Chile has updated entry requirements for foreign travelers

Chile’s international borders are open to vaccinated non-resident foreign nationals who meet several requirements under the Chilean government’s current COVID-19 plan.

The Ministry of Health of Chile has updated the Protected Borders document for both non-resident foreigners and Chilean residents themselves. By, there are three levels of combat readiness within the international borders of the country. Chile is currently at alert level 1, which does not include travel restrictions. However, some restrictive measures exist.

Under Level 1, travelers to Chile are required to:

– Fill out an online Travel Affidavit no later than 48 hours before boarding, providing contact information, as well as health and itinerary details. This form will display a verification QR code.

– Pass a diagnostic test at the port of entry in Chile (optional). If an infection is detected, the arrival will be isolated by the general sanitary rules.

– Foreigners must also present proof of travel medical insurance that covers COVID-related medical care for the duration of the trip. Failure to provide this document may result in denial of entry into the country.

While vaccination is voluntary in Chile, it is required to obtain a “sanitary pass”. A pass is required to visit hotels, restaurants, and theaters, as well as to travel on buses and receive other tourist services. The submitted request will be approved or rejected within a maximum of 48 business hours. If no response is received within this period, a Temporary Movement Pass valid for 96 hours will be issued.

If a traveler enters a country with a temporary travel pass and after 96 hours the request for a permanent travel pass is denied, they will have the opportunity to undergo a PCR test that can be used as a replacement for a travel pass.

Tourists can enter Chile through special airports in Santiago, Iquique, Antofagasta and Punta Arenas. Entry is possible across land borders including Paso Rio Don Guillermo, Paso Futaleufu, Paso Huemules, Paso Janemeni, Paso Monte Aymond and Paso Los Libertadores.
