As one of the countries that was severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chilean government decided to open its borders again to welcome foreign tourists on Nov 23.
To ensure safety, tourists arriving at Chile must provide negative COVID-19 nucleic-acid test results taken within 72 hours, signed travel commitments and health insurance. Meanwhile, travelers are required to keep in touch with the Chile Health Department and report travel routes and health conditions.
The country, the best place to watch the total solar eclipse on Dec 14, is striving to welcome tourists from abroad.
Chile will receive about an estimated 300,000 international tourists at the end of 2020 on the condition that epidemic prevention measures go smoothly.
