Immigration

Immigration is the most sensitive time in the period of expatriation. For this reason, we rely on a team of immigration and visa experts which allow us to efficiently coordinate and program the work start day for our assigned clients, without jeopardizing the Company nor the client, in case of a non-compliance of the established proceedings.

Our team will support your company in the elaboration of work contracts, letters and all the necessary documents to obtain work permits and visa applications in Chile or through the Consulate. We will also be tracking expiration dates, the timely renewal of immigration documents and the processing of the requirements when departing.

In just one step, the assigned persons have direct access to an immigration service that will support them with the production and collection of their personal background for a visa acquisition, work permits and personal Chilean documents, legalizations, notarized documents and translations. We either represent or accompany them in these presentations before the Administrative Authorities.

Visas

We offer services for a work visa application and acquisition for the Company’s executive, and visas for the accompanying partners or dependents. We also offer consulting in writing work contracts and legal documents, as well as obtainment of legal documents, records, identification, driver’s license and a bank account.

These procedures can be done before arriving to Chile in the country of origin’s Chilean Consulate and this would be the most efficient way to obtain a visa. We can also apply for a visa in Chile once the assigned person has arrived. This process takes more than 4 months.
