We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Chile. The British Embassy in Santiago provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Chile.

Our work covers a range of issues including providing commercial, consular, press and general information services.

You can access UK government services while in Chile.

Urgent assistance

If you’re in Chile and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call +562 2370 4100. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Chile, call 020 7008 1500.

Get an emergency travel document

You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.

You will need to get a police report if your passport was lost or stolen before we can issue an ETD. You can get a police report by visiting the nearest police station. Please bring the copy of the police report issued or the paper confirming you have reported it.

Apply online for an emergency travel document if you:

  • are over 16 years old and
  • are a British citizen and
  • have previously owned a British passport

Contact us to apply for an emergency travel document if you are:

  • over 16 years old but have not owned a British passport before or
  • not a British citizen or
  • applying for a child under 16 years old

Once you have contacted us, you will be advised to book an appointment for an emergency travel document at British Embassy Santiago.
