The government recently announced that from 1st November 2021 vaccinated tourists will be able to travel to Chile!  As of the 1st November, the entry requirements are as follows:
  • Travellers will no longer be required to quarantine for 5 days upon arrival. Instead, upon arrival travellers will take a PCR test (it is our understanding that this is in the airport, free of charge) and will make their way to their hotel/airbnb via private transport/taxi to await the results. Once a negative result has been received (PCR results are currently taking 12/18 hours) they will be free to enjoy Chile!
  • Only fully vaccinated travellers are able to travel to Chile. Before their arrival, their vaccine must be validated on https://mevacuno.gob.cl/ and a ‘mobility pass’ will be issued. The government has stated that it may take up to a month to verify the vaccinations, and issue the pass. Once issued, entry to Chile must be made within 45 days.
  • Foreigners can only enter Chile via Santiago, Iquique or Antofagasta airport. At present, no land borders with Argentina are open. You will not be able to travel to Argentina with your camper
  • A negative PCR test must be taken 72 hours before your last flight departs to Chile.
  • Each traveller must have a valid travel insurance which includes any potential COVID related illnesses while in Chile with a minimum coverage of $30,000 USD.
  • The C19 declaration form must be completed 48 hours before arrival in Chile on www.c19.cl
Chile is a huge country, and travelling in a camper allows sustainable social distanced tourism, it really couldn't be any better, so we really hope your trip can go ahead as you planned. Rest assured, If you are unable to travel to Chile, all customers can postpone their original Camper booking and change the date to any future period (subject to availability). We will provide you with a special voucher valid indefinitely……you can even exchange the voucher with family or friends!
Before travelling to Chile, all foreign tourists must apply and obtain for the mobility pass before entering Chile. This can be done on https://mevacuno.gob.cl/ where you will either receive one of the following results:
  • Incomplete/Rejected - There was a problem with your application and you will be asked to provide more information to obtain the mobility pass
  • Valid - The mobility pass is valid, and has been approved. The pass has no expiry duration, and therefore can be used for your entire trip in Chile, however you must enter the country within 45 days of receiving the pass. After 45 days you will need to apply for another pass.
  • Temporarily Valid - If a person submits consistent vaccination background, but it cannot be verified by electronic means your mobility pass will still be issued which allows you to enter Chile as a tourist, however the mobility pass will only be valid for 30 days while in Chile. Should you wish to stay in Chile for longer than 30 days it is possible to validate your pass by performing an IgM/igG antibodies test at a clinic in Chile (we can provide details of how to do this simple and fast test in Santiago). You will then upload your results to prove you have antibodies, your mobility pass will be changed to 'valid' with an indefinite expiry date. As with the other pass you must enter the country within 45 days of receiving the temporarily valid pass. After 45 days you will need to apply for another pass.
