But as stated before, have a passport as backup 'cause you never know when dealing with certain humanoids.
There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I wanted to give a recent report. I flew from Santiago to Buenos Aires, when I was leaving Chile I gave both passport and my carnet. The immigration officer told me he doesn't need the passport and he only needs my carnet. I had no issues entering Argentina and Chile with just my Carnet. I didn't even present my passport at all after leaving Chile.

yea, my wife and I just did the grand tour of the entire Patagonia, sometimes crossing the boarder twice a day on just our Chilean ID.

All the boarder guards were confused by me having my citizenship. They don't see that much at those remote crossings.

I joked, "My wife fully imported me to Chile. I have my vaccinations, my veterinarian SAG certificate, and she paid the IVA".

Yes, there's an agreement between Argentina and Chile that permanent residents and citizens of either country can travel passport-free.
