For a Chilean Visa, there are many requirements that an individual needs to fulfil. Once a visa is stamped, and a person enters Chile, a person has 90 days to leave the country. Application for the visa must be submitted 30-60 days before travel. An essential requirement discussed below is the Chile visa photo. Although there are many types of Visas, the photo always remains the same. Here is all you need to know.
Firstly, a person needs to familiarize themselves with photo specification, so a picture can be ready during their first attempt. For a Chilean Visa, a photo must have:
Photos must reflect a person's current appearance. Therefore, an image cannot be outdated and must be taken within six months prior to travel. Photos older than six months will be rejected. Moreover, photos that are not professionally taken are likely to be rejected. In case of any sudden image appearances, an update of the photo might also be required.
For purpose of a Visa to Chile, a photo needs to be edited – cropped. This is because 60-70% of the photo has to present travellers’ face. Hence, the image is always printed and then cropped (in a studio by a professional or online) from standard 44x44mm to 27mm x 31m. For a digital image, the permitted size is; width: 472 pixels, Heights: 708 pixels. For people who use the app for a Visa photograph – an editing/cropping tool is available in the app.
In a situation where an infant, newborn, or child requires a visa, different photo guidelines apply. Although the size of the image remains the same, the head of the child is much smaller and therefore covers less space within the image. In terms of the guidelines, white background, and the absence of headwear also applies to children. The only difference is that children’s pictures are permitted to be taken in various locations. For instance, guardians may take their child’s picture in a car seat, the only rule being that a white cover/ sheet needs to be present at the backrest. If a baby is lying down on a bed, a picture can be taken from above with a white sheet underneath them. Lastly, if a baby is held by their guardian, hands must not appear in the picture. Moreover, children must be awake during the duration of the photo and must not yawn.
As mentioned above, headwear is not allowed, unless it is required by your religion or a medical condition. In this circumstance, the face has to be visible from the bottom of the chin to the top of the forehead, and from ear to ear. If a person has a medical condition associated with eyesight, glasses are permissible, yet frames must not cover a person's eyes. This must be also stated in the Visa application, so no misunderstanding is caused during the border check.
There are no guides to what a person can wear to their visa photograph, as most of the image is their face. In a situation where a person is associated with a beard, it has to be kept for the visa photo. If a person is associated with glasses and wears them on a daily basis, then glasses must be kept for the photograph. For those with long hair, hair must be neatly tied back so no obstruction is made to the face.
However, some things are not accepted, these are uniforms, shiny jewelry and piercings that may corrupt the image (such as nose rings, eyebrow piercings, or mouth piercings). Reflective tops are also not allowed as they may reflect the light during the picture. Headwear such as headbands, hats, or scarves is also not allowed. Clothes that are the same colour as the background (white), may blend in while the camera flash goes off, therefore, it is advised not to wear white.
Due to COVID19, it may be hard for people to access a professional studio for a visa photograph. Hence, online websites, along with apps and editors made it possible to take a professional picture at home. When applying for a Chile visa, there are two ways of application: at the consulate, or eVisa (done online). Hence, as mentioned before, the photograph required for a Chile visa can be taken via the app. People simply download the app on their android/iPhone device and pose to a picture at home, as it works exactly like a photo booth. By taking photos at home with your phone during the pandemic, we are making sure people are staying safe.
Photo apps accessible for a visa photo are now also free of charge. The app allows you to not only take a photograph but also receive notifications with tips that improve your image. A retake is available if the app-tip says that there are too many mistakes in the first attempt. App also provides an editing tool for any cropping, background editing, or getting rid of the shadow. Photos are generated straight away so the online application is simple. For those who apply in hard copy, photos can be sent via mail (this takes up to 3-5 working days).

Few nationals are permitted to travel to Chile with only their passport, or in some cases their ID card. These nationals are not required to have a visa, due to their Tourist Card that they received from immigration authorities when arrived. Hence, unless a person is a visa-exempt national, to enter Chile, a visa is required. Yet, obtaining a visa to Chile is very simple, due to the government’s easy process of applying online from home. Chilean government made it easier for Visa applicants because they saw many benefits in higher tourism rate – better economic stability and income gains.
The purpose of travel is important to be specified by the applicant, as a type of visa is based on the reason. There are different type of Visas:
A student visa is when a foreign national travels for study purposes abroad. In order to travel to Chile for higher education, the student requires acceptance from a university or enrollment information from one of the Chilean educational institutions. A work visa is issued to individuals who found a job in Chile, and have a signed contract permitting employment in a Chilean firm. Tourist visas are issued for tourism purposes that last from 30 to 90 days. Temporary residences are assigned to individuals who have family ties in Chile and are considered a benefit to the Chilean economy (investment opportunities), this is provided for a duration of 365 days. Lastly, a working holiday visa is given to the younger generation from Canada, Australia, or New Zealand who want to participate in a Working Holiday Programme.
For a Chile Visa, you can in some cases apply in the Chilean consulate, but mainly online, this must be done at least 30 days before your trip. Some individuals who require a diplomatic/official visa have to complete the process in person at the consulate. The requirements are copies of the traveller’s valid passport, which include personal details such as the issue and expiry date or any previous visas. Another requirement is proof of legal status – residency (if you are a permanent resident in a country that is not your birth country). Other than that, everything mentioned above is also required.
