Official residents completing their mission

Who is this permit for?


This subcategory is aimed at those official residents who have completed their duties in a mission recognized by the Chilean State. This permit, granted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, expires thirty days after the end of the official missions carried out in the country.

Before this period expires, the official resident may request a Permanencia Transitoria for former official residents as holder or dependent.

This permit will be granted automatically if the person is a national of a country that does not require prior authorization or visa. It will come into force once the official residence has expired and must be requested on the SERMIG’s Portal de Trámites Digitales by entering to “Permanencia Transitoria para Ex-Residentes Oficiales”.

If you are a national of a country to which Chile requires prior authorization or visa, you must apply for such document under the conditions of Art. 27 of Law No. 21.325 of Migraciones y Extranjería.

The Permanencia Transitoria permit shall be valid for a period of up to 90 calendar days, which may be extended. The above is without prejudice to the provisions of Sections 64 and 65 of Law No. 21.325, referring to the change of immigration category of official residents and dependents, respectively.

Where should I apply for a previous authorization or visa to remain as a Permanencia Transitoria holder once the Residencia Oficial (Official Residence) has expired?

If the interested person applies for it without having left the national territory at the end of their Residencia Oficial, they may request the authorization at the Dirección General de Asuntos Consulares of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
