Chile is ready to welcome travelers from around the world beginning on October 1st after over a year and a half with closed borders and restrictions. The modification of the country’s Protected Borders Plan will allow entry to all fully vaccinated non-resident foreigners who meet the requirements. Visitors will be able to enter through dedicated airports in Santiago, Iquique or Antogagasta.
To enter Chile, all travelers will have to complete a series of mandatory requirements, which include:
- Completion of the “Travelers’ Affidavit” form 72 hours prior to travel (www.c19.cl). The electronic form includes contact information, medical history, and previous travel history.
- Travel insurance to cover any medical expenses related to Covid-19 with a minimum coverage of $30,000 USD for health benefits.
- A negative Covid-19 PCR test performed within 72 hours prior to travel.
- Proof of Covid-19 vaccine, which will allow visitors to obtain the Mobility Pass issued by the Chilean Ministry of Health. The pass can be requested at mevacuno.gob.cl.
- Upon entry, all visitors must complete a five-day isolation period at an address of their choice and presented on the country’s entry form, which may be a hotel or a residence.
In addition to this mandatory five-day isolation, every person must comply with the traveler’s follow-up process, which is done over a period of 14 days and consists of daily self-reporting of health status, current location, and testing via email.
