PLAN TO TRAVEL TO CHILE: PROTOCOLS FOR FOREIGN TOURISTS.
Good news! During all this time we have been preparing to stop traveling to Chile being a dream and become a plan again. Hence, as of November 23, you will be able to visit our country again, always complying with the new Protocol for Foreign Tourists.
Because your safety is our priority, we invite you to inform yourself and learn about our “Travel to Chile” plan.
What should you take into consideration to travel to Chile?
From midnight on Monday, November 23, those who arrive by air to the Arturo Merino Benitez Airport will be able to enter the country. Entry will take place in compliance with strict health measures to protect the health and security of both tourists and nationals.

-During the first two weeks of the opening of this border, between November 23 and December 7, foreigners coming from high-risk countries, according to the WHO classification, will have to keep a 14-day quarantine in the country.

– All foreigners entering the country must comply with the country’s sanitary measures such as the use of masks, prohibition of movement in quarantined communes or respect for curfews.
Protocols and security measures for each sector
Not only tourists must observe a protocol. To guarantee both your safety and the safety of service providers, several specific protocols are being implemented in Chile for each sector of the tourism industry. Hotels, Parks, Restaurants, Campsites, Museums, and even beaches must follow specific biosecurity measures which will maintain the necessary safeguards to prevent a potential COVID 19 contagion.
