Working and living in Chile – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Chile requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Chilean expat life. Living abroad in Chile raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Chile?ʺ, ʺIs there a local newcomer's club for me to join?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Santiago should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Chilean municipality in Valparaíso?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Chile is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Chile aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Chile. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from sports and leisure, to local infrastructure or culture and sights, up to housing & household. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺDo all Chilean shops and services shut down during summer vacation?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
