Children under two years of age are exempt from this requirement.

PCR test: The traveler must attach a negative result of a PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 to the Affidavit of Travelers. This negative test result may not be older than 72 hours from the taking of the sample until the departure time of the last flight with the final destination to Chile in case of entering by air. In case of entering by land, it may not be older than 72 hours from the taking of the sample to the entry into Chile. It will be required by the operator of the means of transport when boarding it, and by the health authority when entering the country. Children under two years of age are exempt from this requirement. If a person presents a persistent positive result due to having been infected with the virus in the last month, they can attach two positive PCR results, where the sampling of one must have been carried out up to 72 hours before shipment or entry and the other must have been made with more than 14 days of difference with the date of shipment or entry, but with less than a month from the same.

Sanitary measures when entering Chile

Strict Isolation at Declared Domicile

  • People with a Mobility Pass or validation (temporary and definitive) of the Minsal of vaccines received abroad (detail in point III of this document)

- 5 days of isolation: 120 hours from the sanitary customs control at the point of entry into the country.

  • People without a Mobility Pass or without validation of the Minsal of vaccines received abroad

- 7 days of isolation: 168 hours counted from the sanitary customs control at the point of entry into the country.

 

REQUIREMENTS:

  • All the cohabitants who are in the declared address to perform the isolation must also perform the same isolation, that is, no one can enter or leave the home during that period.
  • They must arrive at the declared address by private transport and directly from entering the country without the possibility of spending the night or interacting with other people. Collective public means of transport may not be used, including trains, buses, and airplanes. The transfer in minor public transport (taxis) or the use of private transfer companies that work in airports is allowed, for journeys of less than two hours under the strict sanitary protocol. In this case, you can only share a vehicle with the same group with which you traveled. In the event that the place of isolation is more than two hours from the point of entry into the country, the driver of the means of transport must isolate himself for the same days. Once you arrive at the place of isolation, you must notify the health authority of your arrival and location through the self-report c19.

TO CONSIDER:

The isolation of the traveler is equivalent to that carried out by positive cases and close contacts (but without a medical license). This means that, during their isolation, the traveler and his co-inhabitants CANNOT:

  • Leave home
  • Leaving the hotel room (in case you voluntarily decide to isolate yourself in a hotel).
  • Receive visits
  • Go for a pet walk
  • Go out to work

  • In the event that the symptoms are fever greater than 37.8ºC, sudden loss of smell, or sudden loss of taste, the traveler should go to a health center as soon as possible, using their mask and avoiding using public transport, complying with all pertinent sanitary measures. If you have any questions, call Salud Responde at 600 360 7777.

Testing:

The traveler may undergo several diagnostic tests for COVID-19, either at the same point of entry into the country or in any of the following 14 days. Diagnostic tests can be PCR and/or antigen tests. They may also be subjected to genotyping studies.

Inspection:

  • Travelers who are fulfilling mandatory isolation will be inspected in person at the declared place for compliance with it, at any day and time while the isolation lasts. The inspector will verify that all the co-inhabitants declared in the traveler's affidavit (C19) are in the domiciles and that there are no other undeclared persons in the domicile. In the case of a hotel, the inspector will verify that the person is in the room.
  • In case of failing to comply with any of the previous measures, the traveler will be sanctioned according to the provisions of Book X of the Health Code, the Penal Code, and Law No. 20,393, as appropriate. The amount of the fine applied to the sanitary summary for infractions to current regulations can reach up to 1000 UTM ($ 50,000,000).
