The Chilean Ministry of Health has announced that non-resident foreigners are able to travel to the country if they have a mobility pass.

Key Points:

  • As of Oct. 1, non-resident foreign nationals are able to enter the country if they:
    • Fill out the sworn affidavit within 48 hours of departure to Chile.
    • Have proof of a negative PCR test conducted within 72 hours of departure to Chile and have a validated Mobility Pass.
    • Have proof of international health insurances that covers COVID-19-related medical expenses.
    • Take another PCR test at the destination airport.

Additional Information: Chilean citizens and foreign residents who do not have a valid mobility pass must quarantine for seven days upon arrival. Those with valid mobility passes must carry out a mandatory five-day quarantine. Transit hotels are no longer required in order to perform the five- or seven-day quarantine. Travelers may only enter and exit only the country through airports in Iquique, Antofagasta and Santiago. Foreign minors are exempt from the aforementioned mobility pass requirement.

BAL Analysis: The reopening of Chile’s borders will benefit companies throughout the world conducting business in Chile; travelers must make sure they follow the entry procedures described above. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
