Re: Brexit

The PM wants to deliver what the people voted for, Parliament wants to deliver what is best for the country. Amazingly, they are two different things. The EU is in serious need of slimming down and also dealing with the problem of free movement within the EU and immigration as a whole. There isn't a...

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

I have never been asked for a loan. My husband was considering giving a friend a large loan but I put my foot down. They were friends and nothing scuppers a friendship quicker than money issues. The only problem I have had with people not returning things was a gringo couple who never gave anything ...

Re: Brexit

I have not heard any politician from any party suggest a different deal which has a chance of reaching agreement with the EU. They just say they can negotiate a better deal. Why would the EU give them a better deal? There is no deal which will satisfy everyone and no deal will ever be more advantage...

Re: Returning to Chile after Prorroga

I suppose PDI already has your address? One is supposed to let them know of any change of address. That's how Viña knew I was resident in Santiago. Lost carnets are different. Those you can get at your local RC. Passports are different. Long story short, just went through the whole process a few mon...

Re: Returning to Chile after Prorroga

I'm confused, only this specific set of RC offices rule applies to all foreigners renewing their carnet, cause I just did it last year here in San Antonio? Presumably that is your local office? Province of San Antonio. If you live in one of the comunas of Santiago, I am in Las Condes, there is no c...

Re: Returning to Chile after Prorroga

There are only some places outside Santiago but within easy distance which will/can do it. Los Andes decided they wouldn't after doing a few. Viña and Valpo do it but lines are very long in Valpo (not sure if they have a reservation system). A friend was in Temuco on business and did it there! So yo...

Re: Returning to Chile after Prorroga

Thanks for the response guys! I'm wondering, you said "tramite at the Policia Internacional (certificado de vigencia)" --- is that a tramite I need to do as soon as I get back into the country? I spoke to the consulate and they said all I had to do was land in the country and renew my carnet as soo...

Re: Bachelet floated as World Bank head?

The President of the World Bank has traditionally been a US citizen. That was the agreement when it was set up. No idea if that is a legal requirement or a simpler agreement. The President stepping down is Korean-American. As things stand, Bachelet doesn't qualify by nationality let alone anything e...

Re: Tenants disappeared during the night

What if you make the tenant name a guarantor on the contract? Can you go after that person if the tenant does a runner? It might make them think twice about running if they have named a family member. First they would have to find a family member willing to guarantee them! I doubt that would be easy.

Have you looked at Torres del Paine lately? It is going the same way.
