Requirements for Chileans

Medical Info for Chileans

medical information
Chileans who are traveling to France do not require any special vaccinations beforehand. However, it is recommended to check with your doctor just in case.
If you require medical treatment in France, you can easily reach the emergency services by dialing either 15 or 122. You will be connected to an operator who will help you.
It is recommended to obtain travel insurance before you leave home. Your insurance should include hospital visits, evacuations, and emergency services.
Brazilian travelers may be required by the hospital to pay their medical bill before they can receive the actual treatment for their problem. Do not worry, as these costs will be reimbursed later to you through your travel insurance after you have filled out a “Feuille de Soins” (translated to “treatment form”).
