Chile reopens its borders

As of November 23, Chile will reopen its borders, which had been closed since March 17 due to the pandemic.

In this first phase, the borders will open only through the International Santiago Airport SCL, while, for the rest of the access areas to the country, the entrance will remain restricted.

Who can enter Chile?

Passengers from all over the world, without any restriction in terms of the epidemiological situation of the place they come from. However, there is a protocol to be followed that includes some measures:

  • Before traveling to Chile, visitors must complete a sworn statement with information such as place of origin and destination, as well as their current health condition and any symptoms attributable to Covid-19.
  • Travelers must present a negative PCR test, with no more than 72 hours after its completion, issued by a laboratory recognized by the local health authority.
  • Foreigners coming from countries with high community circulation of Sars-Cov2 (see here) must, in addition to having a negative PCR test, a mandatory health insurance and a surveillance period, complete also a 14-days quarantine. This is valid between November 23 and December 7, 2020.
