The location Suzi list - interesting and important points in south america.
Security advice : always park in safe and paid areas, especially in places like bariloche and turistic towns, we heard many cases of theft into cars (breaking windows and such)
Here is a link to the law of the aduanas (border customs) in many cases they are not aware of this part in the law that says that a turist owning a Chilean car is allowed to cross if they show a declaracion jurada that they will bring back the vehicle to chile.
Part 17.2.3 says that a tourist can cross by showing a declaración jurada. save a screenshot of this or print it so you can show them.
General info - all the borders more north from paso los libertadores (mendoza) are more dificult to cross.
If you need a Chile map they sell them at COPEC gas stations (we sometimes sell them at our office as well)
AWA- the borders specified that are good for crossing " also with authorization " from the owner, before you get the padron.
Please take in account that a foreigner cannot cross from Chile directly to Peru or bolivia with a Chilean vehicle (that's the protocol, but some people do make it), The solution is crossing to Argentina first and continuing from there.
Suzi updates this list on a monthly basis. Please update us if you had problems at any border crossing point, or if you managed to cross through a "bad" border crossing point.
This list is only for leaving Chile. You can come back to Chile from any border crossing point.
