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 imagine it was only a "fender bender" and it was resolved so you are off the hook. You need to go in person to the PDI ( International Police) to ask them about your resident status if you cannot sleep at night although I believe you won't have no problems.

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.
