Starting in 2014, Chileans wishing to travel to the United States can do it without the need to ask visa, thanks to an agreement that will make Chile the only country in Latin America with this benefit.
Chile and the United States would be refining the details of an agreement that will allow entering the U.S. without this document and only with the Passport, it was confirmed by the Deputy and member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, José Manuel Edwards.
According to the Congressman’s national renewal, one of the reasons that would explain this situation is the low rejection rate of Chileans requesting the visa.
The eventual agreement was valued by the Socialist Deputy Marcelo Díaz, also member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, who said that Chile will be the first country in Latin America to have this agreement.
In this regard, the international analyst Guillermo Holzmann, said that this is part of a long process of negotiation and said that the measure will benefit all Chileans.
On the other hand, Holzmann highlighted that this is part of a work of many years, adding that Colombia is also preparing a similar Pact.
