How to avoid fines in the Airport of Santiago Chile

Be careful with the agricultural swornment

Chile is a country free of some agricultural diseases such as :foot and mouth among others, so the agricultural airport control is ver strict at the arrivals.

In the last few moths a lot of travellers have been fined, sometimes over 200 dollars for bringing just an apple or a bag with peanuts, m&m’s and almonds and not declare them.

Because of sanitary issues, the airport control about any organic item that you bring is extremely tough, so declare everything ….where do I declare this?

Upon arrival an agricultural sworn statement will be given to you, some time is given on the plane, especially if you travel by LAN , be sure to declare there .
