13 May 2021

Our Exporting to Chile guide summarises the laws and regulations applying to products imported into Chile, including customs requirements and procedures, import duties, intellectual property, consumer protection and immigration.

There are many opportunities for New Zealand exporters in Chile. In recent years, key exports include dairy products, machinery and equipment for the agribusiness sector (livestock and horticulture), but the opportunities are much broader. Chile has sophisticated grocery retailers, and is seeing strong growth in e-commerce.

Chile is one of only two Latin American countries that are a member of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Along with New Zealand, it is also a member of the Transpacific Strategic Economic Partnership (P4) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for the Transpacific Partnership (CPTPP), although Chile has yet to formally ratify the CPTPP.

We provide a high level guide for New Zealand companies looking to export to Chile, including documentation and compliance requirements and legal considerations.
