We help your employees to obtain the right visa

Chile bureaucracy can sometimes be very creative. They invented around a dozen types of visas.

Depending on the situation of your employee relocating, the visa can be different. Furthermore, if you are relocating a family, special care is needed regarding the partner. If he/she is registered as “dependiente”, he/she will not be able to work. For certain families, it does not matter. For others, it can be a source of frustration. As integration problems of the partner are the cause of 70% of failed expatriations, it is something that needs to be addressed early on.

For a newcomer, all this bureaucracy can be painful to manage. Especially when your employee needs to start his job.

That’s why Expat.cl can assist your employees in your visa process.

Our service encompasses all the types of visas available in Chile. We define with your employees and you the best visa for them and their family. We send them the detail of documents required for the visa, and we assist during the process. Once they get approved, we help them to perform the last steps required to obtain their ID card.

The visa process in 6 steps

  • Phone call or conference call using Skype to understand the situation and determine which visa is best

  • Your employees receive a guide explaining documents that need to be collected before coming to Chile (if needed), as well as a general explanation of the steps

  • We validate that the collected documents are correct and properly stamped to avoid any problem in the future.

  • When coming in Chile, we take care of having them translated by a translator approved by the Chilean immigration department.

  • We initiate the process and follow-up on a weekly basis

  • We go with your employees to the police department and the civil register office, to perform the last steps required to get the Chilean ID

The total duration of the process can range from 4 to 6 months. It takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks for immigration to register documents, then 2 to 3 months to obtain the visa. The last step takes a few weeks.

Your employees do not need to be in Chile during the whole process. However, they need to come once to initiate the process in Chile, as they will request a proof of entry. Once the visa is approved, they will need to be there to finalize the process.
