Re: electric vehicles in chile

Being from the Bay Area doesn't automatically grants protection from following the money, I'd say quite the opposite because the whole region is notoriously corrupted by its wealth. The quote I posted says that "They [petrol vehicles] also sometimes combust when they're just sitting around". In oth...

Re: electric vehicles in chile

Today's Hindenburg :shock: https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Tesla-Vehicle-Catches-Fire-in-Los-Gatos-503080661.html Not a fan of Tesla but the article looks like the oil lobby's propaganda. Imagine a news piece every time a gas-fueled car catches fire. For example : It's always worth noting tha...

Re: New rules or the same old

Yeah I thought the same thing. I would think it would be like renewing a driver's license or passport. Show them the old one and get a new one but no this is Chile so we'll make it as difficult as possible..

Re: New rules or the same old

I renewed mine last year, and had to produce the original cert. If you dont have it, you need to get a copy. I've been trying for 8 months to get a copy and getting nowhere. Sent in all required docs requested by extranjeria, patiently waited for copy to arrive knowing they're busy with all the new...

Re: New rules or the same old

I am curious to know if beside the certificado de vigilancia did Registro Civil also require your original certificado de residencia permanencia definitiva? or just the PDI certificate only? No if you have your carnet, it show that you have "residencia permanencia". Because you have a run card and ...

Re: New rules or the same old

Last time I renew my id card, I only needed to get a "cetificado de vigencia", take a copy and go to Registro Civil, Yeah unfortunately like Paladin said you have to go the PDI office to get your certificate. I am curious to know if beside the certificado de vigilancia did Registro Civil also requi...

Re: Que hora son mi corazon, daylight savings time

Change your time tonight 1 hour forward tonight, and get ready for all the "expert" opinions on how you should "adapt to this" . Personally I would leave it as it is and not change for summer time, I prefer lighter mornings, does it really need to be light at 10pm in summer (instead of 9pm if they ...

Re: Chile Forum is 13 YEARS OLD!!!

Congrats and thanks Charles, my only regret is not having found your forum sooner. Would have saved me a lot of headaches that's for sure.

Re: Passport and visa info

Since you have a return ticket to England during that 4 month period it's unlikely they would deny entry but if you are really concerned, better to do as at46 says and renew it in Santiago. If that's not convenient and you're going to be in Buenos Aires you could also renew it there. Chilean interna...
