Travel, permanent residency, expired carnet

Post by st130811 » Mon Nov 04, 2019 6:53 pm

My wife has been trying to renew her carnet (pending a PDI appointment to get certificado de vigencia) and has an upcoming trip to the US. Will she be able to make the trip with a valid US Passport but an expired Carnet?

I have the same question. Applied for renewal 6 weeks ago and still haven't received new carnet.Went to Extranjeria and was told no problem just leave and re-enter with your passport but it's PDI that makes the determination and I don't trust Extranjeria to actually know. Really don't want to find out they were wrong when I'm at the airport.

I asked on the PDI website but haven't received a reply. The nearest PDI office is 100 kilometers, guess I'll have to take a trip to ask in person unless someone here on the forum has a definitive answer.

the receipt for request or appointment to get the certificate, your expired id, and your valid passport.

other option is try a regional PDI office outside Santiago to get the certificate faster.

If you are between visas, make sure you do not fall under these new regulations too.

Not sure what you mean by certificate? I have residencia definitiva, so no visa required. My five year cedula expired a few days ago, I applied for renewal at Registro Civil 6 weeks ago and haven't yet received a new one, they say to be patient it is coming. So the question is can you exit Chile and return with an expired cedula and a current U.S.passport?

I exited Chile with an expired PD cedula and the PDI officer said nothing (to remind or bring my attention to it). On entry, I did have a longer than needed interaction with the PDI officer at the booth (power tripping no mas) and I did have a "copy" of my PD certificate but she was an ass saying that I needed a copy of "both" sides. I was eventually on my way after she exercised her authority to instill fear, uncertainty and doubt.

So bring your PD cert when you leave.
There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
