Dear Clients and Friends, We will keep you informed and send you today an update on the Covid 19 situation in Chile:

  • Since the beginning of vaccinations in Chile in December 2020, more than 13,000 people have already received the first vaccination dose from the company Pfizer-BioNTech. The government hopes to vaccinate about 80% of the population (15 million inhabitants) by the end of the first semester.

  • To avoid an increase in the number of infections, the beginning of the curfew was moved forward on 26 December 2020. It starts at 10 pm and ends at 5 am. In addition, the situation in individual regions is regularly reviewed by the government using the 5-step plan. In some cases, a region falls back into quarantine.

  • As of December 31st, those who enter Chile, whether Chileans, resident foreigners or visiting foreigners, must undergo a mandatory 10-day quarantine. The quarantine can be lifted with a negative PCR result taken from the seventh day of quarantine onwards. - As a requirement for non-resident foreigners a proof of a negative PCR test taken 72 hours before boarding is obligatory. - Non-resident foreigners from the United Kingdom or that have been in the United Kingdom during the last 14 days aren’t currently permitted to enter Chile.

  • Since 4 January, there is a new vacation authorization that allows individuals who live in municipalities that are in step 2 of the 5-step-plan to travel once over the summer to other regions that are in stage 2 or higher. This is in effect between 4 January and 31 March 2021 and has already encouraged interregional travel.

The number of infections is at present slightly elevated. Currently (as of 19/01/2021), the number of active coronavirus cases throughout Chile is 24,246 and out of a total of 677,151 cases, 634,960 people have recovered. If you have any questions concerning Chile, please do not hesitate to write to your travelArt contact person.

Kind regards, Your travelArt team

Entering Chile – Always be perfectly informed …

Chile’s borders have been open to foreign tourists since 23 November. However, since the beginning of the year, those who enter Chile, whether Chileans, resident foreigners or visiting foreigners, must undergo a mandatory 10-day quarantine. The quarantine can be lifted with a negative PCR result taken from the seventh day of quarantine onwards.

In order to enable the safe reactivation of tourism, the government has created a website with all relevant information. On the official website, which is also available in English, you will find detailed information on the requirements for entering Chile, onward travel within the country and a frequently asked questions section that is regularly updated whenever there is a change in the situation.

You will also find an updated map of destinations in Chile according to 5 stages, or gradual steps, ranging from Quarantine to Advanced Opening. Destinations that are in steps 3, 4 and 5, are enabled to accommodate tourists.

We dared to look towards the horizon. A New Year, new adventures and our compass, the sun itself, guiding us along the route of the sun. We were looking for hope and the idea of there being light at the end of this dark tunnel. With the development of the Covid-19 vaccine, our hearts have skipped a beat, reminding us of the character and the spirit of the people, to achieve this positive change. The perfect example that human beings can accomplish anything they set out to do!

With the same commitment as always to our clients, here at Valencia Travel, we are optimistic and full of hope for what is to come in this new year and are looking forward to a positive2021.

Here is our update about the current situation in Perú:

Covid 19: Travel Updates Perú

- The director of International health clarified that the 14-day quarantine necessary to enter Peru may be completed in the traveller's final destination, not on the entrance to the country. The strict hygiene protocols, as dictated by the Health Minister, will be enforced with social distancing, obligatory masks and frequent hand disinfecting.

- The quarantine can be completed in the homes or hotels of the traveller, once they have reached their final destination. These arrangements should be printed out and shown to the officials on the entrance to the country.

- A negative Covid PCR test is required not older than 72 hours, to be able to enter the country.

- For anyone entering Peru, from a country where the new strain of the Covid 19 has been detected, we recommend that you take a specialised test in Lima. It is still unclear if these passengers can take the test the same day as they arrive in Lima or in their final destination.

- As of the 6th of January, all flights that have a duration of 8 hours or more, will be suspended for a period of 15 days with the aim of preventing the spread of the new strain of Covid -19.

We prioritise the safety and wellbeing of all our travellers, local experts, staff and suppliers, through a safe and responsible operation. We have worked extensively on our health and safety policies, and we are implementing new minimum standards that emphasise increased hygiene and sanitation.

All this is based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization and is following the Safe Travel protocols of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) for tour operators. Before travelling, we recommend that you check your government's travel advisory and the World Health Organization website for the most up-to-date information on destinations and permitted trips from each country.
