Travel Tales of Argentina
The good news is that you can add to these regions, other countries like Japan, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and South Africa that do not require a visa to enter Chile. However, it’s always important to check with the consulate of your country before traveling, especially these days that the COVID-19 pandemic is still affecting the way we travel.
All people coming from the destinations mentioned above will be granted a 90-day tourist permission to travel the country, except Greek citizens that will be allowed to tourist Chile just for 60 days.
However, if you want to visit Chile from the Arabian Emirates, or Morrocco, or Ukraine you will need a visa to enter the country. It’s strongly recommended to apply at least 20 days before your trip, or as soon as you have your flight dates (the visa can take a while…it’s better to be prepared!).
It’s always strongly recommended to read the up-to-date information to find out if you really need a visa to go to Chile or not. You can find some on the website of VisaHQ, the official website of the Ministry of Tourism of Chile, or by finding out where is your nearest local consulate. To find this information you have to google “nearest consulate in…” and you’ll probably get to the website of the official website of the Ministery of Foreign Affairs of your country. In Argentina, this is how the website looks like.
