8 ARRIVING IN CHILE How to Get Here Over 20 airlines fly to Santiago from the major cities of Europe, the U.S. and Latin America. Many have daily flights. Airport:

9 Upon arrival all passengers must go through International Police and show their identifying documents (passport or National I.D. card) and a stamped visa. Before going through Immigration, nationals of Canada, the U.S., Mexico and Australia must pay a Reciprocal Tax, in reciprocatation of the compulsory fee charged to Chilean nationals for an entry visa to these countries. Next, follow the signs to the baggage carousels. You ll find free baggage carts along the way. Next, your luggage will go through inspection by Customs and the Agriculture and Livestock Service (SAG).

10 ARRIVAL IN CHILE Santiago REQUEST YOUR CÉDULA DE IDENTIDAD PARA EXTRANJEROS (ALIEN I.D. CARD) GO TO: Avenida Huérfanos 1570, corner of Manuel Rodríguez, Metro Estación Santa Ana. YOU SHOULD BRING: 1. A valid passport stamped with your resident s visa and the certificate of registration in the Registro de Extranjeros de Polícía Internacional (International Police Alien Register). 2. Payment Receipt for the I.D. Card. 3. A simple photocopy of the pages of your passport containing: a) passport holder s identification b) term of effectiveness of the passport and the issued visa c) date of entry into Chile (if the visa is consular) d) your Alien Registration Card

11 TRANSPORT FROM THE AIRPORT You have several alternatives for going from the Airport to Downtown Santiago, available 24/7. However, we recommend you use the Airport s official services, which should show you the proper identification. The Airport is serviced by a minibus shuttle service called Transfer. Each minibus can carry 9 passengers from the Airport to their respective destinations. Shuttle tickets can be purchased in the Airport Arrival area and cost around Ch$ The most direct and quickest service, but also the most expensive, is taking a taxi. The trip to downtown Santiago costs around Ch$ (roughly US$40). If you fail to request your I.D. card within 30 days of arrival, before you do so you will need to obtain a special authorization from the Immigration Department of the Interior Ministry or from the Regional Intendant s Office, or documentary proof of having been sanctioned.

13 Situated along South America s west coast, Chile s 2,485- mile territory traverses deserts, mountains, plains, forests, ice fields -- the bountiful resources for its major production activities, which include mining, livestock raising, agriculture, crop science, viticulture, fisheries, tourism and industrial development. CHILE Surface area: 756,096 sq km Population: 17,094,275 inhabitants Capital city: Santiago Language: Spanish

14 LIVING IN CHILE OFFICIAL CURRENCY: Chilean Peso (Ch$ or CLP). There are 1, 5, 10, 50, 100 and 500 peso coins, and five different denominations of banknotes: $1.000, $2.000, $5.000, $ and $ pesos. We recommend changing your money only in banks, money exchange houses and ATM machines. NEVER change money on the street. You will find ATM machines most everywhere and of easy access. You can use your credit card to make payments for all major services and for purchases in most shops. TIME ZONE: UTC/GMT - 4 hours.

15 SAFETY: Chile is the Latin American region s safest country. The national police or Carabineros are responsible for citizens safety on the streets and are positively perceived by most Chileans. In case a carabinero should ask you for I.D. (this is legal though rare in Chile), we recommend you carry with you at all times your National I.D. card or passport (or a copy of the latter). Never try to bribe a carabinero. TECHNOLOGY: Chile is very developed technologically and there are excellent Internet, Wifi and telephony services. ENERGY: The electric current is 220V, 50Hz. Devices built for 110V must be used with a transformer. Travel devices and portable computers generally have a high voltage transformer (110V-240V) that adapts to Chile s electric voltage.

16 LIVING IN CHILE Tourist Information TOURISM Chile offers great natural marvels in San Pedro de Atacama, Easter Island, Chilean Patagonia, Torres del Paine National Park, and much more, which attract growing numbers of international visitors. There are many alternatives suitable for all budgets: fishing lodges, cabins in the mountains, along the rivers and the sea, rafting, kayaking, trekking, mountain climbing, windsurfing, rock climbing, water skiing, outdoor motorcycling, etc. Chile has 32 National Parks, 47 National Reserves and 15 Nature Monuments for nature lovers to visit and enjoy.

Its Santiago main office is located at: Avenida Providencia 1550 (Metro Manuel Montt). OFFICE HOURS: Monday to Friday 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Saturdays from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

18 SANTIAGO The Capital Santiago was founded on February 12, 1541 at the foot of a hill called Huelén, today known as Cerro Santa Lucía, where there are footpaths, small squares, vista points and monuments. Santiago is located on a plain called Cuenca de Santiago, or Santiago watershed. It is also called Santiago de Chile and is the country s largest city. It is 543 meters above sea level and has a total surface area of 15,554 sq km. It is a hundred miles away from the coast and 40 kms from the Andes, in the Metropolitan Region, the most populous region of Chile. According to the latest census taken nationwide in 2002, the Metropolitan Region has a total population of 6,013,185. Today Santiago is a modern city of over 6 million inhabitants, the center of most of Chile s cultural, economic, industrial and business activities. Its geographic location is ideal -- just a little over an hour away are ski slopes in the mountains and beaches along the coast, for world-class skiing and surfing. Santiago houses the main bodies of the government and the business, finance and cultural entities that have shaped the history of both the city and the country. The exception is the National Congress, located in Valparaiso.

19 CLIMATE Santiago s climate is very similar to that of the Mediterranean. The spring and summer months are from September to March, when temperatures range from 17 C and 33 C (55 F to 96 F), and autumn and winter is from March to August, with temperatures from 0 C to 15 C (36 F to 59 F). Winter is the rainy season. In summer it is dry and hot, but at night the temperature drops down and is pleasantly cool, and it almost never rains.

20 LEISURE ACTIVITIES In Santiago The alternatives for enjoying one s free time in Santiago have expanded enormously these past few years. There are a variety of theaters and art galleries to visit, movie houses show the latest films from Hollywood and Europe, and there are also the Teatro Municipal s classical concerts and opera season. You don t have to buy expensive tickets to enjoy the visual arts, theater or music. There are small cultural centers, theaters and clubs where you can watch interesting shows, bars where local groups perform, and during the summer nights theater groups perform in the city parks and squares.

24 VIÑA DEL MAR Viña del Mar, also known as The Garden City, is in Chile s Valparaíso Region. It has many beaches and is a popular tourist destination, with a population of around 300,000. Viña is a growing and developing city. Valparaíso Region is the second most important in terms of universities and other institutions of higher learning. Its closeness to Santiago, which is a little more than an hour away by car or bus, makes Viña ideal for university students to live in. They see Viña as a modern and relaxed place to live and study.

25 LEISURE ACTIVITIES In Viña del Mar Aside from the many places you can visit in Viña and environs and its beaches, we recommend: Museo la Sebastiana (Pablo Neruda s house) Ferrari Valparaíso Telephone: Museo de Historia Natural de Valparaíso (Valparaiso Museum of Natural History) Palacio Lyon, Condell 1546 Valparaíso - Telephone: Jardín Botánico Nacional (National Botanical Garden) Camino el Olivar s/n Viña del Mar Telephone: Complejo Turístico Laguna Sausalito Subida Sausalito s/n Viña del Mar Telephone:

26 VALPARAISO The city of Valparaiso, declared a Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, is just beside Viña del Mar and considered a major port of Chile and South America. It is also the legislative capital because the Congress is located there. You can go on walks and visit several cultural and historical sites. For more information, visit:

28 HEALTH There is no malaria or cholera in Chile, so no special vaccination is required. However, we recommend you protect yourself from typhoid fever, polio, hepatitis and tetanus. If you will be in Chile for an extended stay, it will be a good idea to get vaccinated for Hepatitis B. If you plan to travel through rural areas, it could be advisable to be vaccinated against rabies. Be careful with tap water. Though it is potable, it may give you a stomach upset for the first few days. There is excellent medical care in Santiago, Viña and Concepción, and private clinics are world class. All private clinics accept credit cards as a guarantee. However, it is harder to get medical care from rural hospitals and emergency clinics. The three cities mentioned have an excellent network of pharmacies where you can find any medication you may need. Should you need antibiotic treatment, you will need to present a doctor s prescription.

30 CUSTOMS Chileans are accustomed to having three or four meals a day: breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner, with lunch and dinner as the main meals. Chileans like courtesy and are somewhat formal, although as a foreigner you will enjoy a certain degree of freedom from the usual rules of behavior. You must get used to greeting and being greeted. Men shake hands while women give other women and men a light kiss on the right cheek (just one), even if they have just met. Sometimes a handshake can be added to the ritual, the first time one is introduced. Goodbyes are done in the same way.

31 People greet each other with a Buenos días until midday, Buenas tardes from noon until around 8:00pm, and Buenas noches from 8:00pm on. To say goodbye, say Hasta luego or Adiós. To refuse an offer, No, gracias ; while a simple Gracias is understood as meaning Yes ( Sí, gracias ). Being up to 15 minutes late to a meeting is acceptable. However, buses and planes depart pretty much on time. In most offices formal wear (a coat and tie) is the required dress. Among colleagues and friends one moves on quickly from the formal usted to the informal tú, except in very formal situations. Young people (up to age 35) especially are addressed as tú. However, with much older people or VIPs, we recommend addressing them as usted, even if they address you in the informal tú.

32 CUSTOMS The speed with which Chileans talk may cause you some problems, or the slang they use, which isn t usually found in dictionaries.

33 HERE ARE SOME TYPICAL CHILEAN EXPRESSIONS: A PATA: To go somewhere on foot. AL TIRO: Right away, immediately. APESTADO: Angry, disgusted. ARRUGAR: Back out, change one s mind, desist. BACÁN: Amazing, fantastic. CACHAI: Understand, catch on. PIOLA: Someone who s laid back, has a good vibe. POLOLA POLOLO: A steady boyfriend or girlfriend. FOME: Boring

43 TIPS Transport TAXIS Make sure the meter is running and readily visible. Pay the fare indicated on the meter. The base rate in Santiago is Ch$250 plus Ch$150 for each 200 meters traveled (or for each minute of waiting). This means that each kilometer costs approximately Ch$750. For longer distances, negotiate a fixed fare with the cab driver. When you pay, count your change carefully and make sure you aren t leaving anything behind in the taxi. If you go out at night, try to call a radiotaxi; avoid flagging down a taxi on the street. Radiotaxis charge a bit more but offer safer and newer cabs, and should a problem arise, you can complain to the radiotaxi company. PUBLIC TRANSPORT Transantiago is Santiago s integrated public transport system, which has minibuses, large buses and the subway, or Metro. To be able to use the system you must have what s called a BIP card. The BIP card is a plastic prepaid fare card that looks like a credit card.

50 ACCOMMODATIONS Below are alternative accommodations to university residences: Shared Apartments According to your preferences and budget, you may decide to rent your own apartment or to share a rental with a roommate. Renting will make it easier for you to socialize with Chileans and other foreigners. In general it s a more affordable option and more flexible should you decide to move elsewhere. The cost depends on the location, size and quality of the venue. Rentals vary from US$170 to US$400 a month, all inclusive. In and you can find various alternatives. Renting an Apartment Renting your own apartment will give you more privacy, comfort and independence. Foreign students who wish to rent an apartment should make sure it s furnished. Aside from paying for rent, students must cover the following costs: Utilities (light, water, gas, phone) Common apartment building expenses One month s deposit (equivalent to one month s rent) Realtor fees, if any. Rent is paid directly to the landlord at the beginning of the month. For rentals of less than a month, a per-day rental rate will apply. For incomplete months towards the end of your stay, the rent will be prorated by the month.

51 Charges for common expenses cover the building s costs (repairs and maintenance, security, elevators, lighting, concierge, green areas, pool, etc.) and are compulsory for all building renters. In some cases they include water consumption (cold and/or heated) and central heating. Therefore they may vary from month to month. The amounts indicated below are averages. Consumption costs correspond to usage of water, gas, electricity, telephone (if included), TV cable (if included), Internet (if included). The landlord takes charge of paying the bills and charges the renter for them together with collecting the rent. To rent a furnished apartment, a deposit is required, normally equivalent to one month s rent, which will be refundable at the end of the rental period after subtracting any damages to or losses in the property. The total cost of an apartment rental for a one or two bedroom in a neighborhood such as Providencia, Las Condes or Vitacura ranges from Ch$ to Ch$ /month (US$600- US$1,000/mo.).

52 COST OF LIVING

53 Chile is comparatively more expensive than other Latin American countries. However, food staples, services, public transport and basic restaurants are considerably cheaper than in the industrialized countries. Fruits and vegetables are much more reasonably priced if bought in open markets instead of at a supermarket. Shopping in the Vega Central or Central Market is a pleasant experience. You should keep in mind that imported products are more expensive in Chile than in their countries of origin. The dollar and the euro constantly change in value relative to the Chilean peso.
