Local Guidelines

Chile is gradually re-opening with more restrictive or relaxed guidance in effect depending on the region you are visiting. Movement and gathering restrictions may depend on whether you have a mobility pass (Pase de Movilidad) which is provided to those who are fully vaccinated and have received a booster dose. Those without a mobility pass will require proof of a negative PCR or antigen test, taken within 24 hours.
