If you plan on visiting Chile any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Chile SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.
The prepaid SIM card for Chile is a trouble-free option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Chile cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Chile cell phone rental. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll also enjoy the benefit of 6000C ($11 USD) of starter airtime credit, SMS text messaging, voicemail, a local cell phone number in Chile, and free incoming calls. What’s more, you’ll have 24 hour a day access to customer service simply by dialing 103 or 059 from your Chile cellular phone. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.
Your Chile SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 1900 frequency. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.

Additional airtime credit is available through the purchase of airtime vouchers, also called “recargate” cards, not another SIM card, in Chile. These airtime vouchers are available in Chile at local tabac shops, convenience stores, Elcel shops and authorized dealers. Airtime vouchers are available in 3 denominations:
To add the voucher to you balance, simply scratch off the gray protective layer to reveal your voucher code. When typed into the keypad of your international cell phone the voucher code will credit your Chile SIM card the respective Peso denomination you purchased.
Remember you do not need to purchase another SIM card when your airtime credit is depleted; you only need a recharge voucher! As long as your SIM card is active, your incoming calls are always free, even when you run out of airtime!
If you do not recharge your SIM card within any 5 month period, your Chile mobile phone number will be recycled and any remaining airtime will be forfeit. The 5 month period begins the day you arrive in Chile and add your first airtime voucher.
