now everyone returning must complete 14 day quarantine regardless of where they flew in from.

Re: Chilean Borders To close Wednesday, March 18th

The one thing I haven't found yet is the order to close the border. I wonder whether that simply follows on from this, from way back on 27 Feb., using existing powers? https://www.diariooficial.interior.gob. ... 734494.pdf.

Re: appointments at Registro Civil to renew ID

You want an appointment in La Serena, otherwise it can take hours (at least it did before the appointments). I've found that if you get there at the scheduled time, they call you within about 10 minutes, but you have to keep an eye on the board or you can miss your slot...
