Hi,
I am between Brazil and Europe for the last 9 months and therefore I would like to know when I have to be back in Chile at the latest not to
lose my residencia.
is it no more than 365 days that I can be outside of Chile or is it once per calender year in Chile?

not sure if I expressed myself well.

Thanks,

Groschi

The key word is "plazo"
¿Puede perderse la permanencia definitiva?
Sí. Una razón es la llamada "revocación tácita": ausentarse de Chile por un período superior a un año ininterrumpido. De todas formas, se puede solicitar en algún consulado chileno en el extranjero una prórroga de la vigencia de la permanencia definitiva, por un plazo de un año. Ésta debe ser solicitada 60 días antes del vencimiento de la permanencia definitiva y sólo se podrán conceder hasta un máximo de cuatro prórrogas en forma sucesiva.

While under temp residency, 180days with in the year.

Under perment residency, you need to be in chile at least 1 day year.

If you plan on applying for citizenship, wouldn't the 180 day rule also apply during permanent residency to "demonstrate a "substantial" or "significant" connection to Chile as discussed in the citizenship thread?

If so, then the one day a year requirement is only to maintain permanent residency, nothing more?
Between tourist, temp residency, permanent residency, citizenship, vehicles and income taxes, it's like "who's on first". :?

Sorry, but that doesnt match the info from the link above, what is it now, once every 365 days or once a year, big difference between the two.

Or to make it easier, lets say, I left Chile Feb. 8th 2017, when is the latest to be back in Chile not to loose residencia DEFINITIVA

Feb. 7th or Dec. 31st?????????

Pretty sure it is best to say it like this: You cannot be out of the country more than 364 days in a row. You have to be back by 2/7/18. Look out for leap years! If you do not return until 12/31/18, you will be cagado. Also, beware if you are taking a red eye flight. It matters when you arrive in Chile, not when you leave where you are coming from.

cheers,
