This situation could happen to you anywhere in the world. Theft or loss are the most common causes, but don’t feel panic and try to act as soon as posible. Here we leave you what to do if your DNI or passport vanished in Chile:
Your first step is going to the investigative police office (PDI). In this place you must make a record and describe how the documents were lost.
Also you must bring 2 passport/ID size photos (4 x 3 cm) with you.
Once you have all the documents required you must go to the National Immigration and International Police Headquarters. The adress is Eleuterio Ramírez 852, Santiago. Keep in mind the schedule which is from monday to friday between 08:00 and 14:00. After carrying out the procedure you will recieve an official document from this institution.
Finally, you must take that document to the consulate of your country to get your new identification document.
