Easter Island reopens to visitors

Tuesday, Aug 09, 2022 0

Easter Island has welcomed tourists back after 868 days of border closures.

Last week Rapa Nui welcomed the first group of more than 230 tourists.

It was thanks to an agreement between the government and the island’s communities to prep for a safe reopening.

“We are very happy that the island is starting this new stage of reopening. Most tourist services are ready to welcome visitors, maintaining appropriate hygiene protocols and with the hope of reactivating their businesses,” said Undersecretary of Tourism, Veronica Kunze.

“Expectations are high, people are happy and pleased to finally have their bridge open, not only to welcome guests, but also to have that sense of freedom to be able to leave and return from the island”, said Pedro Edmunds, Mayor of Rapa Nui.

Tourists who wish to visit the island must present a negative PCR, taken no later than 24 hours before boarding, and children under 6 years equire an antigen test.

In addition, they must have their Mobility Pass (complete vaccination schedule for Chileans and vaccination standardisation for foreigners)

Those arriving directly from abroad must take an antigen test upon arrival to Rapa Nui.

All visitors to Rapa Nui must also complete the Single Entry Form to Easter Island and have a reservation in a registered tourist accommodation.
