CHILE

Updated 19 November 2020  

  • Borders are open for international travelers (leisure and business) from 23 November 2020.
  • The only permitted point of entry is Santiago Airport (SCL – Arturo Merino Benitez) – Land border crossings between Chile and Argentina or Bolivia are suspended until further notice.
  • Travel insurance that covers COVID-19 issues is mandatory.

PCR test:

  • Passengers must present a negative RT-PCR test certificate (Molecular Test) issued no more than 72 hours before their arrival in Santiago (SCL); to avoid a 14-day quarantine. 
  • Passengers must present their negative PCR test results as well as their proof of travel insurance at their country of origin when checking-in for their flight.
  • These test result might also be requested upon arrival in Santiago Airport (SCL)  


Documents:

  • All passengers must fill out the official health affidavit online form within 48 hours prior to the scheduled flight where the PCR test results will need to be uploaded. The form requires a final destination address.
  • If the passenger is connecting in Santiago to another destination, the airline ticket serves as a “permit” to travel to that final destination. E.g. Miami-Santiago-Calama allows the passenger to travel to Calama (Atacama).
  • In the case of multiple destinations, an additional permit for other destinations must be requested through a dedicated portal provided by the police. The website is currently available only in spanish but can be automatically translated by most internet browsers. Please note that travel is only permitted to and between zones labeled as stage 3 (yellow/preparation), 4 (blue-initial opening) and 5 (light blue-advanced opening).
