Australis navigates in both Chilean and Argentinian waters and their land. At the time of your voyage, make sure you are up-to-date with all necessary documentation according to your country of origin.
Passport and visa requirements vary for each nationality and it is each passenger's responsibility to inform themselves on these at the time of booking and ensure they have the correct documents necessary to enter both Chile and Argentina. It is important to know that our routes transit from Chile to Argentina and vice versa, so before travelling each passenger must find out whether visas, entry permits or reciprocity fees are required for BOTH countries for their particular nationality, regardless of the port of embarkation, and ensure they are processed well in advance in order to present them at check-in.
Both Chile and Argentina charge a reciprocity tax to certain nationalities when entering either country. This amount varies by nationality though it has been removed for many countries in recent years. It is best to confirm before travelling whether there is a reciprocity tax that needs to be paid.
All Australis navigation routes disembark in Chilean and Argentinian territories.
Underage Argentinians and Chileans who leave their country without one of their parents must carry a notarized permit authorizing it. In case of traveling with both parents they should bring the family notebook. Passengers of other nationalities should have similar permits according to their own country's standards.
