Chile has announced an end to all travel-related COVID-19 requirements.As part of the "Protected Borders Plan," the South American country no longer requires a PCR test upon entry or conducts random testing. Visitors also don't require a COVID-19 vaccination certificate.The plan has been terminated as of Tuesday, May 9 after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared an end to the global health crisis."This measure allows the industry to return to the long-awaited scenario of normality. Inbound tourism is in full reactivation, in fact, we expect 3.5 million foreign tourists to arrive in our country in 2023 and we hope that this announcement will give a new impetus to this process. This is a great opportunity to promote Chile as a unique and world-class destination," said the Undersecretary of Tourism, Verónica Pardo Lagos."It is also important to thank the different guilds and associations of the tourism industry for their collaboration and work during the more than three years of international health emergency and for being relevant actors in the implementation of measures and the construction of agreements for their relaxation."Despite the eliminated measures, the Ministry of Health urges visitors to keep vaccination up to date, both against COVID-19 and Influenza, as well as practice good hygiene such as frequent hand washing and the use of masks when presenting respiratory symptoms.
