On Wednesday, December 15, 2021 we received updated information from Norwegian Cruise Line that all passengers must have a Chile Mobility Pass. This is a five step process. Two of the five steps must be completed between 45 and 15 days before arrival in Chile. That evening Joe, Katie and Mac each submitted their identification and COVID-19 vaccination information for verification and entry into Chile’s registry.
This morning Joe and Mac received their ID and COVID vaccination verification acceptance with their QR code for their Mobility Pass.
Katie received a notice that her’s was rejected. She called the Chilean Consulate in Washington, DC and resubmitted using their advice. Now we wait, again.
Steps 3, 4 and 5 will take place just prior to arrival in Chile with completion of an attestation document, submission of at least $30,000 in health insurance coverage and submission of negative COVID-19 testing result.
The cruise line obtained additional health insurance for all passengers on our sailing to ensure we all met the necessary requirement for entry to Chile.
The QR codes for the mobility pass will not become “Active” until all 5 steps for entry are complete and we are granted permission to disembark the ship in Punta Arenas, Chile.
