Why second citizenship from Chile?

  • More options for where your child can live, work, invest and retire when grown up.
  • Visa-free access to over 155 countries around the world, which again means more freedom.
  • All it takes is approximately two months spent on the ground and a few thousand dollars spent on travel and a private clinic.
  • Its legal! Chile does not restrict multiple citizenship and if you come from one of the anglosphere countries your country also does not restrict it.
  • Having a child in Chile entitles parents to apply for residency in Chile.

Why give birth in Chile?

Chile is safe

Chile is the safest country in Latin America, and the second safest in the Western Hemisphere after Canada (according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime). It is even safer than the USA when it comes to homicides.
Strong facts
Chile does not tax its citizens who do not live in the country. It is also one of two countries in the world to provide visa-free access to all G8 countries
Visa-free entry
Americans, Canadians, Australians, Europeans, etc. can enter Chile for up to 180 days without a visa. No questions to answer or fees to pay. (Australians need to pay a $100 reciprocity fee at the airport)
The 6th best passport in the world for travel
The Sovereign Man ranks Chilean passport as a travel document higher than American or Canadian
Visa-free to the entire world
Chile is the only country in Latin America that provides visa-free access to both the US and Canada in addition to the UK, European Union, Japan, Russia, etc.
Viña del Mar
The best conditions for pregnancy and childbirth
View of the city in the Pacific Ocean

Excellent conditions for pregnancy and birth

Ocean, sunbathing and vitamins
Fresh air, locally-grown fruits and vegetables, and the amazing views of the Pacific Ocean are awaiting you… Think California living, but much cheaper. Good health and a great mood are guaranteed for you and your baby.
Excellent maternity clinics
Quality of private clinics in Chile are North American-level, but much cheaper. And you are guaranteed to experience a very warm Latin attitude towards pregnant women and children in clinics and everywhere else.
Great prices in private clinics in Chile. Compare prices in maternity hospitals:
USA: 8,000 - 18,000 $
Canada: 7,000 - 14,000 $
Chile: as low as $4,200 (in a private clinic by the ocean).
Want your husband in a delivery room?

No problem - It is common in Chile for a husband to be in a room during a delivery

How good is Chilean passport really?

Compare it with some other countries
Passport quality for travel
Let's compare Chilean passport with one of the world's best – American.
Sure, on paper the US passport is better as it offers more visa-free destinations than the Chilean one.

But would you want to go these "extra" countries? The US passport will take you (and the Chilean will not) to Brunei, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Gabon, Namibia and few other places in Africa and the Middle East. (The only notable visa-free destination that Chilean passport lacks is Australia.)

However, the Chilean passport is still better for traveling because it can take you visa-free to such important travel destinations as Turkey, Vietnam, Russia and the American cannot. Recently Brazil allows US citizenship to receive e-visa to Brazil. Which means that if you are a US citizen, you are no longer required to go to the Brazilian embassy and apply for a consular visa like it was before, but you still need visa.

In fact, the Chilean passport is one of the only two in the world to give visa-free access to every G8 country – the US, Canada, the UK, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, and Russia.
Citizens' security at home and abroad
Because of the United States' sour foreign relationships with many of the world's countries, Americans are not always welcome.

While fears are often exaggerated, some well-traveled Americans we know still prefer to say they are Canadians when they travel in some parts of the world to avoid potential confrontations with locals.

Chileans don't have to worry about such things and travel the world with no fear. No one has ever hijacked a plane and threatened to kill every Chilean on board.
Price-to-quality ratio of medical care
In Chile, you can give birth in a public hospital for free if you wish. (However, the quality may not be the best.)

But even in private clinics (which are generally of excellent quality), a cost of childbirth starts at $4000 - much cheaper than in the US or Canada.

And Chileans in general always treat pregnant women and children with Latin warmth and attention.
Countries practicing the right of the soil (jus soli countries)
More than 30 countries around the world grant children born on their territory automatic citizenships – known as the "right of the soil" or in Latin - jus soli. Almost all of them are located in North and South America.

However, only very few of them are worth paying attention to as a potential place where to have your child.

The United States is a famous example and is still a very popular birth destination. However, the worldwide taxation that the Uncle Sam imposes on its citizens can be a deal breaker. Also obtaining a visa to enter the US can be a serious obstacle.

Canada does not have a worldwide taxation problem, but is also hard to get a visa to if you are not coming from the developed world.

Chile offers the regions' best standard of living, outstanding safety, and boasts the best travel document among any jus soli country – even better than the Canadian or American.
Taxation
The United States practices worldwide taxation of its citizens… even if they never lived on the American soil. Each US citizens older than 18 is obliged to report to the US tax authorities and file a declaration of all his income every year.

Chile, on the contrary, does not tax its citizens who do not live in the country.
Visa to enter Chile
Citizens of most countries do not need a visa to enter Chile. And even if visa is required, it's usually easy to get.

On the contrary, citizens of most countries need a visa to enter the USA and Canada and getting it can be hard.

To get an American or a Canadian visa, you will need to come to the consulate for a personal interview where the officer will be asking about a purpose of your trip.

If you will be upfront about your intention of having a child in the States or Canada, in the best case you will be asked to show a contract with the private clinic, and in the worst case, you can be denied a visa, as birth tourism has been under political scrutiny in these countries lately.

And even if you get a visa, it's not rare for US and Canadian officers to refuse entry at the border (sometimes without a strong reason) – not something a pregnant woman needs.
Want to have a natural birth?

We work with local experts specializing in natural birth and home birth. If you want to have a natural birth in the clinic or at home, we can help!

Everything you wanted to know about giving birth abroad but were afraid to ask

Every mother wants her child to grow up in wealth, get an excellent education and a good start in life. Take care of your baby's well-being before it is even born! Giving birth overseas can give your child foreign citizenship along with the right to live in one of the most prosperous countries in the world – Chile – and travel without limitations. The USA, Canada, Japan, countries of Latin America and Europe will all open their doors to your child, turning him or her into a true cosmopolitan.

How not to be afraid to give birth abroad?

Despite the obvious advantages, not every woman is willing to embark on such an adventure. The sole prospect of her child being born in a foreign country thousand miles away from her home already seems like a bad idea. However, we can assure you: there is nothing to be afraid of! Our experienced specialists have developed the ideal birth plan that includes providing 24/7 support to the mom-to-be not only in the delivery room but also at all doctor appointments prior to the birth.


We know how important it is that the mother remains calm throughout her pregnancy, so we take care of everything. Childbirth in Chile is a unique opportunity to have a stress-free pregnancy in sunny Latin America and give birth in a comfortable room overlooking the ocean. Take a chance - contact us today and book a ticket to the happy future for your child!

How to plan your baby's birth in Chile?

Childbirth is an extremely important event that requires thorough planning. We recommend deciding on the budget in advance and preparing foreign passports for both you and your companion. Unlike with the United States or Canada, citizens of most countries do not need a visa to enter Chile, so you do not have to go through an interview at the embassy and pay a fee. And even if visa is required, it's usually easy to get. Please note that many airlines do not sell tickets to women in their last trimester. Therefore, it is also important to properly plan your departure date.

How much does giving birth in Chile cost?

The price for giving birth abroad varies depending on the package that you choose. The price always includes the informational support in preparation for the departure, airport pick-up, transfer and assistance with accommodation, mobile and Internet connection, touring clinics, assistance in signing a contract with one of them as well as obtaining a temporary resident visa for the mother and the citizenship and Chilean documents for the newborn. In addition, we will help you prepare the documents for your child in your home country, and round-the-clock telephone support.

The key to choosing the right package lies not only in the budget planning but also in making sure it fits all your requirements. The optimal option is the Comfort package. It is the best fit for those who want to receive high-quality services and save as much money as possible at the same time. For just $3,800, we will help you prepare for the childbirth, learn the language, and shop for the baby. By choosing this package, the mom-to-be will be able to save 50% on rent in Chile, and so much more!

We also offer a more expensive Premium+ package for VIP moms. In addition to everything mentioned above, it also includes a personal driver, excursions, language courses, a photo session, and even shooting a documentary about your stay in Chile.

And to the advanced moms who speak Spanish and don't need English-speaking specialists to accompany them everywhere, we offer the Basic package. We do not recommend to opt for it if this is your first experience of giving birth abroad.

Chile citizenship by birth

Do not miss the opportunity to give your child the world! Plan your delivery abroad, and your baby will receive Chilean citizenship by birth without any obstacles. Chilean citizenship is based primarily upon the principles of jus soli (right of the soil) and jus sanguinis (right of blood). According to the local law, all children born in the country automatically receive a Chilean passport. In European countries, an immigrants' child is not entitled to citizenship, and in the United States and Canada, he or she can only receive it after reaching a certain age. Also, when it comes to the European countries, the cost of giving birth abroad can reach up to $30,000 even though the level of qualification of European obstetricians is in no way superior to the Chilean ones. Make the right choice and turn your child's birth into an exciting adventure with our team of professionals!

Reviews
What do customers our say
To say that you helped us… is to say nothing. You provided competent advice, timely communication, thoughtful service and, of course, a warm human attitude towards us.
01.10.2018
Chileans are very kind and sincere people. The doctor always treated me like a best friend. Medical staff spoke English. And we lived on the 24th floor overlooking the ocean. The birth itself went the way I dreamed about, and all paperwork took a very short time. Chilekids constantly helped us. Without them, such chores as renting an apartment, communicating in the clinic, or doing necessary paperwork would be very, very difficult! We also traveled a lot. We visited an observatory, wineries, nature reserves, and thermal springs. While still pregnant we drove around 3,000 kilometers in a rental car. Sometimes it seemed to me it was a fairy tale I did not want to leave. We even stopped in Lima, Peru on the way home.

Thank you, Lilia and Natasha, for your invaluable help in preparing for my ideal childbirth! ❤ It was awesome! My son was born in February 2017, and the girls generously shared their experience and knowledge with me. Because of their advice, I chose natural childbirth (vertically) in Limache, Chile. I will start preparing for the next pregnancy now.
17.03.2018
We spoke several times over the phone, and finally, I decided to come. I gave birth in the private clinic, in an ocean-view delivery room. And thanks to a wonderful midwife and my doctor, I had a natural birth.

As a teenager, I was always very curious about how a baby delivery process happens in other countries. Now, I know ))) Everything went fine. I spend 3 amazing months near the ocean, gave birth in a modern hospital, and my child received two passports. I want to thank you again for your help!

Questions & Answers
Question: Does Chile allow to have two citizenship?

And local private clinics combine European order and Latin American friendliness.
