So still no news from these morons with 7 days till the 30th when it is supposed to be closed till.??
Tried applying online for 14th July exit and was rejected for ‘insufficient evidence’ to leave.
I sent them copies of enrollment at kids schools in NZ , one way airfares, copies of NZ passports and still it was rejected. :roll: :roll:
Morons, Surely it’s better to let people leave especially those with citizenship in other country, just multa me if try and come back or whatever while borders are still closed, but I wouldn’t be able to if they don’t issue me a permit to re enter anyway?
Seems pointless

Where is the effing issue? so much bullshit.
That sounds absurd. I got permission to leave due to sickness in my close family. Had to try 3 times - keep trying would be my strong suggestion. If you are leaving the country for good, then that is a very valid reason
Yeah told my wife to try this time, Ill let her deal with the idiot bureaucracy in Chile, I’ve dealt with the US and NZ, which at least you know where you are, and they outline the steps and criteria clearly.
Not like friggin Chile where it’s subjective and some dipshit is sitting on the other end of the computer making it up as they go.
Ill let you know what happens :roll:

Yeah that sounds about right, oh and Monday is another day off, so I guess they will decide on Tuesday the 29th what’s happening :roll: :roll:

I hear the government is offering free flights out of the country for migrants. Perhaps you are booking the wrong flight. 😆 🤣

The only new bit I see is that when you go to your home to quarantine the second 5 day period everyone who lives in the house must also quarantine. The rest should have been in place already. They did follow up with my friends for those following 5 days by phone so it was all followed with them. One thing is obvious from posts in other places is that the special permission is automated. Get the key words right and try often enough and you get it. People are getting it for leaving Chile for good and then coming back in with no consequences to their residence. This is one place they could tighten things up.

Key change, no public transport for your second 5 days.

People will also be unable to get "permisos" or to use their "pase de movilidad" if they are fined and don't pay their fines. Whether or not that's going to be enforced is a whole different issue.

Just in case it wasn't clear, closed till the 14th of July for the time being,


I notice it says

"Los chilenos y extranjeros residentes en el país podrán salir, sin embargo, cumpliendo ciertos requisitos y condiciones. Para esto se deberá realizar una solicitud extraordinaria de viaje a través de la comisaría virtual."

Yeah well here's an idea, it might be a good idea to actually outline those certain requirements and conditions, and not leave the decision up to some desk jockey who rejects the application after less than 3 hours, probably because he or she couldn't be assed looking at it.

My wife applied again yesterday, no reply yet, so taking that as a good sign, as they didn't reject it straight away.

All sorted. Dunno why I attempted it in the 1st place, my patience is limited when it comes to bureaucracy.
Took about 18 hours to come through, all approved.
Maybe they were waiting to make sure it would continue to be closed. Idk, doesn’t matter now.

I read today that in the month of May, more than 33000 came in/out on international flights ! I imagined that with the restrictions on issuing permits to get out of prison, there would be very few. My problem is that I can perhaps find a good reason to get out,there’s no way I want the hassle and cost of quarantine when I return.
