Chilean reciprocity fee for cruise arrival

Recommended Posts

What is the situation for arriving in Chile by cruise ship rather than air? Our South American cruise ends in San Antonio and we go from there to Peru. Does the reciprocity fee only apply to airport arrivals? We are Aussie so know it is payable going in by air (though we are in transit and shouldn't have to pay it) but have not been able to find anything about entry by any other way.

From what I have read, they were only charging this for people arriving at the airport in Santiago, but maybe someone has more recent experience at the cruise terminal.

I think it varies based on what country you are from.  I think for US, it’s $150 pp.

If you are traveling with Princess Cruises, Visa Travel Requirements are covered on the first page of your Cruise Personalizer, and in your Travel Summary, available in your Cruise Personalizer.  They are not easy to find, but look closely, they are there.

have never seen this provide specific info - this time it just says:

Documents You Will Need

Non-U.S./Non-Canadian citizens, in addition to passport requirements please verify your visa requirements for each port on your cruise by contacting the consulate of each country visited or by contacting a visa service

Admittedly, I'm in America, and I will be flying in, but this is what shows for me. NOTE what I have highlighted.  I hope this helps.  If necessary, use "Princess" to log in.

The website is only for cruises about three months out, and my cruise is not until 2020, but I have found it very helpful.
