The Decree has an exclusive article, which states:

“To be established as a requirement for entry to Chile for recreational, sports, religious or similar others, the request of a consular tourist visa with right of entry and stay in Chile in such status, for a maximum period of 90 days, for all Venezuelan nationals who wish to enter the country, without purpose of immigrating, residing or carrying out remunerated activities.”
