Climate

Temperatures in Valparaíso / Casablanca Valley in November average from 11°C to 21°C.

Arriving by Air

Almost all international flights arrive at Santiago's modern, privately operated Arturo Merino Benítez (AMB) airport.

Visa and entry requirements

All foreigners require a valid identity document. While residents of neighboring countries can use their identity card in Chile, all other foreigners require passports, and a few of these must obtain visas. It would be wise to check on the current situation before departing.

Arriving passengers are advised to declare all food products on the form provided for this purpose on the plane. The strict checks carried out by the Agricultural Inspection Service (SAG), which include sniffer dogs, are designed to preserve Chile's freedom from agricultural pests and undeclared items, even if not specifically mentioned on the list of forbidden products (principally dairy products, meat, fruit, vegetables, and plants) may be confiscated and a fine imposed. Products that have been declared, even if considered inadmissible, are not liable to the fine, although they will still be confiscated.

Tax

19% known as IVA in Spanish, is already incorporated into prices displayed in shops but not always in hotel rates where foreigners are exempt.

Tipping

In restaurants, service is not generally included and a 10 percent tip is usual. Taxi drivers do not expect to be tipped.

Cash and cards

Money can be exchanged in hotels, exchange bureaux (casas de cambio), and banks. The rate varies little between establishments, although it might not be quite as good at hotels. Banks are open to the public Monday through Friday 9am–2pm. If you have a credit card, cash can be withdrawn from ubiquitous automatic cash machines, which also take most bank cash cards.

Tobacco and Alcohol laws

Smoking is prohibited in public places and in enclosed spaces, smoking is permitted only in open areas. In Chile there is Zero Tolerance Alcohol laws, which means that no person can drive a vehicle when under the influence of alcohol.
