BTW. We are still submitting our daily health reports via email, and so far no-one has actually come here to check up on us ... though on the C19.cl form (travellers sworn affidavit) we had inadvertently provided phone numbers that were incorrect. And there is no way to correct them so far as I can tell. Thankfully we will be freed from the form-filling requirement on Christmas Day ...wheee! A(nother) reason to celebrate!
yea, a negative PCR on arrival is not get out of jail free card. more like less beucracy. you are still monitored for 14 days.

there was a story in the states today of a guy dying of covid on the plane. they made an emergency landing to deal with it. his whole family had disney world baggage. they did not figure out it was possibly covid related until after the flight had continued on to its destination. how many flights to how many destinations did those passengers continue on to?

Well, I made it back to Chile. Got all my ducks in a row and left Ft Myers on the 18th. The counter staff asked only to see my negative covid test. The connection in Atlanta was a little more chaotic and I needed to produce my affidavit and proof of insurance as well. I think there was some initial confusion as the gate staff was requiring the same documentation for ALL passengers without regard to nationality. This was eventually sorted with the flight departing a little behind schedule.
My wife had driven to Santiago the previous evening where she stayed with family. I had no issues with my arrival at the Santiago airport and we then returned to her sister’s house and stayed for lunch. We left around 4pm for the drive to Chillan. Although I saw a few checkpoints, we were never stopped until reaching the outskirts of Chillan. We only produced my passport and entry visa from the PDI at the airport and this was sufficient for the officer who quickly let us pass. I believe both Chillan and Santiago are currently in phase 2 and was initially a little concerned about traveling between the 2.
I have been receiving an email every day asking about any symptoms I may have and whether or not I have sought any medical attention or obtained a covid test since my arrival. This has been my experience so far and your mileage may vary.

With the U.K. travel.ban, this a good time to repeat the obvious:

All these rules are subject to change at any moment.

DO NOT COME TO CHILE, IF YOU CAN NOT STAY INDEFINITELY!!!

on a related note, for residents, temporary residents, and other's we have had lots of people come in recently (like today). There was no issues with simply presenting a PCR test that was under 72 hours on arrival.
If I have a visa temporary in process paper, which category I fall into - resident or non-resident? I just want to know if I need to buy tourist insurance.
