Well now it becomes more clear why Pinera was telling immigration to "clear their desks".

With the new proposed immigration reform...its going to be difficult with all the people that are in tramite. People that applied for temporary in Jan/Feb/Mar...
If the law passes quickly (like in days) I wonder if the Apr 23 deadline is for existing temp visa en tramite to actually be granted/issued/stamped (normally takes 3-9 months) or if that is the cutoff for applications to be made under the existing temp visa rules?

I am because I don't know exactly how to fulfill this new background check requirement in 20 days. I was hoping the admin would have some inside info on how to go about this (or if it might change with the new president) but either he doesn't know anything we don't or he just doesn't "fish" me.

Some insights into the working process of Extranjería:

http://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/naci ... iana.shtml
Hay tres organismos que participan en la tramitación de los documentos que cualquier inmigrante necesita tener: el Departamento de Extranjería y Migración, la Policía de Investigaciones y el Registro Civil. Pero la comunicación entre estas instituciones es precaria. El DEM posee un software de gestión de datos de 1996, el cual no permite, entre otras cosas, dar seguimiento al proceso administrativo de una persona una vez que la documentación ingresa a PDI. Con el Registro Civil, por otro lado, tampoco existe ninguna forma de comunicación que permita agilizar la obtención de la tan anhelada cédula de identidad nacional.

Así como no hay una comunicación efectiva entre las instituciones vinculadas, tampoco existe un organigrama que estructure los cargos y secciones en la compleja burocracia que caracteriza la tramitación de visas y permisos. Ello según información entregada vía el portal de transparencia. De hecho, tampoco existen perfiles de cargos específicos del DEM ni manuales de funciones que informen sobre qué debe hacer un determinado funcionario y cómo debe hacerlo. El DEM funciona, en definitiva, “de manera bastante artesanal”, resume Alexis Aguirre, ex funcionario del organismo y actual abogado del INDH.
