In Chile citizens typically go on vacation during the months of January and February. Viña del Mar is a popular destination, so make sure you make your hotel reservation as early as possible. If you are planning on doing some within-country travel,  book your reservations as early as possible.  Within walking distance from the main congress venue, there is a wide range of hotels to accommodate different budgets. If you want to consider staying in nearby cities such as Valparaíso, Concon or Reñaca you will need to use public transportation or a cab/Uber to get to the conference venue.

Important Information for International Visitors

International visitors have the benefit of being exempt from the Value Added Tax (VAT) as long as they meet the following requirements:  

  • Show a foreign passport
  • Have spent fewer than 59 days in the country
  • Show the immigration card (PDI) which will be provided by the immigration officer when the visitor enters the country. Make sure to retain this document since the paper looks like a ballot and many people throw it away.
  • Payment in US dollars (USD)
  • Hotel invoice is in the name of the guest

Failure to comply with any of these requirements leaves the guest subject to paying the VAT of 19% on the total cost of their hotel stay.

Exchange rate 

All charges are subject to the exchange rate at check out.  When the guest makes a reservation, the hotel provides an estimated cost in Chilean Pesos (CLP). On the day of check-out, the hotel will convert the cost to USD using the current exchange rate.
