Information on Moving to Chile
qualified employees are welcome
Meanwhile, Chile has evolved to one of the most innovative countries across the globe and increasingly attracts foreign workforce. Qualified craftsmen, technicians and academicians are desperately sought-after in Chile. The Chilean government is eagerly interested to have entrepreneurs with good ideas in the country. Therefore, a promotional programme “Start-Up Chile” has been started from 2010 for young founders, which makes the emigration to Chile more attractive.
Visa for temporary stay in Chile
The most important prerequisite for moving to Chile is a valid visa. For a stay up to 90 days, a tourist card (Tarjeta de Turismo) is issued at the border free of cost. It can be extended once for 90 more days on payment of a fee. A work visa must be applied at the consulate and is valid for maximum two years. The visa “Residentes Temporarios” for the stay in Chile for a limited period allows, for example, internships or family visits and it is valid for maximum one year. It is also suitable for the immigrants, who are sent for short-term as consultants or employees of a company. Whether it is a commercial or private removal to Chile, we take care of all the necessary documents and send them on schedule, so that your change of residence to Chile can take place smoothly.
Customs information Chile – You must know about it
With the assistance of an experienced partner like OTC global GmbH, a cost-effective moving to Chile is not a problem. The import of household goods must be completed within 90 days. In order to avoid the parking fees, we ensure immediate unloading of your Containers at the port and initiate the import procedures with our agents in the customs office. Used cars are not allowed to be imported to Chile. To purchase a passenger car in Chile is costlier than in Germany, but the resell value is good. For this purpose, you require a tax number (Rol Único Tributario RUT). Non-Residents obtain this tax number only if they submit a notarised authorisation of a Chilean citizen or a foreigner with visa. With the support of OTC global, you are spared the bothersome and time-consuming formalities, because we take care of everything and ensure that the necessary papers like packing lists or freight documents or bills of new goods are available in time.
