Residency rules

The new law is expected to be unveiled in a couple of months.

The plan does not discuss autonomy for the island, and some indigenous people have criticised it for not going far enough.

But there is widespread local support for a proposal to limit migration from the mainland - by introducing rules of residency.

Some 4,000 people live on Easter Island and about 1,800 of them are part of the Rapa Nui community with links to the original inhabitants.

The rest of the population is from mainland Chile, or other countries.

Easter Island is 3,700km (2,300 miles) from the coast of mainland Chile and is one of the most isolated places in the world.

Currently any Chilean can live on Easter Island, although they cannot buy land.
