Re: Farm land.

It's written in our title, compra/venta, registro, etc. as tax exempt, agricultural use. Unless there is a change in the use and designation of the property, it should remain valid.

Re: Connections with bilingual/international schools

History and economics are normally taught in Spanish, even in bilingual schools, and there is a 2018 change in the junior and senior year - history as optional - on a nationwide level. In addition, the Ministry of Education has been personally inspecting all of the credentials of all of the teachers...

Re: What comes next? Chile peso, and economy 2019

Re: What comes next?

My guess is above and below 700 for awhile, then 720. FWIW I attended an economy lecture- two speakers from Santiago in Puerto Varas, sponsored/hosted by Banco de Chile, and one - Rodrigo Aravena - indicated his predictions for the investment climate were a modest growth around 3%, a 640/1 exchange ...

Re: If you have a caretaker, GET THEM UNDER CONTRACT!!!!

As a follow up, after the contract you need to have the documents required by IST on file signed by the employee. This is a loooonnnngggg document that specifies everything they do and how they are supposed to do it. W/O = exactly what admin indicated: the employee's word is what counts. Case: Caret...

Re: Worth Getting Citizenship?

We also took a look at it and the 20 day rule on the police certification killed it. I can't see how to pull that off with out serious assistance and coordination. If/when the Chile Gov. asks admin again about immigration issues, perhaps this will be one that gets mentioned. If we haven't been livin...

Re: Wanted: parcela

FWIW in 2007 The Muni of Puerto Montt had plans in place to pave the coastal road to Calbuco - which provides access to our ilque property - and we celebrated that road completed in 2015. There were also approved plans for Agua Potable Rural (APR) in the area in place in 2010 and we celebrated its i...

Re: Looking for the best City for my Family

We like Puerto Montt and the peninsula south of it - schools, healthcare, access to theater (Frutillar), etc. We like Vina as a place to visit. We've raised three children here (now 21, 21, and 17.5) and there is a good selection of primary and secondary schools - German School, American School, Pum...

Re: A LOT OF ENGLISH NOVELS FOR FREE

We can take all of them and donate them to a school library - only catch, have to ship. If no one steps up, and dropping off a box a TurBus cargo is an option, just let us know.

Re: R.I.P. Steve Anderson, of the Santiago Times

We attended the funeral on Sunday in Panitao. The service brought out the whole community - gathered in the community center. Steve's legacy of environmentalism - Patagonia Sin Represas & fight against Pocuro's housing development & for the Rio Trapen - were the focus of many comments. His immediate...
