Immovable Property in Border Areas

The Ministries, agencies and institutions of the State Administration, whether centralized or decentralized (including Municipalities), must request prior authorization from DIFROL to sell, lease or grant concessions, permits or authorizations and, in general, enter into any transaction or contract in connection with national assets for public use, fiscal assets, or that are part of the estate of said institutions, that are fully or partially located in border areas of the national territory.

This obligation only affects the immovable properties located in the border area that belong to the Treasury or other State institutions. The sale, lease, as well as the entering into other transactions and contacts in connection with immovable properties belonging to individuals, located in the border area, are not subject to the prior authorization of DIFROL. Said prior authorization is a requirement for transactions and contracts referring to public agencies as well as to individuals, whether Chilean or foreign.

The Application must be formulated by the institution responsible for the administration of the immovable property, adhering to one of the following procedures:

Acquisition of Rights to Immovable Property located in the Border Area and in Bordering and Coastal Strips.

Acquisition of Immovable Property located in the Border Area and in Bordering and Coastal Strips, by foreigners.
