Once your immigration benefit has been granted, you will have 30 days to schedule an appointment to obtain your ID card at the Registro Civil e Identificación.
You will have to wait approximately 10 working days to be able to download your Estampado Electronico within Chile.
If your Residencia Temporal permit was granted outside Chile, you will not be able to obtain an identity card. You will have to go to the Registro Civil e Identificación office with your Identification Document and printed Estampado Electrónico.
Down below, you will find a step-by-step guide to verify if you are eligible to obtain your ID card and schedule your appointment.
Go to registrocivil.cl and click on Aquí in Atención Extranjeros, as shown in the next image.
Then, select the option Primera Cédula or Renovar Cédula.
If it is your First ID card, you must enter Passport number (if it starts with 0 you must not enter it).
If you are renewing your Identity Card, you will have to select the option Renovar Cédula and enter your Run number with the verification digit.
If you are eligible to obtain an ID card, the following message will appear:
Click on Reserve su hora aquí.
