Dears,

I'm new in this forum.

I've got my Business visa this month, and i'm planning to come to Chile on Aug and Sep to travel the country and study different areas to see if I can start one or more projects to get my PR and passport later.

I've 3 main ideas:

Import and export products:

Import dates and perfumes from Saudi Arabia, artifacts from Egypt and Yemen, dried fruits from Indonesia to Chile.


Training and Consulting Company:

 Teaching English trough teachers from USA and Canada
 Providing training courses, accredited from international organization, by cooperation with international institute.
 Marketing for consulting program for developing and assisting values of employees and companies.

E-Marketing Agency:

Using new marketing methods to provide marketing services for companies, restaurants, schools, ..etc.


I didn't decide the budget yet, because i've to know the culture, what people like, competitors, prices,.. and too many things, that I hope i'll figure most of them during my visit.


Please let me know if you can help with your highly appreciated experience.


p.s. Sorry if this is not the proper forum to write in.

You are right Buckwheat, this is not the proper forum to write in. Chileans dislike edible dates, they preferred the other kind. Perfumes like "Desert Flower" and " Camel Breeze" won't go well either. Sorry!

Hello Aymen.... I kind of doubt you really exist. But if you do....One of the deficits many have experienced living here is consistently good customer service. Now if you can market that, you may be on to something. But everything else as far as goods go, Alibaba probably beat you to it.

Sorry if I wrote in the wrong forum, I searched and thought this one is the most proper one.

Regarding Dates, the recommendation came from a business consulting firm in Chile, and I'll explore that when I arrive.

Regarding the perfumes, I'm not sure why you write in a hostile/Sarcastic way.. perfumes depends on the taste of each persons, and if you don't know about the eastern perfumes you have to check the highest brands in the world that used Oud, sandalwood, and too many eastern perfumes.


By the way, i'm not spammer.

I've degree from Canada and master from Spain, and I like business and management.. they are my passion.



Thank you for your reply and welcoming me!!! :roll:

Hello hlf2888

Thank you for replying to my post.

I'm alive and existing.. don't worry :)

You are the second person telling me about Customer Services, please if you can tell me more about that and give me examples that will be very appreciated dear.

Regarding, Alibaba, purchasing online is the trend now, but there are still a margin in the market for those who want to buy small quantity and get the product reach them immediately.


Please follow up your reply, because it is really helpful.


Thank you again.

So you have the "Investors" visa I presume? Is it set for renewal in one year or are you permitted to apply directly to permanent residency?

There have been problems with the "Investors" visa as your progress is under the scrutiny of some desk jockey bureaucrat who probably never has been an investor or entrepreneur or even worked in the private sector.

That is a lot of stress and money for that amount of time you are given in a country where it is best to go slow (usually the slower, the better) and then invest or start a business. Other drawbacks if not a permanent resident are details like needing a legal representative instead of being truly the sole man in charge and the loss of carnet validity in between temporary and permanent residency.

Welcome to the forum and we will be interested in your progress in this long, thin country.

eeuunikkeiexpat,

Thank you for your reply...
Yes I've investor visa (here we call it business visa), I've TR and after spending 6 months during the first year I can change it to PR.

I'll visit Chile for 2 months to study the culture and the best possible project/projects to begin with, then I'll back again in 2019 to finish the other 4 months and make the business running. I think 4 months will be OK to establish one or more project... What do you think??

I've a lawyer firm and I'll look for another one if needed, in addition to a business consultant firm. Also, I'm looking for translator, agency or person to help me arrange my visit to most regions in Chile, and Finally partners if I found.


Please advice me with whatever knowledge you have and I'll be thankful for everyone..

Who knows, may be we can meet in Chile or even work together...


I started such kind of business in Indonesia and Malaysia and businesses are running OK now.
