Chile to Drop Quarantine, Update Covid Protocols

Following the reintroduction of foreign visitors on Oct 1, the Chilean government announced revisions to its Protected Boarders Plan.

A sign of life returning to normal following a sharp decrease in the Covid-19 cases over the last few weeks in the South American Nation. Chilean officials stated that the previously scheduled five-day isolation period will no longer be required for fully vaccinated passengers who produce a negative coronavirus test beginning November 1.

International visitors can enter the country by airports in Santiago, Iquique, and Antofagasta. Visitors must produce a negative test result, fill out the government’s “Travelers Affidavit,” and show proof of travel insurance to enter the country.

In both situations, passengers must additionally show confirmation of an authorised vaccine.

Regardless of the coronavirus-related procedure modifications, all tourists arriving in the nation must continue to follow the traveler’s follow-up process, which lasts 14 days and includes daily self-reporting of health status, present location and testing through email. Mobility pass will be issued to only those individuals vaccinated with Moderna, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, Sinopharm, Sinovac, CanSino and Sputnik V.

Chile has pioneered one of the world’s quickest and most effective vaccination programs, with over three-quarters of its people completely vaccinated. As a result, the number of infections has decreased.
