Chile Often Revises Criteria For Visitors From Other Countries
The Protected Borders Plan in Chile has been modified by the Minister of Health in that country, Mrs. Maria Begoa Yarza Sáez, in order to safeguard both non-resident foreigners and Chilean citizens. According to this strategy, there are three different degrees of awareness for the border with other countries. At this time, Chile is at Alert Level 1, which indicates that there are no travel restrictions being enforced. However, there are several precautions that should be taken into consideration.
Visitors to Chile are need to fulfill the following conditions in order to go there at alert level 1:
Up to forty-eight hours before boarding, complete the “Travel Affidavit” form that may be found online by giving your contact information as well as your health and travel records. This form will verify your information by displaying a QR code for you to scan. It may be accessed at any time via www.c19.cl.
At the point of entrance into Chile, diagnostic exams will be carried out in a randomized fashion. Isolation procedures must be carried out on patients that have been isolated in accordance with the general health requirements.
Passengers who are not permanent residents of Chile are required to provide documentation that they have health insurance or travel insurance that covers medical treatment associated with COVID for the length of their trip. In the event that you are unable to present this, you can be denied entry into the country.
Even though complying with the immunization standards is completely optional, doing so is essential in order to get a Mobility Pass. This card is necessary at all times to enter hotels, restaurants, and theaters as well as to board buses and participate in other tourist-related activities. After the request has been put in, the decision to grant or deny the request will be made within a maximum of forty-eight hours of business time. In the event that no answer is received within the allotted time, a temporary mobility pass valid for 96 hours will be given.
If a tourist enters the country with a Temporary Mobility Pass and the homologation process is rejected after 96 hours, the tourist will have the opportunity to take a PCR test that may be used as a replacement for a Mobility Pass. This opportunity will only be available if the tourist entered the country legally.
The cities of Santiago, Iquique, Antofagasta, and Punta Arenas all have airports specifically for international travelers, allowing them to enter Chile. Land borders, such as Paso Rio Don Guillermo, Paso Futaleuf, Paso Huemules, Paso Jeinimeni, Paso Monte Aymond, and Paso Los Libertadores, are another option for those looking to get into the country.
