Re: getting tax money back: in serious need of some help!

you don't need a bank account, you can have a check sent to you (although probably at only an address in Chile). not sure if that helps in your situation though... just make a friend with a bank account, have them get the money and then send it to you, less a small cut of it for their troubles.

Re: where can I get a bank account?

Hi, I think the subject came up before many times, but I will just tell you what I did. I went to Banco Estado and filled in the form for a cuenta RUT. This is a VERY basic "bank account", its basically just a savings account with an ATM card. Free of charge with a limit of 3.000.000 in the acount ...

Re: Overstaying tourist visa

you can definitely pay to have your visa extended, but I´m not sure where exactly or how the process works. I´m sure if you do some searching on this site you´ll find the information.
