Can I engage in paid work as a holder of a Permanencia Transitoria permit?
If you are a holder of a Permanencia Transitoria permit you will not be able to engage in remunerated activities.
Exceptionally, you may apply to the Servicio Nacional de Migraciones (SERMIG) for authorization to engage in specific and occasional activities as personnel of public shows, sports events, lecturers, consultants, or technical experts, for which you will receive remuneration or economic benefits in Chile or abroad.
You may also engage in remunerated activities if you enter as an inhabitant of a border zone, only if the bilateral agreement with the bordering country so establishes (see terms in Article 54 of Law No. 21.325).
