Traveling to Chile is more affordable and simpler for US citizens, Chile now has signed a bilateral agreement with the US government, eliminating the $160 reciprocity fee that was required for US citizens entering Chile.

Effective immediately, US citizens are no longer required to pay the $160 reciprocity fee upon entering Chile through any border. US citizens can enter Chile for up to 90 days on a tourist visa with a valid passport.

The US Department of Homeland Security made the announcement on February 28, 2014, as Chile signed a bilateral agreement with the US government. This move was intended to improve travel and business relations between Chile and the United States. The agreement certainly makes travel to Chile a much more streamlined and affordable process. On the other hand Chilean citizens don't need to pay a $160 entry fee, before entering the USA.
