The Immigration Department in Santiago, Chile has recently collapsed, causing significant delays with immigration processes, such as in decisions, resolutions, permits, visas, etc.  Visa and cedula record procedures can now take up to a whole day, when previously it was completed in a matter of 2-3 hours.

Employers should be aware of the delays when processing applications in Chile and consider enough lead time to complete the process.
