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.
