Can You Travel To Chile?

Entry prohibited to all non-resident foreign nationals - who in the last 14 days have been in the United Kingdom. Direct UK-Chile flights have been suspended until further notice.

Upon arrival in Chile, all travellers will have to undergo a PCR or antigen test, even when passengers can present a negative PCR test result.

Any person who tests positive will be transferred to a Residencia Sanitaria (quarantine hotel) together with their close contacts.

Chilean authorities are currently prohibiting all non-essential overseas travel to Chileans and resident foreign nationals. There will be some exceptions that must be requested via the Comisaria Virtual website.

All travellers (including Chileans, resident and non-resident foreign nationals) must complete a mandatory 10-day quarantine on arrival in Chile. This can be shortened to 5 days once the passenger has undergone a PCR test with a negative result.

Non-resident foreign nationals with special entry permits must comply with the following:

  • negative PCR test, taken not more than 72 hours before boarding their flight to Chile
  • a declaration form Pasaporte Sanitario, completed before entry. This will generate a QR-code by separate email, which must be shown at entry. Health authorities at Santiago Airport may require completion of a follow-up email form for 14 days from the arrival date
  • health or travel insurance that covers COVID-related medical care up to a minimum of US $30,000 for the duration of your visit

Local Measures
Local authorities are frequently moving municipalities (comunas) back and forward through the quarantine Stages Plan (Paso a Paso). You should check for further details on the Chilean Government Paso a Paso website.

There are two curfew regimes depending on the public health situation and the numbers of vaccinated residents in each region. One curfew is from 10pm to 5am and the other from midnight to 5am (regions with less of 150 active COVID-19 cases and more than 80% vaccinated residents). You should check this information with local health authorities or on the Ministry of Health website, which is updated daily.

Mobility rules and permitted numbers for gatherings will vary depending on whether you hold a mobility pass (Pase de Movilidad) which is granted when you are fully vaccinated in Chile and the 'Paso a Paso' stage of the area.

Individuals that wish to pass the sanitary cordons must obtain a “Salvoconducto” permit and a “Health Passport” (“pasaporte sanitario”) (under “viajeros regionales” for residents or “viajeros regionales” for foreign visitors), at least 24 hours before.

Travelling To Chile FAQs

Advice and answers from the Corona Test Centre Team

What do the three colours of the UK’s ‘Traffic Light System’ for travel mean?

  • Red: You must pay for a 10-day stay in a managed quarantine hotel, as well as taking a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test) and two PCR tests upon return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8).
  • Amber: You will need to quarantine for 10 days, as well as taking a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test), and two PCR tests on return to the UK (Day 2 & Day 8). When you return to the UK,  you can take a test on Day 5 (Test to Release) to leave quarantine early.
  • Green: You will not need to quarantine on return, but you must take a pre-departure test (a Fit to Fly test), and a PCR test on return to the UK on Day 2.


How will the government decide which countries go on the green, amber or red lists?

Countries are assigned to the three lists, based on a range of Covid-19 health metrics, which include figures on population vaccination, infection rates and prevalence of variants. The different traffic light colours indicate the risk in each destination and the associated tests and quarantine periods required. Lists are reassessed every three weeks, to account for changes in each country’s COVID-19 situation.

Will I need a PCR Fit to Fly Certificate to travel to

Chile

?

The PCR test is the gold standard for testing coronavirus and so is recommended for travel to all countries. For Chile, only PCR Fit to Fly Certificates are accepted.

Will I need an Antigen Fit to Fly Certificate to travel to

Chile

?

The PCR test is the gold standard for testing coronavirus and so is recommended for travel to all countries. For Chile, only PCR Fit to Fly Certificates are accepted. You will not be able to use an Antigen Fit to Fly Certificate to enter Chile but you will be able to use one to return to the UK.

Will I need a Day 2 test or Day 2 and 8 when I return to the UK?

Chileis currently on the red list, this means that you will need a Day 2 PCR test and a Day 8 PCR test. You will need to buy this before you travel to the UK and use the reference code on your passenger location form. You can book these tests online, but you will also have to arrange accommodation at a government chosen hotel on your arrival into the UK. Please note that the travel restrictions are subject to change at very short notice.

I’m vaccinated, what tests do I need?

Chile is currently on the red list. Even though you are vaccinated, you will still need a Day 2 PCR test and a Day 8 PCR test. You will need to buy this before you travel to the UK and use the reference code on your passenger location form. You can book these tests online, but you will also have to arrange accommodation at a government chosen hotel on your arrival into the UK. Please note that the travel restrictions are subject to change at very short notice.

Can I enter

Chile

with a double vaccination certificate?

Chile does not accept vaccination as an entry requirement and so you will need to provide a PCR Fit to Fly Certificate

What happens if I have visited another country before flying back to the UK from

Chile

?

The government advice for passengers travelling from Chile is that if you have visited another country in the 10 days before you arrive in the UK that is a higher risk than Chile, you must follow the travel guidance for the highest risk country you visited.

What else will I need to return to the UK?

For all countries, including Chile, you will need to take an Antigen Fit to Fly test before departing for the UK. This can be bought at Corona Test Centre’s to take with you on your travels.
