really? I’d never have guessed :lol:

Thanks for confirming my suspicions.

Re: chile's migration crisis

If Piñera doesn’t want any more Venezuelans he could come right out and say it, this “democratic responsibility visa” crap is chamullo straight out of “El Cuento del Tío”. Most people realise that now, but when you’re 9 months pregnant, desperate to get to somewhere safe where family or friends are ...

Re: Online Service Taxation

Sounds like Chile is planning an equivalent of Argentina's AFIP? That way they get to control everything, and yes, it's a disaster. It's impossible to even write an invoice without passing through AFIP's system. The obvious consequence, apart from tying the country in knots, is to cause an enormous ...

Re: Argentina power outage

Just got back online here, seems like the fault was fixed fairly quickly, within 2 hours, but it takes a bit longer to switch on the whole country I guess. where are you? I’m in BA, more specifically Colegiales. We have electricity today 😃 I need to get back to this thread sometime but not on a mob...

Re: Cellular phones

Need more data points, I'm sure I'm not the only one that has tried country unblocking a Chile phone. I believe if the Chile carriers are using customized firmware, then the unblocking services may not work. Can someone correct any technical misunderstanding I have on this. That's interesting, I bo...

Re: Venezuela crisis

I think the idea is to have a “human avalanche “ escort the aid across the border, there probably won’t be a clear shot at an engine, and any sniper will cause huge and televised panic. I’d send a bulldozer in front of the convoy but that’s just me.

Re: Venezuela crisis

If you want to follow this in real time, Instagram is the place to look. Caraota Digital puts up verified content, it’s a bit slower than cronica_policial and lasverdadesdesalazar. DolarToday is also there but with its distinct slant. I’m watching CNN en Español at the moment, they have reporters at...

Re: Leaving Venezuela

Getting the family to Chile seems to be fairly difficult. Maybe a more reasonable objective would be to get them somewhere safe. If they don’t have even expired passports, then I understand that they can travel to Brazil (Boa Vista or Manaus) with only an ID card and then on to Argentina. The airlin...
