Re: appointments at Registro Civil to renew ID

Totally depends on where you are. My wife went in to registro civil in Concepcion on Oct 11 to renew carnet with no appointment, took a number and was served two minutes later. Five minutes and a few thousand pesos later they said it would be ready in 3 weeks and would be posted on the website when ...

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

"Part of the reason for the tourism numbers not dropping off much so far is because a lot of them will have booked flights and hotels before this started. So part of their calculation in "shall we still go to Chile?" involves thinking about whether they want to lose a big chunk of money and have to ...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Arriving Santiago airport at 6 pm today, renting a car and need to get to Providencia/Manuel Montt area.

Anything in particular brewing that I need to look out for?

Haven't been to Santiago since May, don't miss it at all.

Re: Shipments into Chile since the protests

I was expecting one shipment approx every week from overseas since Oct 18, but instead i got 4 packages all of them yesterday.

So it seems things were not surprisingly a bit hung up.
