Check-in at SFO was very slow as most pax connecting in MIA to Chile were filling in the forms on the spot. That flight, the only non-stop of the day, and the MIA to SCL were completely full. There was no special protocol in MIA for deplaning, just the usual scrum.

And additionally, you will need The Travellers Sworn Statement ( found at www dot cl19 dot cl ) filled out and submitted electronically 48 hours or more before scheduled arrival at SCL.
I did mine upon check in at the airport in Chicago when I returned last month. It was definitely less than 48 hours before arrival at SCL.
yea, not sure where he got that from. I have seen no 48 hours related to that form, and even if that was their intention, I doubt anyone would be aware pf that.

Admin, I will again submit the following four Gobierno de Chile websites that state that returning citizens or residents must complete a Travellers Sworn Statement and the conditions thereof! Whether or not the submission requirements are generally known, it is not going to hold much water if the good folks at Immigration decide to enforce the regulation, and the passenger pleads ignorance. At the very least, it could slow his exit out into the Chilean sunshine!

It is worth checking these websites frequently if you are planning to travel to Chile, as the information does change from time to time, and relying on other people’s experiences may not provide the best guide to re-entering the country without unnecessary bureaucratic hassle.

I’m not a tourist but I’m not yet a resident either. I’ll be returning to Chile in December to rejoin my wife. The biggest headache I see at the moment is the covid test. The testing labs are telling me it could be up to 72 hours before I might get the results via email. I won’t be able to board the flight if I haven’t received the results in time. I’m also retired and let my medical insurance lapse this year in preparation for this move. I’ll be buying a Traveller's medical policy to comply with the entry requirements. I wonder what changes to these policies are coming in the following weeks.

so far so good. We have had a few people come in so far that were under a tourist visa.

The biggest complaints we seem to be getting is the officials at the airport don't know what the regulations are either, and are giving some rather conflicting advice to people arriving.

seems one of the congressmen has filed a protection order against the minister of health in regards to opening the boarders, while at the same time locking down metropolitan region in quartine.

not sure where that is going, but so far seems the government has dodged fighting any cases out in court. I think it is because they know they are on shaky legal ground.

and there is new restrictions on domestic flights from santiago, which make absultly no sense.

https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nac ... a-rm.shtml

someone in the comments said like, "I can fly from the congo to santiago, but can not fly from regions to santiago".

I don't know what is going on with the government, but there seems to be total chaose around everything they are doing right now. like internally, they are having trouble communicating, let alone with the country.

The rumors that Pirahna is/has been off his rocker may be true.

Yeah, where there's smoke theres fire as they say, stress and the pressure of the last 15 months is finally getting to him probably, not making clear decisions, not leading, he can't see the woods for the trees surrounded by yes men and women. Wouldn't surprise me in the least if he is having mental health issues.
