  • They must arrive at the declared domicile by private transport within a maximum of 5 hours and directly from the entrance to the country. Public means of transport, including trains, buses and airplanes, may not be used.

verify that all the cohabitants declared in the Traveler’s Declaration Affidavit are at the domicile, and that there are no other undeclared persons at the domicile. 

In case of failure to comply with any of the above measures, the traveler will be sanctioned according to the provisions of Book X of the Sanitary Code, the Penal Code and Law No. 20,393, as applicable. The amount of the fine applied in the sanitary summary for infringements to the regulations in force may reach up to 1000 UTM ($50.000.000.000.-).

In addition to those measures, some local Airlines would reduce the domestic and international flights availability from April 5th.

In order to avoid inconveniences during the trip, we suggest checking with your travel agency potential changes on domestic/international flights of/to Chile. Additionally, times of transit of at least 5 hours between International and Chilean domestic flight (and vice versa) should be considered.
