DEFINITE RESIDENCE

PERMANENT RESIDENCE

Definitive Residence is the permission granted to foreigners to reside indefinitely in Chile and develop any lawful activity in the country.

Foreign citizens, both holders and dependents, who have a valid Resident Visa and have not stayed more than 180 days outside Chile during the last year of the visa, may apply for this permit.

To apply for permanent residence, you must have possessed for at least two years the Visa Subject to Contract or at least one year the Temporary Visa. Those who have obtained the Student Visa for at least two years may also request it, in which case they must prove that they have gained a degree or a secondary education license from a Chilean institute.
