If you are a national of the United Kingdom and you hold a valid passport with at least six months remaining, and an outward ticket, you may enter Chile for up to 90 days without a visa. You will be asked the address of where you are staying when you enter the country. If you want to stay in Chile for longer than 90 days, you can apply for an extension from Ministerio del Interior, Departamento de Extranjeria y Migracion, Moneda 1342, Santiago. You may only be granted one extension, at a cost of $100.
For more information, have a look at the Chilean Embassy in London’s websitewhich lists the countries whose residents do not need visas if staying in Chile for less than 90 days.
You cannot work in Chile without a visa.
