Prorroga Under Current COVID Situation

Post by picalena » Tue May 19, 2020 11:14 am

So we will need to apply for a prorroga of our PD very soon. Obviously, we don't want to travel to Chile at the moment. Any word on if these are being handled any differently right now? As in, do we put the COVID thing down as our reason not to come to Chile or the usual reasons we have used in the past? Any word on whether these are being processed slower or faster due to the situation? I know they have to purportedly send it off to Santiago, but they always seem to be actually signed off on by the person at the consulate here, so....

Thanks for any input.

contact the consulate by email first, they are providing solutions remotely in most cases. obviously, every consulate has its own solution.

covid seems like a pretty good excuse.

really they should have made that all automatic.
