The Chilean government has reopened Chile’s borders for international travel and tourism as of October 1, 2021.
What to Expect
- Travelers to Chile who are neither Chilean citizens nor residents of Chile must obtain a “Mobility Pass” (Pase de Movibilidad), verifying that they have complete a full course of vaccination against COVID-19. Travelers vaccinated outside of Chile may obtain a Mobility Pass here.
- The Mobility Pass must be obtained prior to arriving in Chile. Obtaining the Mobility Pass outside of Chile may take 2-3 weeks.
- Travelers must complete a 5-day quarantine at a private residence or hotel upon arrival in Chile.
- Chilean citizens or residents without a Mobility Pass must complete a 7-day quarantine at a private residence or hotel.
- Travelers must complete an online form with the Ministry of Health and complete a daily health survey for 14 days after arrival.
- Travelers (of all ages) will have to present three documents when boarding:
- A completed “Affidavit of Travelers” electronic form prepared less than 48 hours before boarding;
- Proof of a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours prior to boarding their final flight to Chile; and
- Proof of a health insurance policy that provides coverage for COVID-19 and related health issues during the traveler’s stay in Chile.
Travelers departing Chile with a valid Mobility Pass have no restriction from departing Chile. Travelers without a Mobility Pass who are Chilean citizens or residents of Chile must obtain a permit from the Comisaría Virtual in order to depart Chile.
Chile has maintained some of the strictest travel-related restrictions throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Until September 30, 2021, only Chileans and Non-Chilean residents were permitted to enter Chile. Current guidance is subject to change based on the local spread of the virus.
