Chile reopens its borders to tourism
National authorities held a ceremony at the Arturo Merino Benitez Airport in Santiago de Chile
This morning, Chancellor Andrés Allamand, the Minister of Transport and Telecommunications Gloria Hutt Hesse, the Minister of Economy Lucas Palacios and the CEO of Nuevo Pudahuel Xavier Lortat Jacob, held an act that marks the reopening of the country's borders through the SCL airport.
It is worth remembering that on March 18, Chile had closed its air, sea and land borders.
Gloria Hutt Hesse pointed out that "the Health Authority ordered that all foreigners who enter, regardless of the country of origin, must carry the negative result of a PCR Test, with a maximum age of 72 hours from the moment of entry to Chile, the Affidavit for Travelers that is available at www.c19.cl and health insurance. In addition, they will be subject to the Travelers Surveillance Period for 14 days after entry. The opening to the transit of foreigners through the Santiago Airport could translate into a greater number of people entering the country and, for this, we have all the sanitary measures to make air transport safe ”.
Additionally, it was announced that the Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport in Santiago is the first Chile to obtain the ACI Airport Health Accreditation.
