Where can I request a visa?

Monday, July 27, 2009  

Visas can be obtained in the Chilean Consulate in any country.  Processing time takes between two and six weeks.  Those who are already in Chile and want to request a visa can download the form from the Department of Foreign Affairs website and send the completed form and all required documents by mail.  This process takes between three and six months.  Chile has established agreements with numerous countries in all continents that allow its citizens to enter as tourists without a visa. Nevertheless, a visa is necessary to reside or work in the country. The citizens of Albania, Australia, Canada, USA and Mexico must pay different entry taxes in the airport for reciprocity reasons.
