Chile Updates Entry Requirements for Foreign Travelers

Chile’s ministry of health has updated its “Protected Borders Plan” to protect both 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.

Under “Alert Level 1,” visitors to Chile must fill in the “Travel Affidavit” form online up to 48 hours prior to boarding, providing contact information and health and travel records. This form, available at, will display a QR code as a means of verification.

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 resident 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 standardization is voluntary, it is necessary in order to gain access to the “Mobility Pass.” The pass is always required to enter hotels, restaurants, theaters and to get on 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. If no response is received within that period, a “Temporary Mobility Pass” will be issued for 96 hours.

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”.

Visitors can enter Chile through dedicated airports in Santiago, Iquique, Antofagasta and Punta Arenas. Visitors may also enter the country via land borders, including Paso Rio Don Guillermo, Paso Futaleufú, Paso Huemules, Paso Jeinimeni, Paso Monte Aymond and Paso Los Libertadores.
