Re: chile's migration crisis

And given the current state of the world, I think the era of mass migration has come to an end. I think you are right , for the time being, govts may even start sending migrants back , however it will be a temporary halt, who knows maybe 5 years . But it will be back, its been going on since the 18...

Re: chile's migration crisis

That report is a pretty fair description of what has been going on here for the last few years with those unfortunates. I am really saddened by this video with what is going on with the Haitians. It makes me sick that ruthless landlords are exploiting the Haitians...just look at the conditions in th...

Virus Humour

I Googled "Coronavirus Humour"
Oddly enough 90% of the results were from France. Still, I thought these were worth the effort.

Re: Formulario 10 for Visa - Can it be done online?

It's a piece of shit alright, that's fairly standard for most government sites I have found , they seem to make it very difficult for people to pay them , I would have thought that would have been priority . The site was working ok for me up till end of 2019, then they did something and I have neve...

Re: Formulario 10 for Visa - Can it be done online?

If you obtain a Claveúnica you should be able to pay online. Its a very useful thing to have as it seems to work on most government sites. Only problem - you have to visit the Registro Civil first to obtain it. :( But the Tesorería site is a mess.....good luck. Otherwise any bank should accept these...

Re: House hunting, what does CALIDAD INDÍGENA mean?

Its worth mentioning that Calidad , as used here differs from its common English usage as a definition of merit, "Export Quality", "Poor Quality" etc. Although Its also used this way in Spanish. But in Spanish there's a second usage; it can describe a condition, eg "en mi calidad de victima"." Su ca...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

No surprises there I've been saying that for years , the Municipal system in Chile is a complete rort that needs rationalisation, and consolidation. So have I. Its not bitching for the sake of it. The longer you live here, the more shit you become aware of. Another example of extravagance, just loo...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Parliamentary salaries are only the tip of the iceberg. Maximo displayed a link from Portal Transparencia detailing the wages of around 1400 employees of the Municipality of Santiago.. For those unfamiliar with regular Chilean wages, they are very generous. And many of these functionaries also claim...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

That's actually the essence of the debate.......the left (not all, but many) voted against the reduction in the "dieta" because the law was stripped of the 50% decrease, so they accused the right (even though some centerleft also voted for it) of playing games and voting for a fake pay decrease. Th...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

No easy way to get up to speed, Wikipedia in Spanish is as good as any for explaining the overall setup. For example https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elecciones_parlamentarias_de_Chile_de_2017 As for News and Opinion, here's most of the mainstream stuff fwiw: . GroupSpeedDial.jpg Not in any particular ...
