Chileans will travel to U.S. without a visa in 2014

Chile close to becoming only Latin American nation to not need a visa to travel to US.

Update, June 3: Piñera Confirms Chileans to Travel to US without Visas – Verification to be Completed within Months

From 2014 Chileans wishing to travel to the United States can do so without having to request a visa thanks to a new agreement between the two countries.  This will make Chile the only Latin American country that will not need a visa to enter the US.

Chile’s Ambassador to the United States Felipe Bulnes said that significant progress has been made with the US Visa Waiver Program.  After several months of negotiations, the two countries are close to signing the two agreements to exchange the information required by the  program.  The exchange will include information on serious crimes and counter-terrorism cooperation.

According to Bulnes, one of the reasons for the deal is the low rate of rejections of visa applications by Chileans. Last year, Chile lowered the rejection rate to less than three percent. Also, Chile will be implementing an electronic passport system in September – a program requirement.

President Sebastián Piñera will travel to the US in June to meet with President Barack Obama and will address the progress of the visa waiver program, among other subjects.
