Chile Visas

The information above is for informational purposes only. All travelers should check to see if entry requirements and fees have changed.

Who needs a Visa?

Citizens of the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe do not need a Visa, however a passport is required.

U.S. citizens traveling to Chile for recreation, tourism, business, or academic conferences do not need to obtain a visa prior to their arrival in Chile. A Tourist Card will be issued for a stay of up to 90 days. As of March 2014, there is NO reciprocity fee for U.S. citizens.

The Chilean government will collect a reciprocity fee upon arrival to Santiago Airport: US$132 for Canadian citizens, US$117 for Australian citizens, and US$23 for Mexican citizens payable in US currency or by credit card. Following payment of the reciprocity fee you'll be issued a tourist card that is valid for 90 days and must be surrendered before departure.

NOTE that U.S. citizens going to Argentina still have to pay a $160 reciprocity fee online before entry.

Entry Requirements

  • Your passport must be valid 3 months beyond intended stay.
  • You must have tickets and documents for return or onward travel.
  • We recommend at least 2 blank pages in your passport per country visited.
