The Chile Tourism Board on Monday announced that the country will officially reopen its borders to vaccinated foreign travelers starting on Oct. 1 for the first time since the Spring.
Non-resident foreigners have not been allowed to enter Chile since April 5, with Chileans and permanent residents required to quarantine for 7-days should they reenter the country.
While travelers will not be able to enter the country, Chile has set a series of mandatory requirements for inbound visitors that include:
- A “Traveler’s Affidavit” form that must be completed 72 hours prior to travel.
- Mandatory travel insurance with a minimum coverage of $30,000 USD.
- Negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of travel.
- Proof of full vaccination.
- A mandatory five-day isolation period at an address of their choice.
Chile is also placing some mandatory post-travel requirements for visitors, including self-reporting of health status, sharing current location, and testing over a two-week period after leaving Chile.
According to the Chilean Ministry of Health, 87% of the population in Chile has been vaccinated.
