Requirements for non-resident foreigners entering Chile

  • Proof of a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before boarding. On flights with layovers, the last boarding point is considered.
  • Complete the “Traveler’s Sworn Statement” electronic form up to 48 hours before boarding, in which you must provide your contact information, health and location history. This form will include a QR code as a means of verification. It can be completed at www.c19.cl

The use of a face mask is mandatory in urban or populated areas, public roads, paid public or private transportation, elevators, enclosed areas, and common areas. This regulation is enforced throughout the domestic territory.

Physical distancing
People must keep a 1-meter minimum distance from each other.

Hygiene, cleaning, and disinfecting
Regularly wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. All establishments should have hand sanitizer gel and hygiene, cleaning, and disinfecting protocols available.

Observe signage instructions stating capacity and health regulations posted in enclosed areas inside each establishment.
