I will be travelling to Chile from India next month. I have a work contract with one employer for two years. Will it be possible to change employers legally once there? Assuming the next employer provides me with a work contract.
Can anyone share their experience with switching employers?
This can depend on the type of visa you have. With a subject to contract visa you would need to reapply for the visa if you change jobs after moving to Chile. I would recommend researching a temporary residence visa, as it is more flexible when switching jobs, but is only valid for 1 year. Have a look at the guides on work permits and visas to read a bit more about your options.
I agree with @Wian, you'll need to obtain a new work visa and sign a new employment contract with the new employer. Changing employers in Chile can have implications for your legal status, so it's recommended to consult with an immigration lawyer or the Chilean immigration authorities before making any changes.
