Chile's Travel Restrictions

Here are Chile's travel restrictions as of October 1, 2021


Volcan Osorno from the Saltos de Petrohue 

Alert Level 1: where there is community transmission of known and controlled variants within the country, there is more information on their characteristics and health impact, and there is no new variant alert;
Alert Level 2: where there is a variant of concern without community circulation, or with an initial community circulation, and where the health authority determines that the country is prepared to respond to its prevention and control; and,
Alert Level 3: in the context of the appearance of a variant of concern without known community circulation within the country, where no further information is available or where a high health impact on the Chilean population is estimated despite the response of the health system.

According to the Alert Level in which the country is, different measures will be applied in terms of travel restrictions, quarantine or isolation, negative PCR test to board a means of transport with destination in Chile, among others, which are detailed below.

TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

 It is hereby provided that there shall be no travel restrictions during Alert Level 1.

It is hereby provided that in Alert Level 2 partial restrictions will be in place, with reduced flows of travel to and from destinations where the presence of a new variant of concern is confirmed or suspected, to be determined by resolution of the Ministry of Health.

In Alert Level 3, travel to and from destinations where the presence of a new variant of concern is confirmed or suspected, to be determined by resolution of the Ministry of Health, will be prohibited.


So to sum it all up - currently or in Alert Phase 1 - no vaccines, no PCR test to enter Chile. Random spot checks on the PCR test for incoming passengers. You still must complete the affidavit at C19.cl and have health insurance  Some land borders like between Peru and Chile still require the vaccines but not on flights into Santiago. Plus the overlords just lifted the outdoor mask mandate in the whole country.
