Hi everyone,

I'm a South African who's hoping to move to Chile this year. I hope to settle somewhere quiet in the Lakes District.

I'm seeking a peaceful, stable, non-violent country with beautiful scenery and a moderate climate. Chile seems to tick all the boxes!

As I'm employed and work remotely, I would be looking at the jubilado y rentista visa. So far my main worries are getting high speed internet, subjecting my dog to a very long flight and getting all of my documents correctly notarized, apostiled and translated!

I've been learning Spanish for a year and am looking forward to being able to master ser vs estar, para vs por and all of the verb tenses!

Best,
BJ

JR here. I'm thinking about spending some time in Valparaiso. Maybe a considerable amount of time. I'd like to hear from any artists and/or teachers living in the city, specifically writers and musicians. Or those who teach English language, or English literature courses.

And...any blues or groove jazz musicians in Valparaiso?? Are there gigs available?

Hello! I just moved to Valpo area at the end of January. I am from the US, originally from Los Angeles CA. I am an English teacher here, and I would love to meet some other expats who are living in the area 😃

Hello,\   
              I am currently living in Concepcion some 300 miles south of you in Valparaiso. If you ever get down here, contact me and we can meet for lunch. If there is any other way I may be of service to you, please feel free to contact me.

Hi everyone, 

If any of you guys living in Chile could give an estimate of your average internet speeds, it would be much appreciated :)

TIA,

BJ

My husband and I are considering the same thing in the same timeline.  Also looking for insights from those who have gone before us.

Hello,
My name is Patty. My husband and I are looking teach English abroad. I am an experienced Educational Software executive, my husband is in technology sales. We have decided that we want to embark on this adventure while we are still young enough to fully participate in the culture, the travel. We are, of course, anxious, but knowing there are others on the ground or on the same path is very encouraging.

I hope to learn from those who have gone before and perhaps provide guidance to others when we experiences to share.

Good day all.

I am a South African looking to relocate to the "lakes district". I am what South Africans would call a "dutchmen" and I have only now starting to learn Spanish. Although it would seem that the Spanish spoken in Chile is a bit different?
I work in the drawing (AutoCAD) and construction (civil, architectural, structural...) industry and one of the main questions would be where to start looking for employment and then cost of renting/buying property...

It would be helpful if anyone would be able to point me in the correct direction.

Kind regards,
Stephan Bronkhorst.

AoA Mr. Muhammed.

My Name is Muhammad Saeed Mirza and I am moving to Santiago, Chile on November 15th and I am highly interested in joining hand with good people for mutual benefits and success.
Please write me back on ***



Best Wishes,
