Chile has extended its border closure through the end of June to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, including virus variants.

Key Points:

  • Chilean citizens and residents are not allowed to travel abroad unless approved by Chile’s Virtual Police Station.
  • Non-resident foreign nationals are banned from entering the country until at least June 30.
  • Exceptions can be requested online but will only be available for special cases such as needing to travel for medical treatment, departing Chile without the intention to return or humanitarian reasons.

Additional Information: All existing COVID-19 related restrictions remain in place and will continue to be enforced. This extension follows the guidelines set in the original border closure posting.

BAL Analysis: Chile will continue to enforce its strict entry and travel restrictions until at least June 30. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
