Customs Officers Strike in Chile

  • News

Abels have recently been advised by our agents in Chile, that customs officers continue to be on strike. The strike is about private pensions.

The strike effects both Chilean Customs, and the National Agricultural Department.

The strike will effect people moving household goods and personal possessions into and out of Chile.

The private pension scheme which is the cause of the strike was originally set up by General Augusto Pinochet back in 1981. The reason for the strike is that it has now been found that 90% of individuals on the pension plan will only receive $233 a month according to Fox News Latino. There is no clear idea when the strike will end.

For customers moving to or from Chile, please call your Abels customer liaison on their direct line or call head office on +44(0)1842 816600 or email
