Visa or Reciprocity fee no longer required for US Citizens visiting Chile

FAST FACTS ABOUT TRAVELING TO CHILE

http://www.chile-usa.org/fastfacts.htm
VISA
No visa is necessary when you travel to Chile, only a valid passport. When entering Chile (By cruise, vehicle or plane), at customs, you’ll need to fill out a Tourist Card that allows visitors to stay for up to 90 days and will allow multiple entries. You’ll need to show this Tourist Card to Customs when leaving the country as well, so be sure you don’t lose it. For more information on other type of Visa, go to the CONSULAR SECTION of the Embassy of Chile (Washington D.C.).
ENTRY FEE 
Since May 1, 2014 there is no reciprocity fee. (What is a Reciprocity Fee?: Nonimmigrant visa applicants from certain countries may be required to pay a visa issuance fee after their application is approved. These fees are based on the principle of  reciprocity:  when a foreign government imposes fees on U.S. citizens for certain types of visas, the United States will impose a reciprocal fee on citizens of that country for similar types of visas.)
TAXES
Hotels waive Chile’s 18% sales tax applied to rooms when the guest shows the Tourist Card and pays with U.S. dollars. On flights leaving Chile, there is an airport tax of US$18, or the equivalent in Chilean Pesos. On domestic flights airport tax is included in the airline ticket.
