Action taken in the country

Lockdown: Partial
The Chilean government’s strategy to manage COVID-19 is called ‘Paso A Paso’. It has five stages:

Stage 1 - Restriction

Stage 2 - Transition

Stage 3 - Preparation

Stage 4 - Initial Reopening

Stage 5 - Advanced Reopening

Individual comunas will move forwards or backwards between these stages, depending on the level of COVID-19 infections in the region. Changes to the stage of a ‘comuna’ can be announced by the government at any time and come into force shortly after. All rules for each Stage (Paso) will apply seven-days a week.

In those areas under Stage 1 ‘Restriction’ you are only allowed to leave your residence under certain circumstances, including for medical reasons, basic services, and public services. If you need to leave your residence for food or medical supplies, you must get a permit from the Comisaria Virtual (https://comisariavirtual.cl/). Foreigners may use their passport number to access the system. The pages are only in Spanish.

For further detailed information on rules for every Stage, you should review the Chilean Government Paso a Paso website (https://www.gob.cl/coronavirus/pasoapaso/).
