On June 1, 2008, Carmona was bought by Serie A side Reggina. He made his debut abroad on 14 September, starting and playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–1 draw against Torino. Carmona appeared in 32 matches during the campaign (being mostly used as a holding midfielder), which ended in relegation.
Carmone was Chile's youngest player at the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship in the Netherlands where he showed some glimpse of talent in Chile's opening game, a 7-0 win against Honduras. Two years later, he captained Chile to the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup where he played in the 3-0 win against Canada, 3-0 win against Congo, 4-0 win against Nigeria and 1-0 win against Austria; Chile eventually were bronze medallists at the end of tournament.
His performances in Toulon won him a spot in Chile's starting 11 for two World Cup Qualifying (South Africa 2010) games - away victories against Bolivia (2-0) and Venezuela (3-2), starting on both occasions as the team's only defensive central midfielder.
On February 6, 2013, against Egypt, Carmona scored his first goal for the national team in a 2-1 victory for the Chilean team.
