Re: Opening A Bank Account

I switched to Falabella 5 years ago from Scotiabank and the service has been very good, zero cost, good point system. Account executives that actually help you and dont change every two weeks. My only fear is that I was planning to take a very big (to me...) chunk of money from an apt sale back to C...

Re: Worker Dependent Visa query

Re: lost certificado de permanencia definitiva

My wife lost hers and we applied and five months after they sent a letter saying there was something missing and we had to reapply and start all over again. It was a major nightmare. Sorry, I'm sure it will work out fine for you. Even though, in her case it would have been easier for her to just lea...

Re: Chilean Driver's License

As long you have a temporary residence your valid USA license is enough. Int’l not required.

Drivers license is irrelevant for purchase.

Re: Renewing your cédula de identidad if you have permanent residence.

PDI database has been wrong twice in my experience, once not having the evidence of a trip I needed to avoid losing my residence, which they only found after I presented the stamp from an expired passport I had almost thrown out. Another time they lost the evidence of my daughter entering Chile, whe...
