Hi, does anyone know if there is a hotel in the Santiago airport, or if not, any recommendation for one close by. I will be arriving at 11 PM and leaving early morning the next day.
If you don't have an APEC card just a couple of points... Its $US30, and valid for 90 days (re-entry). Try to get to the counter quickly (on the left ~30m before immigration desks) the line gets processed fairly slowly.cowombat said:<snip> Make sure you have your APEC card to ensure you don't get hit the $30 the Chileano customs would otherwise charge Aussies as a repricocity tax. They hit all Aussies (except those with APEC card) even for a transit stay.
Unless it has dropped in the last 60 days, the fee is actually $US56. We were told on arrival (but I don't see it printed anywhere) that the fee is valid for the life of your current passport.cabbage74 said:If you don't have an APEC card just a couple of points...
