Dear SSAGI participants,

Please note the following information in reference to COVID 19 and requirements to enter Chile

Mobility Pass (Pase de Movilidad)

As of April 14, 2022, the Chilean government no longer requires travelers to obtain a Mobility Pass (“Pase de Movilidad”) to enter Chile. 

However, a valid Mobility Pass will still be required in many situations, including but not limited to the following:

• Domestic travel (by plane, bus, etc.) For example, if you are arriving in Santiago and have a connecting domestic flight to another city in Chile, a Mobility Pass will not be requested upon arrival in Santiago but will be required to board your connecting domestic flight.
• Indoor dining at restaurants. Dining at open terraces is allowed without a mobility pass.
• Access to theaters and cinemas.
• Participation in organized tours.
• Attendance at large public events (sporting events, concerts, etc.)

The Organizing Committee encourages participants who may engage in any of the above activities to obtain a Mobility Pass prior to arrival in Chile. Please note that the mobility pass may take up to 10 days to be issued.

The use of a face mask will be mandatory when in closed spaces during the duration of SSAGI 2022.

In the absence of a Mobility Pass most places and SSAGI 2022 will accept a negative PCR with a validity of 72 hours.  The average price of a PCR test in Chile is CLP 30.000 (US$ 36 – BRL$ 175).

Before boarding your flight to Chile

Travelers will have to present the following documents when boarding their flight to Chile:

• A completed “Traveler’s Affidavit” prepared less than 48 hours before boarding.

Proof of a health insurance policy that provides coverage for COVID-19 and related health issues during the traveler’s stay in Chile. The health insurance must cover charges associated with COVID-19 during the traveler’s stay, with a coverage of USD $ 30,000 (minimum).

Please check your country’s sanitary requirements in case you need a negative PCR taken in Chile before boarding your flight back home.

Organizing Committee SSAGI 2022

The Organizing Committee has extended the deadline for early registration to SSAGI 2022 until June 10, 2022.


XII South American Symposium on Isotope Geology
3 – 6 July 2022

Santiago de Chile, Chile



The XII South American Symposium on Isotope Geology is dedicated to the memory of:

Márcio Martins Pimentel and Francisco Munizaga Villavicencio

for their outstanding contribution to the development of geochronology and isotope geology in South America.

SSAGI will be held at the Campus Rector Ernesto Silva Bafalluy of Universidad del Desarrollo, located in Av. Plaza 680, Las Condes, Santiago, Chile.

About Chile

Chile is located along the western side of the Andes for over 4000 km, and is known worldwide for its highly active volcanism and seismicity related to the subduction of the Nazca and Antarctic oceanic plates beneath South America. Old continental basement rocks of the Chilean Andes were formed during the growth of the southwestern margin of Gondwana and are constituted by accreted Paleozoic terranes and associated accretionary complexes developed along ancient subduction zones. Due to the successive accretion events, the subduction-related Paleozoic plutonic belts were added gradually towards the west. Mesozoic and Cenozoic development is characterized by almost continuous subduction activity with early development of marginal basins and successive magmatic arcs migrating eastwards, accompanied by several orogenic events and development of copper-rich ore deposits distributed along crustal-scale fault zones. The Chilean Andes comprise more than 80 Pleistocene and Holocene volcanoes with historical activity, which have been key natural laboratories for the study of volcanism, magma genesis and crust-mantle interactions in subduction settings. The geomorphology and landscape evolution have been influenced by latitudinal differences of tectonic plate kinematics and climate variabilities. Neogene landscapes are preserved in the hyperarid mountain ranges of northern Chile, Quaternary uplifted marine terraces along the coastline are characteristic and glacial geomorphology dominates in southernmost latitudes.

is a 4 day-Symposium with conferences addressing methods and applications of stable and radiogenic isotopes in Earth Sciences.

Plenary lectures
delivered by renowned specialists.

200 geoscientists are expected to participate.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is April 15th, 2022.
