Re: Travelling Chile and visa runs

If you really need piece of mind, price out and buy the cheapest OW Jetsmart or Sky flight to Argentina and be calm.

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

One of my most useful possessions is an "Industria Argentina" made cast iron enameled plancha bought at the then Mendoza Carrafour that I have used for a decade (and again just last night) allowing me to have that grilled taste in the comfort my apartment rental or when traveling to self-catering lo...

Re: Travelling Chile and visa runs

On your return bus trip to Chile from Argentina they may or may not grant you the next 90 days. You're probably ok for the first time, but later on they might only give you 15 days once they know you're a visa runner. They'll tell you to go and get a visa extension at extranjeria which costs like a...

Re: Travelling Chile and visa runs

Remember, it is the airline at check-in that may hassle you over an onward or return ticket NOT Chile Immigration. The Timatic entry clearly says that lacking an onward or return ticket can be grounds to deny you entry upon which an asshole check-in agent may decide to refuse issuing you a boarding ...

Re: Climate changing in Chile

Like the sun has noooo bearing on climate. How many noticed how the temperature dropped when the eclipse happened? Solar output, magnetic changes affecting it, atmospheric dust affecting it from terrestrial and extraterrestrial (not ET but comet and asteroid/meteor debris) sources, rapid climate cha...

Re: Gastro Medical Help For Friend in Chile With Fonasa

They must be FONASA B, C, D to be able to get bonos for the private system. FONASA A cannot use the private system, only the public system with its waiting lists but it is totally "free". With FONASA B or above, they are paying monthly into the system at the minimum wage level or above whereas FONAS...

Re: U.S. IRS starting to revoke passports

Now, the IRS will actively begin referring unresolved cases to the State Department for potential revocation, IRS spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda told CNBC. The IRS spokesperson said “potential revocation”. It’s only potential because it can’t happen unless and until State can do so — and State will on...

Re: lost certificado de permanencia definitiva

Without a valid carnet, life can be very difficult here, especially when it comes to official and banking transactions, and they do check the dates. People were already reminding me some months ago that renewal time was coming up soon. And that PR certificate is as important as a Passport and needs...

Re: Counterfeit 20k notes

Besides the guide on the watermarks, thread and other visual cues on the Chile central bank site, bills will have a raised texture which you can feel between thumb and forefinger, also if you rub a real bill against another piece of paper, the ink will transfer (thank my wife who once worked in rest...

Re: electric vehicles in chile

To compete globally, Chile would have to up its game in ways that seem alien to the local culture. The example of Maersk is pretty telling. But there aren't any signs of lessons learned from that debacle. Muchos San Antoninos had their eyes opened after that and now realize being manipulated by non...
