410 North American Habits That I Traded InHi Rick, thanks for your interest and comment! Congrats to your son... Chile is an amazing place to travel and work. In terms of a visa, it depends on what country he is from. Citizens from the United States, for example, can enter Chile on a tourist visa and stay for three months, and any remaining visa paperwork can be done in Chile while he is here. Again, visa fees change depending on what country he is coming from. Visas are usually issued for one year, and he can stay in the country and travel until his visa ends, even if he is not working. However he can't take another job unless he changes the paperwork for his visa. The extranjeria website is the official government website that has all of the information, and you can check there for more details! ( Good luck to your son and happy travels!2015-12-11 19:03:00
