Do you need a visa to visit Chile or Argentina?
Please use this page as guidance only. Visa requirements can change and the only way to be sure of your exact requirements is to contact the local embassy or consulate on your country for the country you intend to visit.
UK, USA, Canadian, Australian & other EU passport holders do not normally need to pre-arrange a visa for Chile or Argentina. On arrival at immigration as you enter the country, in normal circumstances you are given an entry visa for up to 90 days. You will be required to show a valid passport with sufficient validity to cover the full length of the 90 days or even 6 months in some instances. An onward ticket to prove your intention to leave the country at the end of your trip may be required.
USA, Canada & Australian passport holders are likely to be charged a fee when entering Chile for the first time. This applies to the passport being used, as once a fee has been paid, on subsequent visits with the same passport the fee is not normally charged. The links below list the relevant fees payable.
Our last information specified fees as follows:-
