Chile – Internal Revenue Service and Chilean Registrar Office on Strike

Please be aware that the employees of the Revenue Service and Chilean Registrar Office are currently on strike. The Chilean Registrar Office’s strike will cause a delay in issuance of Chilean ID cards previously requested. Likewise, it will not be possible to obtain new Chilean ID Cards nor obtain certificates. The Internal Revenue Service strike makes it impossible to obtain a provisional Tax ID Number, a key identifier for companies to place incoming foreign employees onto local payroll.

The Registrar’s office strike is slated to run through Friday, November 11th, although it may continue for an indefinite period thereafter. The Internal Revenue Service strike is indefinite.

Emigra Worldwide will continue to monitor and provide updates as they become available.

What you need to do
Planning ahead

  • Employers in Chile with foreign employees who need to obtain documents or complete processes with these entities should be prepared for delays while the strike is ongoing and for a short time thereafter as any backlog of requests is cleared.
  • Contact your Emigra Worldwide attorney or representative for further details on how these updates may impact you or your client.
