Chile lifts Covid travel restrictions

Travellers to Chile will no longer need a PCR test or Covid-19 vaccination certificate upon entry as part of a full lifting of pandemic travel curbs.

Inbound arrivals in the country will no longer be subject to random Covid-19 testing.

The relaxation of rules for international tourists came into force last week.

The change by the country’s health ministry was made after the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the end of the Covid public health emergency. 

However, the country’s tourist office said: “It is important to highlight that, although the epidemic threat in relation to Covid-19 is declining, the circulation of other respiratory viruses should be acknowledged ahead of the winter months. 

“It is therefore important to keep vaccinations up to date, both against Covid-19 and influenza, as well as to maintain the self-care measures that were adopted during the pandemic: frequent hand washing, keeping closed spaces ventilated, and the use of masks where necessary.
