CHILEAN CITIZENS VISITING AUSTRIA
TRAVEL INFO AND ETIAS REQUIREMENTS
An ETIAS authorisation will be required for every Chilean citizen for short-stay period in Austria starting from 2021.
A valid passport is required to enter Austria. All tourists entering Austrian territory from another (Schengen country) are exempted from presenting their passports to Austrian authorities. In this case, a national identity card is the only document needed.
The passport and other travel documents accepted for entry must be valid for a minimum of 3 months beyond the period of intended stay. All the Passports (or equivalent travel documents) issued more than ten years before the date of travel, may not be accepted.
A Schengen visa is mandatory for all nationals of Chile who stay in the country for a period greater than 90 days.
For short stay visits (less than 90 days within a period of 180 days), the visitors are exempted from obtaining a valid Schengen visa.
An ETIAS authorisation will become a mandatory requirement for every Chilean citizen starting from 2021.
ETIAS will have a validity of five years, and it can be used for an unlimited number of entries.
