  1. Travelers declaration (C19 request): always, to all travelers. It must be done up to 48 hours before boarding.
  2. Requirement of homologation upon entry for non-resident foreigners: voluntary vaccination homologation to access a mobility pass.
  3. Request for diagnostic test before entering: recommended within 72 hours before the trip.
  4. Request for diagnostic test upon admission: it will be carried out randomly.
  5. Non-resident alien health insurance: always, with coverage for COVID-19.
  6. Prove economic solvency.
  7. Although the homologation of the vaccines is no longer a requirement to enter the country, it is essential to acquire the mobility pass in Chile. To obtain it, you must validate your vaccination schedule with the Ministry of Health in Chile. The document will allow you to enter a closed restaurant or a transfer on public transport, for example.
