Visa Conditions

  • The Chile Consulate is strict about the presentation of applications. Including, but not limited to your passport validity or photo, if any documentation or material are incorrect then the consulate will reject the application. In this case, the customer will incur any urgent processing fees or tour cancellation costs. Wendy Wu Tours cannot accept responsibility for any failure in this respect.
  • Wendy Wu Tours has no control over Consular decisions to issue visas. Once your application is submitted, the Consulate may require you to pay additional fees or provide further documents, information, and/or material. In some cases, the Consulate will require the applicant to submit their passport and visa application forms in person.
  • It is very important that you read the instruction sheet carefully. Please ensure you dispatch visa documents before the due date. If you believe your visa application may be rejected, then contact the Visa Department.
