Getting RUT in Iquique

Post by Nrbret » Wed Dec 19, 2018 9:25 pm

I‘m for a few months in Chile and want to travel, therefore I want to buy a motorbike and need a RUT.
I heard that there are some people, who ,,sell“ their RUT and sign the formular to get your own number.
Does maybe anyone know someone who‘s doing that in or near Iquique?

Thanks for helping!

not sure where you got that from, but sounds illegal.

think you are misunderstanding what people are saying.

you need someone that is a resident or citizen to act as your contact / mailing address for the irs to request a temp rut for foriegners. it is just a contact point, as the chilean tax authority was having trouble finding foriegners when they needed to a few years back and changed the procedure.

if you cant find anyone near you, we can do it from anywhere in the country. contact info is my signature.
