Latest Check-Ins

The road on Chilean side is good but Argentinian part much more rough - 100km to RN40 takes ~3 hours and almost no traffic at all.

easy crossing Chile to arg just had in papers and get passport Stamps. 5 minutes.

Friendly person at the office, fast immigration and customs.

easy peasy exit of Chile. 5minutes to hand over tip and stamp passports.

Exit from Chile into Argentina. Easy process. Handed over our passports, TIP and PDI’s paper slip entry to the Carabinero. We got back our passports and car TIP stamped and dated and were on our way to Argentina in 10 min.

We left Chile here in a German motor home which we transferred the rights to drive from a German guy in Valparaiso with a Podar. The policeman here just photocopied our podar, stamped out our TVIP and stamped our passports out. Asked what veg we had, I said garlic and he didn't even check the van. Easy peasy.

Arg>Chi. Touch n go with own car. No visual checks

Exited Chile as foreign owners of a Chilean plated vehicle. Super quick and easy - had to show the Padrón and manually complete and sign a 'Salida y Admisión Temporal de Vehículos' form, provided by the Aduana which includes a 'Declaración Jurada' section, confirming that we will return the vehicle to Chile. No questions asked about when we plan to return.. Definitely recommend this crossing, a little washboard but worth it for the beautiful drive through Parque Patagonia, with sightings of Flamingos, Guanacos, Rheas, and Huemul along the way... Note: If you're travelling south once you arrive in Argentina, Bajo Caracoles is the first town you'll pass and there's only one gas station/shop attached to the hotel there, and the selection is very limited and very expensive! Before you leave Chile, stock up on (border safe) snacks for the drive and enough gas to get you to Gobernador Gregores, further south.

We, from Holland, entered Argentina here with Chilean motorcycle, no problems other than we needed an international insurance for Argentina which the Chileans helped us with.

Take this border if you own your Chilean vehicle but have no residence permit. This border is run by carabineros, whereas at Chile Chico it's PDI+Aduana, so the form, rules and stamps are different, you can exit here without problems even if Chile Chico turned you away four hours ago.

We confirm stated below. Very friendly, polite, easy and fast border crossing. Did not even look at the car, neither in the car, both arg and chile. Recomended to cross here, especially if you have poder, authorization, own chilean car etc...

Very easy, had to fill the papers myself (no internet connection) and did not have to unpack and open my bags. OK drive in Chile, little washboard towards the boarder. Did road 41 in Argentina, so don't know the state of the road down the pass.

Very quick and friendly. Let us keep the milk we had

Very rural remote border crossing. We only saw one police officer. He quickly stamped through our paperwork. After using the clean restrooms we were on our way in less than 10 minutes. No search of the vehicle (S.A.G. Or otherwise). Fastest and easiest border crossing yet.

No Problems, 5min crossing, even got offered a coffe from the border patrol

Quick and easy border crossing heading north. We met a nice customs officer, who checked our car within 90 second and let us keep everything we had (incl. onions and wurst)

Leaving chile took 5 min. Very friendly officer

Chile side of border. Efficient. Least thorough chech so far.
Correct coordinates:-47.183983,-71.97397

Argentina small border. 1 person show. 11 miles to Chile. My car was searched more thoroughly than any other time. They would not let me have my extra tanks full and it had to be in the gas tank.
