I'd go talk to the local PDI, and if they can't give you a straight answer, get them to call the PDI at the airport.

I would definitely agree with Gloria. Check in person with the PDI. It sounds like you have the temporary visa which is good for one year and allows a certain number of days out side of chile, which on the face of it would allow you to leave. BUT better to be safe than sorry. If you get to the airport and they won't let you board your flight the fees can mount up plus there is (or used to be) a two week waiting period before you can ask (beg) to book another flight.

why would a car accident have any relevance to your ability to leave the country?

were you arrested?

something is not adding up in this story.

well i went to the police with the other driver, filled some forms and declaration.

they want us to go to court at the end of the month but the other driver want to solve "A la buena " in the notary instead of doing the whole court thing...

Ok I just passed through pdi at santiago airport. My cedula was expired since April 3. I produced a scanned copy of correos receipt for my application for permanencia, and was told that I needed the original receipt. I explained that my albogado filed the forms.
I received some kind of lecture, but was allowed to pass. I think I was told that my cedula was extended, but didnt follow everything I was told.

The female PDI officer gave me a hard time when I reentered with my expired carnet. Asked for my PD certificate, which after digging around and producing a 600 dpi copy of doc said that I needed both back and front for a valid copy :roll: Of course, I later found out that all was BS.

Just another thing that pisses me off after they allowed so many law breakers in without a problem.

I just try to remember they are on a ridiculous power trip because they were probably on a receiving end of a ridiculous power trip from their supervisor or whatever earlier that day. Applies especially to “security guards” in supermarkets, pharmacies etc. but definitely to anyone in PDI.
