    • social security;

    • rental income from real estate;

    • long term contracts;

    • interest income;

Applicants should come to Chile as tourists first and then to change their status to a temporary resident by applying for Retirement or Income visa. Once application is filed person may remain in the country without need to renew visa, until the application process is concluded.

There is no requirement to be actually retired or be in the retirement age, just as with similar types of visas in other of our "retirement" destinations. Everyone, even young families with children can apply for this type of visa. The basic requirement is to have a documented regularly recurring income sufficient enough to support applicant's and his/her dependents' cost of living in Chile.
