Chile updates its entry requirements for travellers

Post available in: English

Chile’s health ministry has updated its “Protected Borders Plan” to protect non-resident foreigners and Chilean residents. As part of this plan, there are three levels of alert for the international border.

The country is at “Alert Level 1”, which does not enforce travel restrictions. However, there are a few measures to be considered.

Diagnostic tests will be carried out randomly at the entry point to Chile. Confirmed cases shall be isolated according to the general health regulations.

Passengers who are not residents in Chile are also required to show evidence of health or travel insurance that covers COVID-related medical care duration of their visit. Failure to produce this may result in being refused entry into Chile.

Although vaccine standardisation is voluntary, it is necessary in order to gain access to the “Mobility Pass”. The pass is always required to enter hotels, restaurants, theatres, and buses, among other tourism services. Once the request has been submitted, it will be approved or rejected within a maximum period of 48 business hours. A “Temporary Mobility Pass” will be issued for 96 hours if no response is received within that period.

If a tourist enters the country with a “Temporary Mobility Pass” and at the end of 96 hours, the homologation process is rejected, they can then take a PCR test that may be used as a replacement for a “Mobility Pass”.

Diagnostic tests will be carried out randomly at the entry point to Chile. Confirmed cases shall be isolated according to the general health regulations.
Passengers, not residents of Chile, must show evidence of health or travel insurance covering COVID-related medical care duration ofmtheir visit.
