They wouldn’t let me board without a document specifically stating I have $30,000 healthcare coverage for Covid-19. Proof of insurance didn’t matter, they needed a dollar amount specific to Covid-19 coverage. My insurance company has never heard of such a thing and was no help. I honestly should have just sent myself a bullshit email.

I have insurance, I submitted proof of vaccination weeks ago and also resubmitted within 48 hours and got a QR code health certificate. Thought I had everything in order.

So since my insurance is no help, wish their a 3rd party insurance company anyone would recommend? Again, it has to state those things about the dollar amount and mention Covid-19. The people at the gate were no help.

That's infuriating, but it also sounds like you could just flash a phony email to them and they'd let you go.

So I looked online and it says exactly that:

  • Passengers that are not resident in Chile must also show evidence of health or travel insurance that covers COVID-related medical care up to a minimum of US$ 30,000 for the duration of their visit. Failure to produce this may result in being refused entry to the country.

I just sent this to my gf. I honestly wish I had through to try it. But I was in a panic trying to get ahold of my insurance company

Yeah it for sure says it. I just didn’t think that specific dollar amount thing would be an issue. I travel to Mexico a lot and if you look at the rules it’s completely different than what they actually require. I’m traveling with seasoned travelers and none of them were expecting that.

A bad place
The airline usually has a big notice at the top of your ticket confirmation page that says something like "click here to view required covid related documents" or something similar.

Tell me you didn't RTFM without telling me you didn't RTFM. :squint:

just go to TJ for some hookers and blow

I’m in Lima Peru. Peru is strict on the masks but didn’t give a fuck about documents when entering. Spain was the same. We have proof of vaccination and neg test and nobody even looked at it.

You never thought to think about traveling to another country while COVID is still around and wondering if they have restrictions?
