What do I need to know before moving to Chile?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Chile, they said...

"It is important to research the cost of living in Chile before moving, as it can vary greatly depending on the city and region. It is also important to familiarize yourself with the local language, as Spanish is the official language of Chile. Additionally, it is important to understand the culture and customs of Chile, as they can be quite different from those of other countries. It is also important to research the visa requirements for entering and living in Chile, as these can vary depending on the individual's nationality. Finally, it is important to research the healthcare system in Chile, as it can be quite different from other countries," said another expat in Chile.

"Finding a place that you like in Chile without having your feet on the ground and able to see everything sounds risky. What we did was put all of our US possessions in 20x20 container with a 6 month delivery date. Then we came with just a few suitcases, lived in temporary housing, and found our place by physically going out and investigating places we were interested in. Puerto Varas and Pucon are the two nicest places in the south of Chile that I can recommend. The expats who don't want to live in a big city like Santiago would do well to consider the beautiful, laid back but tasteful cities in the Lakes region," wrote a member who made the move to Puerto Varas, Chile.
