Re: Violent con man in Chile

Old timers on the forum will recall the Argentina /American couple. Few years back we had this Argentina / American couple stocking the back channels of the forum and the overall expat community in Santiago. Never did figure out what their overall game was (real estate experts or whatever), but it ...

Re: Getting a Driver's License

Thanks for sharing. I think I mentioned this once before but I called 4 companies Automovil Club de Chile, Falabella Insurance, Mapfre, and BCI. All of them except Falabella said I must have a Chilean license to be insured. I then got Falabella to put it in writing that I was covered without a lice...

Re: Please tell me robbery is not common like this one...

Chilean robbers are much more direct. My daughter was held up at gunpoint around 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, in Santiago. She's still pretty shaken up -- I still haven't figured out if it happened at or near her university, or somewhere between the metro and her apartment. thats a rare one for santiago,...

We can still obtain a RUT in one day in most cases; however, I am telling everyone just due to scheduling considerations to expect 2-3 business days for us to obtain a temporary RUT. My employees get a little t...

Re: Temporary RUT for Foreigners Change (NOT VISA RELATED)

We can even request the rut for...

Re: Keeping permanent residency

I think you only have to renew your permanent residency status at the embassy (or in Chile) every 4 years, not every year..that is what I got out of several other recent threads on this subject. you need to spend 1 day a year in chile, if you cant do that you must visit the chilean embassy 1 day pr...
