It’s definitily the final countdown now.
After getting flight tickets, issuing a new passport in a really short notice and gathering a long list of documents, last week I was kindly received by the Chilean Consul and got my work visa.
The consul is meeting every entrepreneur in person to make clear how important Startup Chile is for all of them and how happy they are in having us in Santiago for the next 6 months. He is also asking every team to do our best as Startup Chile advocates for Brazil and wishing us luck in our quest.
If you ever need a new Brazilian passport in a hurry this is what you have to do: get your flight tickets, your ID (RG and CPF or Driver’s Licence) and a Certidão de Quitação Eleitoral and go to Hugo D’Antola, 95 (Lapa de Baixo, São Paulo) before 7am (yes, there’s a waiting line). 5 week days later you can pick up your new passport.
