Snowden is a good movie that may answer questions about what they can access.

Re: Travel, permanent residency, expired carnet

Applied for renewal 6 weeks ago and still haven't received new carnet.Went to Extranjeria and was told no problem just leave and re-enter with your passport but it's PDI that makes the determination and I don't trust Extranjeria to actually know. Really don't want to find o...

Re: How will the protests affect our trip?

The situation has calmed quite a bit to generally normal but it can change in a matter of hours as evidenced a week ago Friday. Be prepared to wing if things change and definitely heed the advice given in the above posts. Buen viaje.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Playing out all potential scenarios it comes down to Chile becoming like Switzerland or like Venezuela. Make your bets. Bringing in a new Pinochet only repeats history. Not that I condone what Pinochet did to people in the north but In the south where I am, most of the people supported Pinochet bec...

Re: lost certificado de permanencia definitiva

Actually you don't need the original but you do need a duplicate if you don't have it. It took 8 months but I finally received an email from Extranjeria which contained a link to this website: https://tramites.extranjeria.gob.cl To enter the website you need a ClaveÚnica which can get at the Registr...
