Chilean lodging company explora reports that Chile plans to welcome back foreign travellers Nov. 1, meaning all of the South American countries where it has properties will be accepting guests.
“We are happy to tell you that the borders of the countries where our lodges are located have begun to open and allow the entry of foreigners. The last one to make this decision was Chile, announcing that the opening will take place as of Nov. 1.” To do this, travellers must:
- First complete a process of vaccine approval on the website www.mevacuno.cl. Check the documents you need here.
- A negative PCR test must be presented upon boarding, performed no more than 72 hours in advance.
- In addition, a PCR test will be performed upon landing at the airport, the results of which the authorities say will be ready in approximately 12 hours, so we recommend spending at least a night in Santiago. After receiving the results, travelers can continue and take their air connections to our destinations.
In a statement, explora said: “Given the high demand expected, people are advised to carry out the vaccine approval process at least 3 weeks in advance. Explora will implement a traveler support service so they can resolve their doubts at the email [email protected]”
It should be noted that Chile has been going through its best moment since the pandemic began, with over 80% of the population vaccinated and 30% of them already have their third dose,” explora adds.
