Chile

If your company is sending employees to Chile—Fragomen is here to help. Working closely with our Local Advisors in Chile, we provide the immigration strategies and support you need to get your employees on the ground as quickly as possible. 

Chilean law provides many solutions to help employers of foreign nationals. These range from temporary, nonimmigrant visas to permanent residence. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility, and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.

  • The maximum period of consecutive stay for visa nationals under the Tourist Visa is 90 days. However, foreign nationals should secure a Special Work Permit for Tourists if their stay exceeds 14 days, or if they intend to conduct any activities beyond attending meetings, or receiving training in a classroom, meeting setting, or through observation (not hands-on).
  • The Work Contract Visa is typically used for assignments of more than two years, or those where the foreign national becomes an employee of a local Chilean company.
  • The Temporary Residence for Work Purposes Visa is another work authorization option that is granted for one year and allows the holder to change employers and perform unlimited work activities.


Note that documents not issued in English, French, Italian, Portuguese or Spanish must be translated by a local, professional translator.
