What is the Avg cost of living in Valparaiso, Chile for one single person.
I will be taking 1 bed room unit.
And also, How much shall i negotiate for senior analyst role so that i can save 1K USD per month.
Health insurance for a family (of 3)
Approximate tax brackets
I have been offered a $44.000 annual salary and I have a family of 3.
Where I needed to go, but I cooperated with gas, endless toll bridges, food during the trip.
Metro. Rental for 15 days US 450 - 530 ( Airbnb takes a chunk in Comission ) , paid in advanced.
Expenses on Arrival included : 2 Airport transfers CPL $ 8300 each, cook simple things. Supermarket : 3
Gallons of water, 5 lts milk, juices, daily fresh breads, fresh tomatoes, lettuce, dz. eggs, ham, cheese, salami ( twice, 1/4 each time), 2 bottles liquid Yoghurts, , small box mash potatoes, beef steaks, 6 prepared meals, 1 kL rice., bottle pisco sour, chicken to cook, etc., etc. & some indulgences... few lunch restaurants meals, few dinners, few drinks, some coffee
& tarts, or ice cream, etc. Part of this included 4 days traveling : money for gas, tolls, food on the road. My meals included breakfast, lunch & dinner. I also used the Metro around 10 times & had a local cell phone, & did small shopping at H & M. All this CPL $ 660.000 or us$ 1000/ one person for 15 days, end of Feb, almost mid March 2019. One thing there, money goes quickly & you find yourself constantly breaking into a new cpl $ 20.000 bill. Exchange is around one dollar ~ 640., or Cpl $ 1000 = us$ 1.50 Which was corroborated with other purchases made by c. card. So, when you see a price in CPL, add a 50% more to get the price into dollar . This, did not included “ any” extravaganza, performances, hotels, or any thing lavish .... Hope his helps anyone to get a picture .
Schools here are insanely expensive, for my eight-year-old about 1.300.000 per month. So Anonymous you can live on 3M a month but you will save nothing. My rent is about 1.250.000 in Vitacura with expenses.
I am from India and I got an offer to move to Santiago for an indefinite term. They offered me a residence visa subject to contract with all medical benefits. I am married and having a kid 2.5yrs old. My wife works in a bank and eventually will look for a job once we move there.
My company has offered me CLP 34,80,000/month before tax. The liquid salary as per their calculation is CLP 30,00,016. Also they have offered 2 tickets to travel to India in a year. There is also yearly bonus of 1.4 times of monthly gross and joining bonus as of monthly gross. 13 UF will be also provided for my kid's education.
Is this enough to live a good lifestyle? I do not like much travelling. But keeping all things in mind like, fooding, lodging, kid's education etc, can I save CLP 20,00,000/month?
