    Reciprocity tax

    by MikeAtSea Written Jan 7, 2007

    US Passports

    Favorite thing: US citizens pay a reciprocity tax of USD$100 in cash upon entry into the country. The receipt is valid for the life of your passport. This tax is applied to countries that charge Chilean citizens a fee to process visas. However most countries have a visa waiver agreement with Chile.

    Chilean Peso

    Favorite thing: The Chilean currency is the Peso. Most of the time you will pay with notes, since the coins do not represent much value. Banknotes of the following nomination exist: $1000, $2000, $5,000, $10,000, $20,000 and coins of $1, $5, $10, $50, $100 and $500.

    Crew

    Favorite thing: Everywhere that we went in or around the city we would see this camera crew.
    We got very curious as to what they were doing.
    Finally got the chance to ask one of them.
    They were from Holland and were here filming a documentary about Chile.
    It is to air in March of 2005.
