Chile Update


To keep you informed regarding the measures that the Chilean government has issued due to the advance of COVID-19 in our country, we detail below two important actions to take into consideration:


1. On March 31st was communicated the government's decision to extend the quarantine for seven more days. The total quarantine will be maintained in six communes of the Metropolitan Region, which are Lo Barnechea, Vitacura, Las Condes, Ñuñoa, Providencia and Santiago.


This measure is safeguarding the health of citizens, but that does not mean that supply or basic services will be affected.


To circulate you must request the corresponding permit on the Carabineros de Chile website https://comisariavirtual.cl/


Today the validity of national ID for foreigners was extended by one year. Only in the following cases:

a. Foreigners who have applied for an extension of the visa before the expiration of the same during 2019.


b. Foreigners who have applied for Permanent Residence before the expiration of their previous visa during 2019.


  • If your Chilean ID expired in 2019 and you are among the previous options, it will be valid until 12.31.2020;

  • If your Chilean ID expires during 2020, it will be valid for 1 more year;

  • If you did not make an application for a visa extension or PEDE before the expiration of your visa, contact your HRS consultant to see your options.
