Hi everyone, I'm transiting through chile on the way into New Zealand from Colombia, Does anyone know whether I need the PCR test for that, or is it just if I'm entering the country? Tried looking on the government website but I couldn't find the details.
You need a negative PCR Test even if youโ€™re transiting. And also most of the airlines requires a negative PCR in order to board, despite what the country asks. For example, Panama doesnโ€™t requires a PCR if youโ€™re fully vaccinated, but COPA requires a negative PCR in order to board the plane. Hope it helps!
Ah okay great, thanks Bruno. I'll make sure I'm prepared with one then.

Hello all. Is there an active WhatsApp or fb group for Santiago?
There's a lot of fb groups for Santiago tbh, but what do you mean more precisely?
Hey folks! I'm reaching Santiago in a couple of weeks with my wife and we are curious to understand how it is the proccess to get the 3rd covid vaccine shot living there when we reach our spot moment to get the 3rd shot (6-month after the 2nd shot). Any of you had lived this experience there in Santiago?
Punta Arenas is terrible for remote work ๐Ÿ˜‚ 10/10 do not recommend.

The cowork cafe is closed to coworkers, only available for the cafe to go. All coffee shops have signs that say "no wifi, read a book", Airbnbs/hostels/hotels all have very spotty WiFi
I've heard of people's mobility pass not working without 3 shots this week. Not sure about how it works if you're planning on getting a booster in Chile though
I loved my time in Puerto Varas! I'll be in Puerto Natales this week and can let you know. So far wifi is fairly hit or miss
Punta Arenas is where people go to disconnect so I can understand the message ;)
Interesante! I can't say that I'd want to disconnect in Punta Arenas. It felt a little run down, but I know I'm at the end of the season.

Puerto Varas or Frutillar were way better for that
The internet otherwise all over Chile is very good if you have direct line. Punta Arenas even has starlink. The places have spotty WiFi because they just donโ€™t think itโ€™s that important or to the majority of their customers.
> Hello Everyone !
> I'm a french designer, digital nomad and travelling solo. I'm staying in Chile for the first 2 weeks of april, I would love to meet new people there so chat me up if you want to have a few drinks, discover a new restaurant, visit a museum or anything.
> See ya !
Ouch. I hope we gonna deal with any issue being there without the 3rd shot, as we are still into the 2nd shot window (6 months).
Hey everyone! Do you know how good is the Western Union rate there in Chile? I'm a Brazilian living in Argentina for around 4 months and as here there is the blue dollar thing, which make it as an absolute great way to buy money through WU. On the other hand, I've been hearing some people saying that it's more interesting to use international credit card in terms of rate there in Chile. Is that right?
I got a rate of 1 peso argentino buys 4 peso chilenos here in Mendoza
qeeferuqz this QR code is about validating your vaccinations.

As of the latest info I have, you also need a PCR test taken less than 72 hours before your entry into Chile.

You also need health insurance that covers coverage for COVID-19 related health care, with a coverage of at least $30,000 USD.

Thereโ€™s a travelerโ€™s affidavit online for you to fill out at the website c19.cl|c19.clbr />
Hereโ€™s the info for you to check out, for tourists entering Chile:

I know somebody in the program currently and Iโ€™ve been to the office/location in Santiago.
Hey Adrien, how about some beers these days?
Chile doesnโ€™t have a parallel currency market like argentina, so WU rate is pretty much the same as the ATM rate.
IMO ATM is better because the fees are cheaper
Centro Leรฑeria is a good one, its located in Providencia.
Thanks a lot, Bruno!
Yep. Receive money. Actually I'm thinking that there in Argentina it was so good the rate that it was worth all the effort. But here we are thinking that a Wise debit card could be a better solution, as it has a close rate and it should be much easier to withdraw money.
And probably it's much easier to withdraw the money. I'm prioritzing the Wise debit card as it seems to be the best option to Brazilians, but do you have any other suggestion?
If youโ€™re going to be in Chile long-term i would suggest get a Chilean account with a friend/family, it will make things easier for you.
All the banks here in chile accept wire transfers from Wise
La Compaรฑia is a good one as well, also in Providencia, that one is my favourite
Cant share the links but both places are in Google
I'm not expecting to stay much longer up here. I'd say 2 or 3 months in total. For now WU is solving my situation.
Does anyone know if the water in Santiago is safe to drink?
Yes, tap water is drinkable. The flavor is not the best, but is potable.
Iโ€™m chilean and I drink tap water all the time, itโ€™s common to drink it.
I live with my brother, 2 Canadians in Santiago, and we drink the water, but itโ€™s not tasty.
I re-entered on Saturday, and I needed to do the mevacuno vaccine info + upload insurance info via the declaracion jurada (can be done online in the mevacuno dashboard, or youโ€™ll get redirected there if you go to c19.cl|c19.cl)
WU is so expensive tho.
I didnโ€™t have to take a test on arrival but I heard theyโ€™re randomly selecting people on entry for testing. Not sure if itโ€™s 1 in 10 or something like that. They didnโ€™t pick me.
Is Chile using vax passes? Do I need to show QR code to enter bars, restaurants etc there (Santiago)?
Just booked my flight and Airbnb to La Serena! Has anyone been there before?
Has anyone stayed in Puerto Montt? How is the internet there?
Yes, youโ€™ll be asked to do that on most places.
Hey! I have been there a couple of times (Iโ€™m chilean). I think you chose the perfect time to go thereโ€”it wonโ€™t be too crowed ๐Ÿ™‚
I havenโ€™t been in Puerto Montt in a while, but I suspect you can find places with fiber connection. Iโ€™m right now in Pucon, a much smaller town, and I have perfect connection to internet.
Awesome thanks!
I am excited, gonna climb a few mountains in the Lakes Region
Ok, thanks for the info!
Oh, Iโ€™m sure you will love those landscapes! ๐Ÿ™‚
๐Ÿ›ฌ cbuloxlgbivgakrt just arrived in Concepciรณn, #chile
Awesome, I'll be there from July 8 - August 8 (while mi polola is on winter break). It's been a long time since Iโ€™ve traveled and it'll be lots of firsts for me :)
Been there multiple times.
