Chile has imposed new travel and quarantine requirements to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Key Points:

  • Under a change that took effect Dec. 31, anyone traveling to Chile, including Chilean nationals, must quarantine for 10 days. During quarantine, travelers will receive emails from the Ministry of Health with information about what to do if they experience COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Travelers can take a COVID-19 test on the seventh day of quarantine and can end their period of isolation early if they test negative.
  • Under a change that took effect Jan. 7, anyone traveling to Chile, including Chilean nationals, must have proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of departing their final flight for Chile. The only exception is for travelers younger than two years of age.
  • Travelers must also compete an electronic “Affidavit of Travelers” (also called a “Sanitary Passport”) within 48 hours of departing. The form is available here: After completing the form, travelers will receive a QR code that they use when boarding their flight.
  • Foreign travelers must also provide proof of health insurance that covers COVID-19-related expenses.

Analysis & Comments: The quarantine and testing requirements will add to the time it takes to travel to Chile and make traveling within Chile more difficult at this time. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
