Is there a spousal visa in Chile?

Post by Alisonmaii » Wed Jul 10, 2019 12:48 am

My boyfriend is from Chile and I am from the UK. We met in Australia whilst on our working holiday visas and have now been together for over 1 year. We have plans to move to Chile together for a 6 month period or longer before we maybe move back to Australia. Is there such thing in Chile where I can get a spousal visa and work whilst I am there? I have looked into the tourist visa that allows me to stay 3 months and then I must leave for a day and can come back but I really want to work for the time I'm there also. If anyone has any information on anything I can look more into I would be so grateful!

Marriage is last option haha

Canada has working holiday visa with Chile, doesn't the UK?

UK are a different I think (a special kind of special, God knows what brexit will do now), I am pretty sure Ireland does but almost certain UK does not

Thought so, some countries are quite progressive with these working holiday schemes, others not so much
Here's the lit for Chile
Citizens of Australia, Austria,[39] Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Japan,[40] New Zealand,[41] Poland,[42] Portugal,[43] South Korea and Sweden aged 18–30 or 35 (in the case of Canada and Hungary) can apply for a 1-year Chilean working holiday visa.[44] Also, if they can provide evidence of holding a medical and comprehensive hospitalisation insurance to remain in force throughout his/her stay in the Republic of Chile.[45]

As for the original question I dont think there is a spousal Visa, but I imagine the first requirement would be to be an actual spouse.
