National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Global Health Advisory: Do Not Travel. Avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19 Exercise increased caution in Chile due to civil unrest. Read the entire Travel Advisory and Travel Alerts. There have been large-scale demonstrations in Santiago and other major cities in Chile.  Demonstrations can take place with little or no notice.  Many protests occur with little regard for public safety, and have resulted in property damage, looting, arson, and transportation disruptions.  Local authorities have used water cannons and tear gas to disrupt protests. The government-imposed State of Emergency was lifted on October 28, 2019.  The State of Emergency included curfews in multiple cities, which were enforced by police and the armed forces. While the State of Emergency was lifted, there continue to be conflicts between protestors and Chilean police in Santiago and other cities in Chile. You should remain vigilant, monitor local media for updates and avoid protests and demonstrations. Expect disruptions to transportation, particularly in Santiago. The Santiago Metro is operating with limited hours, and service has yet to be restored to the entire network. Road blockages on highways and major thoroughfares may occur with little warning. You should contact your airline prior to travel for any information on potential flight delays. Many shopping malls, banks, supermarkets, and restaurants may be operating with reduced working hours, particularly in the evening.

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til hele verden, herunder Chile. Det gør vi, fordi mange lande i øjeblikket indfører omfattende restriktioner med kort varsel for at forebygge smittespredning med coronavirus/COVID-19. Restriktioner omfatter i flere lande ind- og udrejserestriktioner, udgangsforbud o. lign. Den danske ambassade i Santiago har de seneste oplysninger på sin hjemmeside om myndighedernes restriktioner i Chile og mulighederne for at rejse hjem til Danmark. Flere fly-, færge-, bus-, og togforbindelser bliver aflyst eller indstillet. Det kan gøre det meget svært at komme hjem til Danmark. Ambassadens hjemmeside opdateres løbende. Alle danskere, der i øjeblikket rejser i udlandet og ønsker at komme hjem, opfordres derfor til at gøre det nu. Du bør undersøge mulighederne for at udrejse i dialog med dit rejse-, fly- og/eller forsikringsselskab. Denne opfordring gælder ikke for danskere, der er fastboende i udlandet. Har du din hverdag i udlandet, er opfordringen, at du følger anbefalinger og anvisninger fra lokale myndigheder. Du bør følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger og løbende holde dig opdateret om udviklingen via ambassadens hjemmeside, de lokale myndigheder og nyhedsmedier. Danske grænser vil ikke blive lukket for danske statsborgere eller andre personer, der bor i Danmark. Du bør følge Sundhedsstyrelsens råd. Du kan også læse mere om udviklingen i COVID-19 i udlandet hos Statens Serum Institut. Du kan læse mere om danske myndigheders tiltag på www.coronasmitte.dk. Risiko for terror Terrorister vil kunne forsøge at gennemføre terrorangreb overalt i verden. Angreb vil kunne ske uden varsel på steder, der bliver besøgt af mange mennesker, bl.a. turister. Det kan fx være ved offentlige bygninger, turistattraktioner, indkøbscentre, markeder, trafikknudepunkter, hoteller, restauranter, caféer, natklubber og barer. I 2014 oplevede Chile et bombeangreb i Santiago, som blev defineret som et terrorangreb gennemført af lokale anarkister. Læs mere om rejser til lande med terrorrisiko.

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
