Currently, Chile travel restrictions include travel to Santiago. Entry restrictions
Chile has reopened its airport, non-resident foreigners will be allowed to enter Chile through Santiago Airport. Chile has suspended all direct flights from the UK.Entry requirements
From November 23, when Santiago Airport begins to allow foreign travelers to enter, all travelers (of all ages) will have to present three documents when boarding:
•A completed “Affidavit of Travelers” electronic form (available here and also known as a Sanitary Passport) prepared less than 48 hours before boarding;
•Proof of a negative result from a PCR result from a test taken within 72 hours prior to departure; and
•Proof of a health insurance policy that provides coverage for COVID-19 and related health issues during the traveler’s stay in Chile. Foreign residents of Chile and holders of diplomatic/official passports are exempt from the PCR and health insurance.
Non-resident foreigners entering Chile who were in a high-risk country at any time within 14 days prior to their travel to Chile will have to complete a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine upon entering Chile, even with a negative PCR test. Travelers in quarantine who undertake PCR test and receive a negative result within 72 hours do not need to remain in quarantine. After December 7, non-resident foreigners entering Chile with the three documents described above will no longer have to complete a 14-day quarantine. They will instead be subject to a 14-day “Period of Vigilance for Travelers.” During this period, travelers will have to report daily their location and health condition to the Health Ministry through a system that will be implemented for this purpose. (This platform will be launched in the coming days.)If you are planning to travel to Santiago at this time, it is recommended that you stay up to date on current restrictions and follow proper safety measures while in public.
