entry fee for canadians to chile?
 
I am booked on a Cape Horn cruise this winter, and I am just now starting to hear about a fee charged upon entering Chile. Does anyone know how much this is for Canadians?
We are a family of five (three children--ages 8 - 16) and we will be starting in Buenos Aires and ending up in Santiago to fly out. If anyone has any information on this, I would greatly appreciate it.

No visa is required for Canadians to enter Chile. A valid Canadian passport is required. The visa would be an additional fee.

I would call the cruise line for information on any other taxes or fees that may be charged.

It is "possible" the fees could be port charges or other taxes that are part of your total fare.

I do strongly recommend making the call to the cruise line.

Take care,
Mike

Visa for Chile
 
We flew into Chile from Peru to pick up our cruise last February and were shocked to have to pay around $135 US, cash only as I recall, when citizens of other countries paid considerably less. Check current rates on line BUT they simply said it was reciprocal. Not sure what we did to merit such a high rate! At least the exchange rate is better now.

The entire South American trip was fantastic, but there were just the two of us paying for such visas and somehow we'd come prepared -- perhaps from on line info.

Another proud Canadian

We will be flying into Santiago from Canada, staying for two nights prior to leaving for an Antarctica cruise in December. My hubby and I have dual citizenship, both U.K. and Canadian passports. Could we just show our U.K. passports when entering Chile and avoid the $132. U.S. entry fee charged to U.S. and Canadian citizens, but not charged to U.K. citizens?
