Travelling to Chile

The main access by plane is through the airport that is most frequently used and which has the most international connections, the Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez Airport in Santiago. But there are another six international airports located in the cities of Arica, Iquique, Antofagasta, Easter Island, Puerto Montt and Punta Arenas.

By land, the shared border crossings with its neighboring countries allow you to enter Chile from Peru through Arica; from Bolivia to Arica, Iquique and Antofagasta and from Argentina in more than 50 places, with the busiest ones near La Serena, Santiago and Osorno.

By sea, the main Chilean ports, Valparaiso in particular, receive cruise ships with travelers from around the world.

 

Entering Chile

To enter Chile, you have to present your identification documents, like your ID card or passport. And, depending on your country of origin, a stamped visa.

Citizens from South America, the European Union, the USA, Canada and Australia do not need tourist visas. However, some countries must pay a tax in cash (reciprocity tax) upon arriving at the airport in Chile.
