So, I live in Peru most of the time. I've crossed the border into Arica, Chile, and returned to Peru the next day--and received an additional 90 days in Peru.
My question is, Does this work in Chile, too?!?
I'll be living in Nireguao, Chile (due east from Puerto Aysen)--almost in the middle of nowhere. LOL
I'm thinking (and hoping) that near the end of my 90 days in Chile that I can perhaps cross into Argentina, between Coyhaique Alto, Chile, and Aldea, Argentina, for a day or two (or even less) and then return and get a Tourist Card for an additional 90 days.
In part, this is appealing because I don't know where or how far from my residence the nearest official office might be--where I could simply pay my $100 and get a new card. Does that make sense?
And, yes, I'm aware of the $160 fee in Argentina, etc. And that I have to pay the fee in advance. I plan to travel to Argentina a few months later, sooooo ... the $160 is fine (so to speak).
Not to beat a dead horse, but ... is the crossing at Balmaceda "better"?!?! For whatever reason. Either one would be "doable" for me. 50-60-70 miles from where I'll be living.
In advance, thank you!!!!!!!
