Chile simplifies rules for tourist entry from September 1

Chile has again relaxed its entry requirements for tourists during the pandemic. One of the most enduring protocol countries in all of Latin America has eliminated the requirement to file the c19 declaration, also known as the Traveler Affidavit Form, effective September 1.

The mobility pass, which is required as proof of vaccination or negative test for Covid19 to enter bars, restaurants and other attractions across the country, will also only be replaced with proof of vaccination, Chilean tourism authorities said on Friday (12). .

In addition to the passenger’s identity card, such as an ID card or passport, the only document required to enter the country is the vaccination certificate. Vaccines from Janssen, CoronaVac (Sinovac), Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, Sinopharm, CanSino and SputnikV are recognized by the local government.

It is important to emphasize that it will no longer be necessary to ratify the vaccination certificate a procedure that was until then required for the Brazilian document to be recognized on Chilean territory. Also from September 1st, the certificate issued in Brazil will be recognized by the local authorities.

Unvaccinated travelers over the age of 18 must present a negative PCR test taken less than 48 hours prior to travel to enter Chile. Persons under the age of 18 are no longer subject to any protocol due to Covid19.

For travelers up to August 31, the old rules still apply.

And Easter Island?

Different rules apply to entering the Chilean Easter Island: 24 hours before boarding, a PCR test must be carried out, which must be negative.

In addition, the issuance of the Mobility Passport, the completion of the FUI (Single Entry Form), a roundtrip ticket and tourist reservations at a SERNATURapproved location, a sevenday health surveillance and the completion of an antigen test are mandatory upon arrival on the island. If the result is positive, a sevenday quarantine should be ordered.
