It is the country with the narrowest terrain in the world, with an area of ​​756626 square kilometers. Chinese cargo is easily transported to Chile by air and sea.

Among them, China’s frequent flights to Chile are
1. Santiago (SCL) - Arturo Merino Benitez Airport. Located in Santiago, the capital of Chile, is the country’s largest aviation facility. The airport was established between 1961 and 1967. In 1994, the new international terminal building was expanded to expand additional taxiways, free zones, hotels, and parking lots.

2. Punta Arenas (PUQ) - President Carlos Del Campo International Airport. Located 20 kilometers north of the city, it is the main place of access to Punta Arenas. The transportation department, car rental, duty-free shops and customs can all be found in the airport. Every day there are flights to major Chilean cities.

3. Iquique (IQQ) - Diego Aracena International Airport. It is an airport in Iquique, Chile, about 48 kilometers south of Iquique. The DIEGO ARACENA International Airport in Iquique has the longest takeoff and landing runway in Chile and can accept various types of passenger and cargo aircraft. It is the second largest passenger airport in Chile.

4. Arica (ZRI) - Arica International Airport. Located in Chile, Arica and Parinacota District, Arica Province, Arica City, 18.5 kilometers from the urban area, northeast about 1 km from the southern border of Peru.

5. Osorno (ZOS) - Carlos Ottoberburt Airport. Located in Osorno, about 7 km from the city, belongs to Chile.

For example, a shipment of goods from China is to be airlifted from Shenzhen to Chile. It can be transferred from Shenzhen Airport to Miami and then to Santiago, Chile. The statute of limitation is 5-7 days and 5 flights a week.

Because the Chilean government has implemented a comprehensive open policy to encourage foreign investment and import and export, which has greatly improved the country’s production capacity and international competitiveness, making Chile the most developed country in South America. Therefore, some Chile’s import and export policies and requirements are also relatively simple and mutually beneficial to other countries in South America. Greatly facilitated the trade of Chilean importers and Chinese exporters.

Therefore, Chile’s customs clearance is very quick. It is only necessary to prepare the required documents and cooperate with experienced customs brokers to smoothly complete the import procedures.

Clearance documents are as follows:

1. Bill of lading related to goods B/L

2. Import declaration

3. Commercial invoice invoice

4. Packing list packing list

5. Insurance Policy (If not, the customs will use 2% of the total value of goods to calculate)

6. Certificate of Origin (If not, Customs will use 6% import duty to calculate, but cannot enjoy tax breaks for trade agreements between China and Chile.

7. If it is a restricted product such as agricultural products, seafood, firearms, cosmetics, toys, chemical agents, etc., must submit the safety certificate required by the relevant unit

8. If the customs question the import price too low, it must provide reasonable proof and related documents

      Import tariff requirements

The current practice is a single tariff with a tax rate of 10%. Imported goods are subject to a 10% duty and 18% VAT at CIF prices.
Some imports impose additional taxes outside the 10% tariff:
1. Second-hand goods levies 50% additional tax on import duties
2. Air cargo tax on import duties of 2%
For some expensive consumer goods, a luxury tax is levied and the tax rate is 50%.
1. Liquor Tax: The tax rate varies from product to product, such as whisky 70%, white wine 30%, Pisco alcohol 25% and so on.
2. Tobacco taxes: 42.9% for cigarettes, 46% for cigars, and an additional 10% additional tax.
3. Car tax: Determined by cylinder capacity and luxury level.
It is to be pleased that the China-Chile Free Trade Agreement Update "Protocol" ("upgrade") was officially signed in November 2017 and is expected to be implemented in 2018. The two sides will continue to expand market opening on the basis of the high level of liberalization of the original free trade agreements, and the proportion of total zero-tariff products will reach about 98%, which will become the highest free trade level of China's goods so far.
After the upgraded version comes into effect, Chile will immediately eliminate tariffs on 24 products such as home appliances, textiles and garments, involving China’s annual exports of approximately US$4 million to Chile. The relevant products will be directly reduced to zero tariffs from the current import tariff of 6%, which will greatly increase their competitiveness in the Chilean market, and will help export companies further expand the emerging markets in Chile and even South America, transforming the advantages of the free trade agreement into advantages for enterprises to expand exports. .
The 24 tariffs of the upgraded version with immediate reduction of zero tariffs include Guangdong's dominant export products such as household appliances, textiles and garments. The potential for enterprises to use preferential tariff policies for origins is huge.
