I am flying in to Santiago to check out the country for a possible retirement on a Tourist Visa. I thought about the Rentista Visa too. I will be in need of storing valuable small assets that I could not leave behind, and don't want to fly to Sydney, AU just to drop them in a box at my bank. I know I can't get a bank account, but how about a really secure box elsewhere? Also, do you have a link to what I might have a problem bringing in? People collect gold & silver and it is a real pain when you decide to move out of the country. "What ever you do, don't try to take gold & silver through Mexico!" They seize it & drop you in jail!
