USEFUL INFORMATION

ACCESS OPTIONS

You can choose to enter Chile by air, land or sea. Before you start your trip, bear in mind the following:

* Citizens of the U.S., Canada and Australia must pay a tax of 100, 55 and 35 dollars respectively for visa reciprocity.
* Travelers from non-democratic countries such as Cuba, India, Jordan and China, among others, must previously go to the Chilean consulate in their respective countries of origin, bearing a letter of invitation from a Chilean citizen which has been certified by a Notary Public.

- Foreigners may remain in the country for a period of 90 days, this being renewable without any inconvenience for a further period of 90 days.
- In the event of citizens from countries requiring a visa who want to visit Tierra del Fuego, a multiple visa is recommended, as the Argentine-Chilean border is crossed several times during this trip.

BY AIR

Comodoro Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport, also known as "Pudahuel", is the main entry gate to the country by air. Daily flights from the main cities in the world land at this air terminus, located 20 km from the Chilean capital city, Santiago.

The cities of Arica, Iquique, Antofagasta and Puerto Montt also possess international airports.

General Recommendations

- To avoid last-minute flight booking problems, do not forget to reconfirm your reservation 72 hours before takeoff.
- You are advised to check in at the airline counter three hours before departure time to avoid any problems.
- Remember that all payments and other airport procedures must be carried out personally by passengers at the appropriate counters.
- Do not accept any parcel "in commission" from strangers.
